Waggy tails will be par for the course at a dog family fun day.

The Raven River Dog Training event takes place at Heighley Gate on Sunday, with plenty of activities for pet pooches, as well as their owners.

There will be a club agility show, have-a-go flyball, a fun scentwork trail and gundog scurry, as well as a dog show with categories such as most handsome, best fancy dress, best biscuit catcher, scruffiest dog, junior handler and waggiest tail.

Human visitors can browse the trade stands, sample a barbecue and have fun on a bouncy castle.

The event runs from 10am to 4pm.

The dog show takes place at 11.30am and registration for the classes is from 10.30am. Entry to the classes is £1, but there is free admission to the fun day.
