A dog show will race into Wokingham this weekend featuring Crufts winning canines.
Dream Team Dog Club will present the free show at Cantley Park in Twyford Road on Saturday, May 19, from 8.30am to 5pm.
Flyball, a racing sport with dogs jumping hurdles and returning tennis balls to their owners, will feature in a tournament throughout the day.
Event organiser Roland White said: “We’re looking to raise awareness for the sport. We have moved our shows from farms to sites like leisure centres so more of the public can come along. It’s a really exciting sport for spectators as it can get quite competitive.
“We usually get between 50 and 100 dogs every show, so it should be a great day. People can bring their dogs along too and they can enter a competition at midday to win prizes. There are some fun categories like ‘dog that looks most like its owner’ and ‘best trick’.”
People must register in the morning to enter the competition.
Dream Team South East was the 2011 Crufts flyball champion and came third in this year’s competition.
