Norfolk – 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 this year’s timetable is 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 the 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. Activity is run by Funky Fidos.

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.

KC Good Citizen Dog Scheme Bronze Level Test: A series of simple exercises to test good control of your dog together with responsible ownership. Entrants will either gain a “Pass” and be presented with a free Certificate and rosette sponsored by Skeyton K9 Dog Training or, a “Not Ready” mark if the required standard isn’t reached. Please click here for more detailed information about the test. Skeyton K9 Dog Training Club will be hosting the test for their fourth consecutive year and for both days, free advice on the Scheme will be available at the SK9DT Stand.

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 scramble, a long retrieve and an obstacle retrieve. 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.

Temptation Alley: Can your dog make it to the end of our brand new Temptation Alley? Call your dog and see if they can come back to you without being tempted by any of the treats, toys and food in Temptation Alley. There’s two courses to choose from – if you feel confident after the beginners fun course, why not try the timed advanced course where rosettes will be awarded for first to third place. Activity is run by Malamute Matters.

Diggers Delight: You’ve heard of a lucky dip – well this is a lucky ‘dig’!  Can your dog find the treat bag hidden in the digging pit? Activity is run by Dogs for Autism.

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.

Egg & Spoon Race: Do you have steady hands? Could you keep a rubber egg on a spoon with your dog at your side? It’s the ultimate test of teamwork, obedience and balance as you and your dog make your way down the track in this timed fun race. There’s also fun for kids too with ‘Pin the Tail on the Malamute’. Activities run by Malamute Matters.
