Novelty Dog Show and Fun Day Out for the Family in Essex

Remus Horse Sanctuary will be opening its gates on Sunday 7 July to welcome members of the public for its Novelty Dog Show and Family Fun Day taking place from 1pm to 4pm. The Dog Show will commence at 1.30pm with bookings being taken from 1pm.

Open Days at the Sanctuary at Little Farm, Buttsbury, near Ingatestone, offer free parking on-site, with disabled access. Admission is charged at just £7 per adult and £5 for children. Cream Teas can be booked in advance for £15 per person, including entry. All dogs are welcome on a lead.

The popular novelty Dog Show includes fun classes such as: Bad Hair Day and Best Sausage Catcher, along with the more meaningful: Dogs with a Disability (for example blind, deaf or with a life-changing illness) and of course, the ever-popular Best in Show. The 1st – 6th winners will each receive a rosette and class entry is £2 per class.

The events at the Sanctuary are always fun and interesting for the whole family, with a children’s entertainer, live music and sing-a-long entertainment, delicious refreshments, lots of stalls, a tombola and a raffle.

The Open Days are a vital source of fundraising for the charity which, due to its location on greenbelt land, can only open to the public for a limited number of days each year.

Sue Burton, founder of the Sanctuary says, “Our novelty dog shows offer a new dimension to our Open Days and we always look forward to inviting visitors to come and visit the Sanctuary and learn more about what we do here.

“Young and old always have such a great time. They get to meet some of our amazing animals and we give them an insight into the valuable work that we do in a fun way.”
