Plenty of pet owners brought their pooches along to the inaugural Deepings Dog Show.

More than 100 animals were entered into the show in Jubilee Park in Deeping St James on Sunday.

Dogs and their owners travelled from as far away as London to take part and enter one of 10 categories.

Deepings darts legend Martin “Woflie” Adams opened the event and radio presenter Daphne Ledward handed out the prizes.

And judges from Paw Print Puppy Training and The Dog House training academy in Market Deeping had their work cut out picking the winners.

Deepings Most Talented Dog was tiny terrier Mac Purdy, who wowed the crowds with his skateboarding skills. As a puppy Mac had been left with life-threatening injuries after being attacked by another dog but he recovered well to take the crown.

Best in Show went to 14 year old mongrel Tess from Crowson Way, Deeping St James. Best Rescue Dog, sponsored by Linfords chip shop, went to Jessie, seven, also of Deeping St James.

Organisers hope to make the show an annual event.
