Dog lovers and their four legged friends can once again come together at a dog themed celebration in Salford.

Owners and their furry friends are encouraged to visit Clifton Country Park on Sunday 22 July for a day of doggy delights.

Running from 11am to 4pm the Dogs in Salford Festival will feature a dog show, agility course and temptation alley.

Dogs will be able to get free health checks, chipping and nail clipping thanks to the PDSA. And while their canine companions are being pampered, owners can get a free health check thanks to the Salford Health Improvement team.

Councillor David Lancaster, Lead Member for Environment and Community Safety at Salford City Council, said: “This festival is all about bringing the community together and celebrating our four legged friends. But you don’t have to have a dog to attend – simply come along and enjoy the day.

“All money raised will go towards Rochdale Dog Rescue who look after so many of the strays our dog wardens find. They provide loving care and help them find a new home.”

For children there is face painting, bouncy castles, fruit animals and guess the breed.

The dog show consists of the following categories costing £1 to enter each category. The categories are:

•Prettiest Girl sponsored by Rob Hiatt

•Best Scruff sponsored by Source 7

•Best Trick sponsored by Four Acres Doggie Day Camp and professional Groomers

•Most Handsome Boy sponsored by Doggy’s DoLittle

The winners from each category will then be entered in to the best in show.
