Tails will be wagging at Lutterworth Dog Festival.

Hundreds of dogs and their owners are expected at the event on Lutterworth Recreation Ground from midday to 4.30pm on Sunday May 14.

The event is being organised by Lutterworth and District Round Table with proceeds going to local causes and canine charities. Previously it has raised more than £10,000 with funds donated to Medical Detection Dogs, a charity providing medical support dogs and working to train cancer detection dogs, and Rugby-based rescue centre Pawprints Dog Rescue. This year donations will also help Canine Partners, which provides medical assistance dogs.

The show will include a have-a-go dog agility and a dog show, with categories including waggiest tail and best fancy dress. There will also be a fun fair, bar, food stalls, face painting and music by Lutterworth Town band.
