Pooches put on a performance for the crowds at an annual show at the weekend.

Cottesmore Hunt Kennels held its open day on Sunday and scores of families from far and wide turned out to enter their pets in the dog show.

The day also featured a bouncy castle, a tea and cake stall and car boot sale.

Organisers are still counting up the final total raised at the event.

Proceeds will be split between the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance and towards the purchase of a new trailer for the kennel.

Group chairman Joanne Rutter said: “We had more people than ever before so it was quite a successful day.

“More than 250 people turned up so we were very pleased with that.

“We had so much going on and it was a fun day for the whole family.

“It’s great to be able to support the air ambulance.”

The winner of the lurcher show was four-year-old Wilf, a bedlington whippet cross greyhound, owned by Julie Tinsley from Burnwood, Staffordshire.

Three-year-old Bundy, a patterdale terrier owned by Jason Powell from Cwmdran, Wales, won the terrier category.

The family dog show featured a range of categories including the waggiest tail, best tricks and catch the sausage.
