2019 Bond Night

Dogs in Salford Festival

Held at Clifton Country Park, Clifton (M27 6NG) on Sunday 28 July 2019, 10.30am to 4pm you are invited to come along and get involved in our dog themed festival.

Now in our fifth year we are looking to help raise funds for Manchester and Cheshire Dogs’ Home, as well as promoting responsible dog ownership and coming together to share our love of dogs.

This year we are joined again by the PDSA who are providing free dog health checks, chipping and nail clipping and Salford Health Improvement team who will do free human health checks. The festival also includes stalls selling a range of doggy delights, promoting rescues as well as one or two human treats including homemade cakes.

For our younger two legged friends there is also face painting, bouncy castles and guess the breed.

For our four legged friends there will be a dog show, agility course and temptation alley.

The festival kicks off at 10.30am with the dog show starting at 11am opened by the Lower Kersal Morris Troupe.

The dog show

The dog show consists of the following categories costing £1 to enter each category. The categories are:

  • Prettiest Girl

  • Shaggiest Dog
  • Best Trick
  • Most Handsome Boy
  • Best Young Handler
  • Waggiest Tail
  • Best Rescue
  • Dog Judges want to take home

The winners from each category will then be entered in to the best in show.
