Butterwick Hospice in Bishop Auckland are inviting supporters old and new to bring along their four legged friends and put their best paw forward.
A special route has been devised, set in the idyllic surroundings of Hamsterley Forest for dogs and their owners to take part in the first ever “Walkies in the Woods “.
The event will take place on Sunday 8th September commencing at 11am, and will cover a 3 mile route.
Activities, advice and stalls guaranteed to get tails wagging will run from 10am, when registration opens and owners can collect their “woofie goodie bag”.
Upon completion each dog will receive their own “dog tag” which can be attached to their collar as a lasting memory of this great event.
There will be show case activities and tricks from the County Durham based dog training company “Have a Good Dog” who will be able to advise on effective training methods, behaviour consultations as well as fun and agility displays.
Entry is just £5 per dog and Butterwick Hospice request that entrants try to raise essential funds by raising sponsorship via family, friends and colleagues by giving your pooch a pound to complete the route and the opportunity to set up a “just giving page “.
Entrants must register in advance, to sign up please apply for a registration form by telephoning Butterwick Hospice  – 01388 660644 or e-mail clairmcgregor@butterwick.org.uk
So come on register NOW, you would be barking mad to miss out!
