For the first time there will be a Fun Dog Show at the Rotary Spring Fair which will be held on Bank Holiday Monday 6th May.

It’s not Crufts but is a chance to show off your best furry friend to the folks of Rugby. There will be a class suitable for any dog in the town.

The Cutest Puppy and Best Veteran (over 8 years old) will be joined by the Prettiest Bitch and the Most Handsome Dog along with the Happiest Dog/Waggiest Tail in our Best in Show final.

There are rosettes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place in each class plus each class winner receives a dog food prize from Butchers Pet care. Best in Class takes away the additional prize of a £20 Gift Voucher from Pets at Home.

So whatever breed or age your dog is come along to the Rotary Spring Fair at Whitehall Recreation Ground (near the sports centre) and register his or her entry before 1pm at the Rotary HQ. Competition entry is just £2 for the first class entered and £1 for any additional class. Normal Spring Fair entry charges apply. The Dog Show kicks off at 1.20pm, so even if you’re not entering a dog, be sure to come by the main arena to enjoy the show at that time.

Ken Ure, Lead Project Manager for this year’s Rotary Spring Fair said “We are all looking forward to our first dog show but if today’s photoshoot with just six dogs in attendance is anything to go by, it’s going to be an exciting event to organise on the day!”

The show is generously sponsored by Butcher’s Pet Care, a local based company and profits from the event will be going to Rotary charities, including many good causes based or working in the town.
