There was agility training and a course, many thanks to Nuala O’Brien and her team for setting it up and running it. We had a PEATA pet therapy stand and Great Dane PEATA dogs, many thanks to Catherine. We had a kiddies corner including face painting, colouring in and pony rides. Guess the Great Danes weight. Fun dog show sponsored by Royal canin, thanks so much to Mary Davidson for donating Royal Canin vouchers and prizes. Training and socialisation run by Anne marie which everyone enjoyed. There was also a cake stand, a raffle and tea, coffee and refreshments made available all day by Karen Rice and her mum Trish, thank you both.
