Over 75 guests and their fluffy companions joined in the fun at the first ever Dog Well-being event held at Ramsden Bellhouse Community Hall last Sunday March 3.
The event which took place from 11am until 3pm and involved a great range of dog-friendly exhibitors.
These included Embark on the Raw based in Crays Hill who are a specialist natural pet store, Ellie & Finn’s Party Club, fun pet photography, Barleylands Craft Village favourite Hazle Pottery Barn with their paw prints ceramics, Lisa and Louise’s dog treats based in Laindon and We Woof frozen raw dog food.
A presentation was made by leading holistic practitioner, kinesiologist and animal healer Britta Hochkeppel.
Britta provided attendees with guidance and tip sheets on how to look after their pet’s wellbeing, including how to treat common problems holistically, such as anxiety separation and socialising with other dogs.
Event organiser Abby Knight said:
“We were really pleased to see so many at our first event – the response was great andBritta was able to carry out some important on-the-spot healing which was really helpful.
“The dogs were all very well-behaved, too, just like a mini Crufts and the children that attended loved all the different types of dogs that they got to meet.”
