Fundraisers will be barking up the right tree as they stage a dog show at an East Renfrewshire farm.

The annual Armed Forces Day Dog Show takes place on Saturday, June 10, and will generate much-needed funds for the Bravehound charity.

This worthy cause provides assistance dogs for ex-service personnel suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or physical injuries as a result of their time in the military.

Those who go along to the dog show will be able to watch pooches compete for various prizes, including an award for the canine with the most aerodynamic ears.

Dog owners can also pay a £2 fee to have their four-legged friends entered in one of these contests.

Fiona MacDonald, founder of Bravehound, said: “This is the sixth year we have run this Armed Forces Day event and it’s always great fun.

“Our dogs are specially trained to perform a range of tasks which can make a huge difference to the life of a veteran. That could be picking up objects like medication, putting themselves in the way of their veteran and others to ensure personal space or just giving a cuddle on demand.

“We’d love people to support the event by coming along and it would be great to have people enter their furry friends in our various categories. They can do that on the day itself.

“It’s a great day out for all the family."

The event takes place at Riglaw Farm, in Roebank Road, which is around 15 minutes from Barrhead by car, from noon until 4pm.

Although it is free to attend, Bravehound is asking those who would like to go along to register in advance so the charity has an idea of the number of people to expect on the day.
