Wet noses and waggy tails were in abundance at the Moor Park’s Bark 4 Life event this weekend.

Dog wardens from Preston City Council held a fun-filled doggy day at the park on Garstang Road, 
Preston, with activities including have-a-go agility courses, flyball and dry husky sledding with scooters and rigs to see if the public’s pooches had the power to pull.

Working dogs such as prison dogs, police dogs, and service dogs from the deaf dog network also showed off their skills at the event, which saw hundreds of people bring their best friends along to socialise and enjoy the outdoor entertainment.

Adrian Phillips, deputy director environment at Preston City Council, said: “The Bark 4 Life event was very successful with around 500 dog owners and families in attendance.

“The weather was great and there were many activities to participate in.

“Don’t worry if you missed this event as, on Saturday, June 14, the extremely popular annual ‘Ruffs’ is coming soon at Ashton Park with dog demonstrations, products and micro chipping brought to you by the friends of Ashton Park.”
