All dogs allowed at the Lincolnshire Show

Canine days: Dogs will once again be allowed on site at the show and doggie events are already confirmed.

Dogs will be allowed at the Lincolnshire Show this year, in addition to a number of dog-themed activities at the event.

People will be able to bring their dogs to the annual county show at The Showground and make use of the doggie crèche.

The crèche will be run by Jerry Green Dog Rescue, a local rescue service.

The charity’s canine behavioural advisor Rosina Myers said: “This is ideal for when dog owners are touring the areas of the show that don’t allow dogs, or simply if their dog is getting tired or overwhelmed by all the people.

“It will be run by our experienced rescue workers and they will be ensuring a calm and comfortable environment.”

For canine fans, there will also be plenty of events in the dog ring and competitions.

Merlin the ambassador dog for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People will be trying to raise £30,000 for the charity’s 30th anniversary.

Scruffts confirmed it will be running its Family Crossbreed Dog of the Year competition on both days — there is a £1 entry fee, no need to book.

Money raised will go to the Kennel Club Charitable Trust.

There will be a number of classes, with judges looking for good character, health and temperament.

These include most handsome Crossbreed Dog, prettiest Crossbreed Bitch, Child’s Best Friend and Golden Oldie Crossbreed.

Marketing coordinator for the Lincolnshire Show Karen Malpass said: “The first year of dogs on site went down very well with everyone, so we were confident it should be repeated this year.

“Obviously dogs have to be on leads and some areas are out of bounds, but we are certainly looking forward to more happy tail wagging this year!”

This year’s Lincolnshire Show will be on June 20 and 21. To book tickets, visit the Lincolnshire Show website or call 0845 2305171.
