A CHARITY which provides assistance dogs to disabled people will benefit from a huge dog competition.

Owners and their dogs are set to come from all over the south for the Super Pet Dog Competition at Queen Elizabeth Country Park on June 24.

For the fifth year running the event will raise money for Canine Partners, which is based near Chichester.

Organiser Glenis Lawrenson, who is a volunteer puppy parent for Canine Partners, said: ‘This is a great day out for all dog lovers. Last year over 500 people attended and we raised £3,500. There will be lots going on, whether you want to enter your dog in a competition or just come along to spectate. We are delighted to be able to raise funds for Canine Partners once again and help to support the valuable work the charity does to change the lives of people with disabilities.’

Entry costs £3 with rosettes and dog treats for all those that complete the course and there are four trophies to be won. For more information call (023) 9200 655 or (023) 92597 160. Agility entries must be made in advance.
