Ahead of Paws in the Park, a dogtastic day out for you and your furry friend, taking place at the South of England Showground in Ardingly (West Sussex) on 18th and 19th May and on 14th and 15th September at Kent Showground in Detling, we find out about the benefits owning a dog can bring to a family. Plus you can enter a competition below to win a family ticket to this May’s exciting event!

According to the PDSA 1 in 3 families and 49% of adults in the UK own a dog.

With the demands of modern life and children becoming more reliant on technology, having a dog in the family is proven to help children with social, emotional, mental and physical health.

Anyone who has owned a dog knows how they really become part of the family and deserve the title of man’s best friend! They are loyal, intelligent, devoted and affectionate.

Studies have even proven that a 15 minute walk with your dog can decrease symptoms of depression and anxiety. Dogs are helping children in schools with their concentration and reading and of course provide valuable companionship for the elderly.

If you are lucky enough to own a dog, you must not miss Paws in the Park the largest outdoor dog show for working, trained and pet dogs. The Show is held on 18th and 19th May at the South of England Showground, Ardingly. It’s a great day out for all the family and there are lots of have a go attractions suitable for any size, ability or shape of dog!
