Pawsome fun run for dogs set to take place in Hatfield
An 'exciting' obstacle fun run for pooches is coming to Hatfield House next month.
On October 8 the Royal Veterinary College’s charity, The Animal Care Trust is inviting owners and their dogs to take part in The Mucky Pup Fun Run at Hatfield House.
The two-mile course will feature exciting obstacles suitable for all the family across the spectacular Hatfield House Estate, which is usually closed to the public at this time of year.
There will also be giveaways for all participants as well as prizes for the winners.
After the run, visitors can enjoy the demonstrations, stalls, and refreshments.
Event organiser, Claire Reynolds said: “We are so grateful to the Marquess of Salisbury for allowing us to hold this event at Hatfield House and we hope people will come from far and wide to take part in this fantastic family event.
“There will be all sorts of fun dog-themed activities.
“We just want to provide a great event to help people have fun with their dogs whilst raising funds to help the RVC treat the thousands of sick animals we see every year.”
The charity is also organising an event at its Hawkshead campus near Potters Bar on September 30, 2017, aiming to teach pet owners basic first aid should their pet get into trouble.
The inaugural first aid event took place last year and was hugely popular.
Karen Humm, RVC senior lecturer in emergency and critical care, said: “Getting in contact with your veterinary practice is key when you’re faced with an emergency involving your pet, but this first aid event will help you understand what to do before professional help is available.
“I’m looking forward to helping you feel more confident should the worst happen.”
