Millets Farm Family Dog Show

On Saturday 12th May 2018 Millets Farm will be hosting their 6th annual Millets Farm Family Dog Show.  The show is free for spectators and will be in support of the Guide Dog Association.  The show opens at 10am and will continue throughout the day until the last class finishes at 4:30pm.  The arena will be situated on the overflow car park grass area.

There are a number of classes, some formal and some just for fun.  You can also enjoy the many stalls and BBQ positioned around the arena.  Can you dog complete ‘temptation alley’ without picking up any goodies along the way?!  I know Willow couldn’t!
