Fido Fiestas come to Cheltenham!

Cheltenham’s top dogs will be crowned this summer at our special Fido Fiesta events to celebrate local dogs’ talents.  It will be waggy tails all round at the fun dog days with top advice and fun on offer to dedicated dog owners and their cute canines.

Dog owners will be able to visit one of the many information stands we have on offer and get money off vouchers and freebies for their pampered pooch.

The main attraction will be the fun dog show we are hosting which will see owners and their four-legged friends vie for the top spot in the following categories; Junior Handler, Cutest Puppy, Best Party Trick, Loveliest Veteran, Waggiest Tail, and Best in Show.

The canine visitors can even take part in a training session and test their speed over the fantastic agility course being built specially for the day, all for free.

The next Fido Fiestas will be taking place on:

  • Tuesday 23rd July, 2pm to 4pm – Caernarvon Road Recreation Ground, Hatherley
  • Tuesday 6th August, 2pm – 4pm – King George V Playing Field, Brooklyn Road, St Marks
  • Thursday 15th August, 2pm – 4pm – Clyde Crescent Playing Field, Oakley
  • Thursday 29th August, 2pm – 4pm – Elmfield Park, Elmfield Road, St Peters

Paul Stephenson, our Chief Executive, said: “We want to invite residents to come along, enjoy these fun events and make the most of the advice on offer. An event like this is our chance to benefit the whole community by encouraging responsible dog ownership and helping people make the most out of owning their beloved pet.”

Visitors to the event will hear top tips from Cheltenham Borough Council’s dog wardens and get money off vouchers for RSPCA vet checks. Cheltenham Animal Shelter will also be there promoting their free Staffordshire Bull Terrier neutering programme (open to all dogs and bitches under 2 years of age) and offering discounted micro-chipping – as a special show offer we will be providing the first 5 chips free of charge – first come, first chip!
