K9 Aqua Sports

K9 Aqua returns to this year's All About Dogs Shows due to popular demand! Come along and let your dog have a go and get super wet in this increasingly popular sport. Remember to bring your camera as you are sure to get some good shots of dogs flying through the air!

Agility Course

Dog agility is a dog sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. Dogs run off leash with no food or toys as incentives, and the handler can touch neither dog nor obstacles. Organised by the Essex Flyers, the agility course is open to dogs of all ages and breeds.

Flyball

Organised by Solar Flyball Team, Flyball is a fun, fast sport for you and your dog (any breed, any size), as long as dogs are over 12 months old they can play flyball. Bring your dog to visit the team and have a go at this increasingly popular dog sport.

Hurdles and Lure Racing

ACES was started by a small group of friends that enjoyed getting out and about with their dogs, the days got more popular with more people wanting to know what's going on and where. Join the ACES team and see if your dog can get the fastest time in either the lure race or hurdles.

Fastest Recall

Fastest recall is a test of speed. It's a high energy canine sport which requires your dog to chase a toy.... then come back on recall. Will your dog be the quickest of the day? All proceeds of the Recall go to the German Shepherd Rescue Elite.

Fun Obstacle Course

This year's obstacle course challenge is organised by the Notts & Yorkshire Boxer Rescue. The fastest times within each hour will win a prize. Fastest dog of the day wins a rosette.
