The day will provide the opportunity for dog owners to meet up and talk with experts from different areas. This includes local organisations that will be on hand to offer top tips and advice on how to explore the countryside safely with your four-legged friends, including The Wildlife Trust, Gower Seal Group and RSPB. 

The event is supported by natural pet food maker and National Trust partner, Forthglade, who are working together on a Dogs Welcome project, helping people and their dogs get even more out of the places cared for by the National Trust. 

Suitable for all the family, fun free classes to enter on the day include the best-behaved dog, the cutest puppy and the waggiest tail. Prizes will be presented by the local MP for Gower, Tonia Antoniazzi.  

Alan Kearsley – Evans, National Trust Cymru’s General Manager for Brecon Beacons and Gower said:  “We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to Rhosili for the Dog Show. Thank you to Tonia Antoniazzi for her support and joining us on the day to present prizes. It is fantastic to work with many community groups in the area, who will each bring something different to the day and highlight how we can all visit the countryside safely with dogs.  

“Our family-friendly event will encourage everyone to join in and have a fun day out on Gower. There are some fantastic classes and activities to get involved with, alongside interesting advice, tips and guidance. We hope everyone has a fantastic day out surrounded by nature at Rhosili”.

To ensure the safety of all visitors and dogs to the Dog Day the Trust are asking owners to check that their dogs are up to date with their vaccinations and are kept on a short lead.

On arrival, visitors will be directed to the events field near the Rhosili car park. A pink National Trust flag will indicate where you can register your dog for the competitions.
