VIsitors to Webbs Garden Centre in Wychbold, Worcestershire, are being encouraged to celebrate their pets this Saturday as part of Love Your Pet Day...
Animal experts will be on hand on Saturday, June 27 to talk to people about any pet problems they might have and give advice on how to provide the best care for their pets from furry friends to fish.
There will also be an opportunity to see some more exotic animals up close with an animal roadshow featuring lurchers, greyhounds and miniature ponies.
People are being invited to bring along their dogs for a fun dog show, where pets can compete in classes including agility, most handsome dog, prettiest bitch, best puppy, waggiest tail, fancy dress, best trick, best junior handler, best rescue, best in show and judges’ favourite.
A local vet will be on hand to microchip dogs, and visitors will also be able to bring their rabbits and guinea pigs for a well check and free claw clipping.
Webbs chairman Ed Webb said: “We are a nation of pet lovers and we want to celebrate that with our Love Your Pet Day.
"It’s a great chance for people to talk to our experts about pets, reptiles and fish and perhaps get up close to some creatures they haven’t met before.
"The dog show will be great fun and we are looking to see pets of all shapes and sizes taking part.”
