Salmesbury Hall Fun Dog Show 15th May, 2011

Well it started raining just after we set off up the M6 to Salmesbury Hall. We’d never visited this wonderful location before and were very impressed with the beauty and architecture of this wonderful old building. It’s definitely on our list of places to visit (on a day when we’re not working). When we arrived the rain was getting harder, the sky overcast and the weather & light could not have been much worse for day photographing an outdoor event. Still, professionals that we are, waterproofs on, we got on with the job and despite the weather we had a fantastic day. Met loads of wonderful people and their dogs and, despite the awful weather, managed to get some really good shots which you can see if you go to our gallery page where you can order prints in a variety of sizes and have them delivered directly to your door from the printers within a few days.

Best in Show

One of the highlights of the Show was a demonstration by Mellor Dog School where they demonstrated how even difficult dogs can be trained to an exceptionally high standard. The best bit for me though was when the ‘criminal’, dog clamped to his arm by its teeth, swung the dog around and the dog still hung on – all four feet in the air – rather reminiscent of a circus act.

And then just before the competition for Best in Show, was the Fancy dress. The owners showed some real talent, not only for design, but also for humour. The Bride & Groom walked away with first prize.

Don’t forget to visit the Gallery and have a look a the rest of the pictures.

A most enjoyable day.
