WREXHAM is set to host a fantastic dog show for the whole family to enjoy next month.

Acton Park will host its first ever fun dog show with prizes, stalls, craft, displays and more on Sunday, February 11 at11.30am until 4pm.

To celebrate the nearly 500 year old sweet chestnut tree winning the Tree of the Year competition, hosted by the Woodland Trust, locals are encouraged to come and enjoy a fun day for all the family.

Entry will be £1 per category to enter of four classes for £3 with all proceeds being gifted to Almost Home Dog Rescue, a local charity who have rehomed 1,241 dogs to date.

Class registration opens at 11.30am and you can continue to enter classes throughout the day. Judging will begin at 12.15pm with the class timetable advertised on the day and in the programme.

An event organiser said: "There are rosettes and prizes to be won, including the best in show winner receiving a tree planted in the park in honour of their dog!

"It will be super fun to take part or just to watch, we’re hoping to see lots of enthusiastic pet parents and hopeful little ones handling their best friend in the show ring! Don’t forget to see who wins best in show at 3.45pm."

On the day there will be a selection of stall holders including: local vets, groomers, charities, games, dog treats and a pet photography opportunity where an award winning photographer will catch your pooch’s best side, as well as food and refreshment trucks if you get peckish.
