Cheltenham’s top dogs will be crowned this summer at a series of special Fido Fiesta events that celebrate local dogs’ talents.

It will be waggy tails all round at the fun dog days with top advice and fun on offer to dedicated dog owners and their cute canines.

Hosted by Cheltenham Borough Homes (CBH), dog owners will be able to visit one of the many information stands and get money off vouchers and freebies for their pampered pooch.

The main attraction will be the fun dog show which will see owners and their four-legged friends vie for the top spot in the following categories:

  • Junior Handler
  • Cutest Puppy
  • Best Party Trick
  • Loveliest Veteran
  • Waggiest Tail
  • Best in Show

The canine visitors can even take part in a training session and test their speed over the fantastic agility course being built specially for the day, all for free.

The next Fido Fiestas will be taking place on:

Tuesday 23rd July – Caernarvon Road Recreation Ground, Hatherley

Tuesday 6th August – King George V Playing Field, Brooklyn Road, St Marks

Thursday 15th August – Clyde Crescent Playing Field, Oakley

Thursday 29th August – Elmfield Park, Elmfield Road, St Peters

Paul Stephenson, Chief Executive at CBH, said: “We want to invite residents to come along, enjoy these fun events and make the most of the advice on offer. An event like this is our chance to benefit the whole community by encouraging responsible dog ownership and helping people make the most out of owning their beloved pet.”

Visitors to the event will hear top tips from Cheltenham Borough Council’s dog wardens, get free micro-chipping from Cheltenham Animal Shelter and money off vouchers for RSPCA vet checks.
