Egged on by their owners, they got their noses down for a trail of treats at a farm near Wymondham.

Kathryn Cross, who runs Centre Paws at Barnham Farm, off the Barnham Broom Road, said: 'We've had quite a few turn out who hadn't booked tickets. We've had more than 100 dogs.'

Those completing the trail were rewarded with pup cakes – special carrot and honey-flavoured treats – and dog-friendly ice creams. The event was organised by Dogs Furiendly, which promotes dog-friendly venues and attractions.

Mrs Cross, a former journalist, set up Centre Paws just over a year ago with husband David, who is a farmer. She has no regrets at swopping deadlines for canines.
