Easter Dogs Day Out

Sat, 13th April 2019

Love dogs? This is a day for you! 

As well as the usual fun and games throughout the day, we are delighted to be joined by Phase Purple Agility Training who will be doing a Hoopers & Agility demo between 11am and 1pm. Our Fun Dog Show "Pup Stars" will be from 1.30pm and is open to all dogs and owners (see classes below and please enter on the day) We are lucky enough to have Judith Carruthers, CRUFTS Winner of Best in Show Gun Dog Group with Luther, her Irish Water Spaniel, judging our Pup Stars classes!

'Master Dog' (a fun chance to measure your dog's IQ) will run throughout the day as will our Woodland Scent Treasure Hunt! Morag, an ex-resident of Oak Tree, now a fully qualified Mountain Rescue Dog, will be making an appearance, unless she is called out on duty for the Penrith team. We are lucky enough to be welcoming Kerry, Max, Paddy and Harry of 'Max Out in the Lake District' fame who will be attending between 11.00am and midday!

Coomara Vets are hosting a Health and Weight Check Clinic and OTAC staff will be on hand offering free Behavioural Consultancy while our Community Team will be available throughout the day to answer any questions you may have. 

Local businesses, including Chip off the Old Block (fabulous chainsaw wood carvings), Peter Barlow Photography, and Lynne Orvis Dog Grooming will also be here all day. My Nest Egg (one of our fabulous partners who have generously offered to donate £25 for every £100 will established through contact with Oak Tree, regardless of whether or not you decide to leave a legacy to us) will be offering valuable advice and Pippa’s Tea Room & Delicatessen will also be on site. Paws to Print will be doing Paw Prints on the spot and we have the amazing Fun Project Face & Body Art coming to paint faces for the day! 

There will be games galore, our very own cake stall, and our tearoom 'The Barkery' will be serving delicious food and drink all day.

We very much hope you can join us for what promises to be a fantastic day celebrating our love of dogs and Easter!
