Thousands of dogs of almost every breed imaginable attended a show organised specially for man’s best friend in Suffolk .

All About Dogs returned to Trinity Park in Ipswich today for the first of two days of canine-friendly fun for pampered pooches.

Steve Upson, director with Aztec Events, the show’s organiser, said people of all ages had turned out with their family pets and “absolutely loved it”.

“There were literally thousands of dogs of every breed imaginable from great danes to chihuahuas,” he added

“It’s been a great atmosphere all day, everyone has been enjoying the reasonably nice weather and the rare opportunity to enjoy a day out with all of the family, including the dogs.

“We wanted to make it a fun event for like-minded people who love their dogs and that’s exactly what it’s been.”

Mr Upson said the event had grown in popularity over the five years since it started to now include seven different shows across the country.

Highlights of this year’s event included a fun dog show, which was entered by more than 100 pets, and featured categories such as “loveliest lady”, “most endearing rescue dog” and “most gorgeous golden oldie”.

Other attractions included demonstrations from dog display teams, obedience classes, lessons in agility and games of frisbee.

A number of canine charities also attended, such as the Retired Greyhound Trust and German Shepherd Rescue Association to raise awareness about their work rehousing abandoned pets. Other stands were manned by breeders and retailers selling a wide selection of dog toys and products.

The event continues at Trinity Park tomorrow from 9.30am - 5pm, with tickets available on the gate or for a discounted price by visiting
