31st August 2014 saw the first Lydiard Bark Charity Dog Show held at Lydiard Park in Swindon. The sun shone and it was a huge success. The 2 charities supported were the Prospect Hospice and PAT (Pets as Therapy). A big thank you to those who donated their time, their money, prizes and sponsorship, we are extremely grateful. The charities will be putting the money you helped to raise to good use.
We had over 1,500 vistors to the show with their dogs, 325 entries into our classes and raised lots of money for The Prospect Hospice and PAT (Pets as Therapy). Thank you everyone who came and made it such a special day. The dogs were amazing. At one point we had 50 dogs (Best Brace Class) in the ring and there was not a single grumble between the dogs (owners were pretty well behaved too!). SwindonWeb have some really lovely photos on their website and there are more on our Facebook page HERE

We are currently in the planning stages of Lyidard Bark 2015. We will be making some changes to classes. Classes will remain at a manageable size but there will be more of them held over 2 rings. We also plan to have a puppy class for puppies under 6 months (but fully vaccinated) . We also plan to have more demos and 'have a go' actiivities.
