‘On the Scent’ Agility
For athletic dogs, there’s the agility arena, where all shapes and sizes are encouraged to have a go. It’s a great way to train your dog whilst having plenty of fun at the same time. Dogs need to be over one year old to have a go. £2 a go. Agility demonstration at 2:30pm.
Blue Cross Fun Dog Scurry
There’s the fun dog scurry, run by the Blue Cross in Felixstowe, where dogs can leap over straw bales, after watching (often with bemusement) their owners hurdling the bales ahead of them ‘to show them how to do it’.
Watch the team’s demonstration then have a go at yourself to see if your dog’s up to the task! The dogs have to leap of four hurdles, release and catch the ball from the flyball machine and run back over the jumps to their owner. £2.50 for 3 runs. Demonstration at 11.30am in the Suffolk Ring.
Tasty treats including: Ice cream, drinks, burgers, sausages, curries, doughnuts, fish and chips and Thai food.
Over 70 stalls including: Photographers, charities, dog food and accessories, gifts for allthe family and much more!

Pet Dog Rally Obedience
Pet Dog Rally obedience is an exciting new sport for all dogs. Basic obedience skills are all that is required. Join us in our ring where you and your dog can take part.
The Eason Harriers Hunt originated in the late 1800s when William, the 12th Duke of Hamilton, invested in a pack of hounds, new kennels and huntsmen. The hounds attracted some of the best riders of the time. Following his death the hunt was sold and moved to a number of locations before returning to Easton in 1925.
Gun Dog Scurry
Bring your dog to have some fun or watch other dogs trying to retrieve the dummy from the lake.
Catch the Rabbit
For dogs that love chasing, there’s ‘catch the rabbit’ – oh, what doggy bliss to run without restraint across a field, and to catch what looks like a stuffed sock at the end.
Children’s Activity Area
Children’s activities include: ‘bungey trampolining’, a bouncy castle and an inflatable slide.
