The Chet Carnival and Community Group organised its first fun dog show at Jubilee Hall today, with eight classes, stalls and a demonstration from the K9 Capers.

The classes, which were all sponsored by local businesses, included musical dogs, best pedigree, most handsome dog, best fancy dress of handler and dog and fastest recall.

Rosettes were awarded to third place, and goody bags for the winners and runners up were provided by Dogs Trust and Pets at Home.

Organiser Maureen Livings said: 'There was a lot more people than we thought so we are really pleased, and each class had over 30 dogs.
