The World of Dogs arena is now in its third year at Wiltshire Game and Country Fair, held together by the inimitable Kevin Bradley. This year we are pleased to feature:
Paws for Thought Dog Display Team
Working dogs at their best. Demonstrating the brilliant talents and skills of rescue dogs.
Learn about and be entertained by these truly amazing canines. Informative, educational and entertaining this display incorporates obedience and agility, as well as stunning fire exercises. Dogs trained to the highest standard using reward based training techniques.
Paul Makepeace Gun Dogs
Watch and learn from gun dog trainer and handler Paul Makepeace as he demonstrates how a young gun dog can be trained up from puppyhood to a well trained gun dog you can confidently take on a shoot. Then learn what might happen on a shoot day, and how the different breeds are used to their best advantage.
Walk Up Shoot
With Paul Makepeace, Aubrey Ladyman and guests
Terrier racing will also be taking place twice daily in the world of dogs area, run by our own Living Heritage team. This will be fast and furious and open to all terrier breeds.
Full terrier show in the afternoons starting at 1pm
Chase the Bunny
Always hugely popular in the World of Dogs Arena – for all breeds (we race similar breeds together). If your dog likes to chase, he will love chasing the lure and seeing if he can beat the other dogs to the finishing line. Great fun to both watch and take part in with your dog.
Gun Dogs and Falconry
A unique and fascinating demonstration of how a bird of prey can be trained to work alongside its natural predator, the dog, in order to please their expert handlers Paul Makepeace (dogs) and Chris Neal (birds). They may even involve third member of this crack team, Stanley the ferret.
Meet all the dogs and handlers taking part in the World of Dogs Arena in our World of Dogs Village afterwards.
