Dogs to have their day at Hammersmith’s Ravenscourt Park

Residents will be proudly parading their pooches at Hammersmith & Fulham’s annual dog show in under two weeks’ time.

The event in Ravenscourt Park, Hammersmith, is open to any breed of dog and there will be other entertainment including a bouncy castle, a raffle, face painting and a slide.

It costs just £2 to enter your dog at the event on Saturday 10 September with prizes up for grabs in the following classes:

  • Golden Oldie
  • Best rescue dog
  • Best young handler                                                                        
  • Best crossbreed
  • Best puppy
  • Best pedigree
  • Best in show 

“We know residents love the borough’s parks almost as much as they love their dogs and events like this really show how popular they are,” said Cllr Wesley Harcourt, Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport and Residents’ Services.

“The annual dog show is always a popular event and among the fun, you’ll be able to chat to our friendly parks police team who can offer some helpful tips and advice.”   

The event runs from 12pm but please arrive at 11am to register if you would like your dog to take part in the competition.                 

There will also be a dog agility course, as well as the chance to get your pooch microchipped and have their claws clipped.

The event is run by H&F Council’s parks police and proceeds will go to the Dogs Trust charity. It has been sponsored by John Parnham Funfairs, Ravenscourt Park teahouse Fait Maison, Sainsbury’s and Pets At Home.
