Paws in the Park 2019
The Go Get it team of Yvonne, Louise, Amelia and Rebecca thoroughly enjoyed exhibiting at Paws in the Park last weekend (14th - 15th September). Located at the Detling Showground in Kent, it was a perfect outdoor and indoor venue for one of Britain’s favourite dog shows.
The sun was shining and there was something for everyone, including activities for our canine friends. With around 22,000 visitors and 15,000 dogs over the weekend, we were in dog heaven!
Go Get it sponsored one of the busiest attractions, the Dash ’n’ Splash pools at the K9 Aquazone. There were two smaller training pools where dogs were assessed on their confidence and jumping skills before qualifying to the long jump pool.
There were competitions each day in the long jump pool for who could jump the furthest with three categories - Maxi dogs, Mini dogs and Newcomers with rosettes and prizes awarded to the winners.
Our free gift bags were very popular and we ran a competition on our stand to win an ultimate dog treat hamper – watch this space for the winner to be announced!
We met some fantastic dogs, and their owners, at the show including a pack of Malamute Cross Breeds – our hearts melted! Kelly and Billy, their owners, run KareBear Kennels, a doggy day care and doggy holiday centre and after hearing about their own dogs, we will definitely be using their services!

We also had the privilege of meeting Thumberlina, the beautiful Chihuahua who raises money for PDSA travelling around in her electric car.
Paws in the Park really was an incredible event with arena displays, dog games and activities including flyball, agility tests, displays by Guide Dogs for the Blind, gun dogs demonstrations and canine search and rescue to name a few. There were also rescue centres and charities, and of course lots of shopping for everything a dog needs.
