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. CLICK HERE for the full timetable of this year’s Fun Dog Show classes.

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 Sports.

Agility: A fun and energetic dog sport where the handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. Dogs run off lead with no food or toys as incentives, and the handler can touch neither dog nor obstacles. Activity is run by Bullies Training Agility Club BTAC.

Mini-Agility: Designed with smaller dogs in mind, mini-agility gives dogs and their owners the chance to have a go at an adapted agility obstacle course suitable for small breeds. Activity is run by Pug Life Rescue.

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.

Scurries: This fun have-a-go activity is based on your dog’s ability to retrieve. This year’s event will include a ‘Bales Up n Over’ and a ‘2 Dummy Pick Up’ challenge. There will also be a Fastest Winner competition. All runs will be timed and the top four times of the day will get prizes and rosettes. Activity is run by the Jixenwell GunDogs.

Hoopers: Hoopers is one of the UK’s fastest growing dog sports. The activity is based on agility, but is joint friendly making this a great low impact dog sport. The courses are made up of hoops, tunnels and barrels and are great for dogs of all sizes and ages. Activity is run by the Bullies Training Agility Club BTAC.

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.

Temptation Alley: How focussed is your dog? Can they make it through this year’s Temptation Alley? See if you can call your dog from one end to the other without them getting tempted by treats and toys along the way. The quickest three dogs of the day to complete course receive a rosette! Activity is run by Malamute Matters.

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.
