Paws in the Park – Rouken Glen Park

The Glasgow Dog Training Club’s big doggy day – “Paws in the Park” takes place this Saturday. The forecast is looking good – warm with sunny spells, and the event sounds fabulous for anyone with an interest in dogs.

There are all sorts of dog displays from heelwork to music to flyball. And perhaps even better for some, lots of ‘Have a Try’ activities including flyball, lurecoursing, agility and more. For the two legged companions there will be lots of lovely craft stalls (one in particular that I’m interested in is hand-crafted wooden items) and pony rides, face painting etc for the kids.

The purpose of the event is simply to celebrate the fact that the Glasgow Dog Training club has been running for 30 years. A lot of people have been putting a tremendous amount of work into planning the event over the past year so it really should be a great day out!

The event runs from 12pm – 4pm.

And the best bit….

Beanie and Biggles will be taking part in the flyball demo! (I think the flyball demo starts ast 12pm if you want to cheer them on…..or have a laugh – it could go either way with our two !).

It’ll be good practice for them. They entered their first little competition last week up in Dundee, but we’re planning on taking them down to Redcar in Yorkshire next month for a propper starters competition. It seems the whole of the club is going so it’ll be lovely to watch the baby class in their first competition! It’s amazing how quickly they’ve all progressed.
