Ears pricked and tails wagging? It’s time to get ready for the fifth year of Ilkley Carnival’s Fun Dog Show.
Whether pedigrees or mongrels, the show, sponsored by Aireborough Skip Hire, welcomes any willing owner and furry friend into the ring. Event judges say they are looking for a good team partnership between dog and owner, making for a happy, healthy, well balanced family pet.
A range of prizes, rosettes and food are up for grabs which have been kindly donated by Tyler James Pet Supplies of Ilkley and thanks to Matt from Bark Dog Walking & Pet Services for judging.
