From agility demonstrations from the Norfolk Dog Training Society (NDTS) to fly balling demonstrations, to a display from the Mid Norfolk Gundog Club, everything was on offer to an adoring audience.

Trainer Julia Morter and her dog Ellie train with the NDTS a few times a week.

The Barford resident said: 'Ellie really enjoys it, she doesn't know she's working.'

Ellie is now a grade 7 trained dog, meaning she can compete at Championship level.

Julia, 70, continued: 'She's obsessed with hedgehogs too, she loves playing with them! Her incentive in the shows is treats, little bits of fried fish usually. I do sometimes leave them in my pockets though and then put it in the wash which isn't nice!'
