Hylands – Have a Go Activities

Bring your dog and have fun together at this year’s have-a-go-activities*! It’s a great chance to bond with your dog and learn something new – or if you’ve tried the activities before, you can build on your skills together. If you enjoy yourselves, make sure you speak to the team running the activity as they may run a club that you can join too! 

This year’s activities include:

Fun Dog Shows: Does your dog have the waggiest tail or are they the most handsome hound? Take part in our Fun Dog Shows for the chance to win rosettes and compete in our Best in Show! All Fun Dog Shows are run by dog rescues and charities. More details on class times coming soon.

Dock Diving: 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! Activity is run by K9 Aqua.

Flyball: 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. If your dog loves a tennis ball and being active or if you’re looking for an activity you and your dog can do together, have a go at this increasingly popular dog sport. Activity is run by the Solar Flyball team in Wickford, Essex.

Lure Racing: This activity is great fun to watch! See your dog chase the lure – can they get the fastest time of the day? Activity is run by ACES.

Hurdles: Let your dog have a go at Hurdles – a great activity for dogs to use their coordination and speed as they jump their way through the line of hurdles. Will they get the quickest time? Activity is run by ACES.

Scurries: Take part in fun dog scurries, which will be against the clock with prizes to be won! The scurries include a multi item pick up, a long retreive and an obstacle retreive. The fastest three dogs get great prizes and special prizes for juniors too. Activity is run by Felleywood Flyers.

Mini Agility: Designed specifically for smaller breeds in mind, have a go at the fun ‘Mini Agility’ course. Activity is run by Muffin Pug Rescue.

Fastest Recall: This 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.

Tombola Dash: The fastest times within each hour will win a prize. Fastest dog of the day wins a rosette. Activity is run by the Notts & Yorkshire Boxer Rescue.
