A major part of the Binsted Fete tradition is the Fun Family Dog show.

In 2021 we had our Biggest, Fluffiest, and most Four Legged event EVER! We had over 110 different four legged friends compete across 14 Dog Show categories. It was great. Musical Sits was a personal favourite of mine to judge!

2022 categories are now OPEN! Simply click on the entry form button below to let us know what categories you’d like to enter.

Pre-entry closes at midnight on Thursday 30th June 2022. There may be limited places available on the day, but we will update you on the website of any classes are sold out.
