Sanderson Arcade is organising a new event called Sanderson Barkade.

Sanderson Barkade will have a pop-up doggy market on Saturday, June 5 with plenty of traders selling everything from dog accessories to pup portraits – plus Sanderson’s Department Store will have their very own ‘Betty’s Boutique pop up’ selling the very best in dog wear and trendy accessories.

On Sunday, June 6, from 10am, there will be talks and demos from dog experts, trainers and groomers and from noon the Barkade competitions will commence, presented by Matt Bailey and judged by Pets at Home Morpeth.

Competition categories include Owner Most Like Their Dog, Golden Oldie, Best Puppy, Fancy Dress, The Pup Skill Triathlon (Waggiest Tail, Quickest Sit and Pawshake) and Best Rescue.

Application forms are now open for all categories. From each category a first, second and third pooch will be chosen, with a special prize for the top dog and rosettes for top three pups.

Winners in each category will win a goodie bag filled with doggy treats worth up to £50.
