Come and try your hand at winning a Doglympics medal! With a range of events to test your dog (with your help!), Doglympics will be back specially for Suffolk Dog Day this year. Win each heat and receive your medal at the awards ceremony after each activity. So be prepared to run, throw, jump and fetch to beat the opposition!
Lots of fun dog classes for you to enjoy.
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.
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.
Tasty treats including: Ice cream, drinks, burgers, sausages, curries, doughnuts, fish and chips and Chinese food.
Over 80 stalls including: Photographers, charities, dog food and accessories, gifts for allthe family and much more!
The cream of Suffolk’s home-grown musicians and singer-songwriters bringing you their own unique sounds – folk, rock, blues and everything in between!
Children’s activities include: ‘bungee trampolining’, aqua zorbing, go-karting, a bouncy castle and an inflatable slide.
The Easton 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.
Bring your dog to have some fun or watch other dogs trying to retrieve the dummy from the lake.
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.
