Leeds, West Yorkshire
We’re welcoming all dog lovers and their canine chums to take part in Battersea's Muddy Dog Challenge and to raise money to help care for our dogs and cats. Join us and take on the UK's first 2.5km and 5km obstacle runs that you can tackle with your dog. You can enter as a dog-and-human duo or go solo if your pampered pooch wants to sit out. Prepare yourself for a day of mud, sweat, and cheers on our dog-friendly obstacle course. By taking part, you’ll be helping us provide love and care for the thousands of lost, abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats that come into our care. In 2019, Muddy Dog Challenges will take place in Exeter, Windsor, Cheltenham, Nottingham, Manchester, Tunbridge Wells, Newcastle and Leeds. 2019 registration is now open: http://fal.cn/iASe

UK’s ‘ultimate day out for animal lovers of all ages’ returns to Birmingham It’s time to let the cat out of the bag… the National Pet Show, sponsored by Petsurance from The PDSA, is back for its sixth year. It returns to Birmingham’s NEC on the Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 November. Bigger, better and furrier than ever, The National Pet Show will showcase so much more than just pups and pussycats. Tagging along will be everything from reptiles to rabbits, ponies to parrots and goldfish to guinea pigs, just to start! It’s fun for all the family as animal lovers great and small can learn about a myriad of species and breeds – as well as getting the chance to stroke them and take selfies with them along the way. There’ll be enthralling educational talks from experts plus ongoing animal demonstrations while the displays will have visitors clapping, cheering, and even joining in.

Fundraising Walk for Schnauzers in Need by Mad About Schnauzers UK Donations aren’t compulsory but we will be taking donations at the walk or you can donate via our Virgin Giving Money Page after the walks link here https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/mas Can’t wait to see the dogs dressed in their fabulous Christmas attire! Walks Etiquette Below are just a few simple pointers to ensure happy walks. We want everyone to enjoy group walks! Firstly, please keep an eye on your own dog and make sure he’s not misbehaving or getting lost! If your dog is bothering another (possibly anxious) dog, please stop him, even if you have to put him on a lead. We all walk at different paces. If you set off at a gallop, please keep glancing behind. Some dogs like to be up front so if you don’t recognise a dog in your little group, please attempt to find his owner. Listen for someone shouting their dog’s name. It’s really easy to lose your dog in a big group! Some owners choose to keep their dog on a lead for their own good reasons and some dogs have a yellow lead sleeve, vest, harness etc letting people know they are anxious or need space so please watch out for something like that. Please NEVER feed someone else’s dog without their permission. They might have allergies or food reactions, be a ‘snatcher’ or even just on a diet! If you’re walking on a beach, park etc and you decide it’s time for you to go home please ALWAYS ensure that someone else’s dog isn’t following you off lead into an unsafe area. After all, they’re sociable little beggars but that could be dangerous if you haven’t realised. If the weather isn’t as nice as expected, please still attend the walk. It will always go ahead unless an announcement has been made to the contrary. Just come prepared. Your dogs probably won’t care! But most of all, enjoy yourselves! MAS walks are primarily for fun, but if you have enjoyed yourself and would like to make a donation to our fund for schnauzers in need please follow this link and giftaid your donation if you are a UK taxpayer:
