Maidstone: Paws in the Park comes to the Kent Showground at Detling

By Angela Cole

Does your dog take the biscuit?

Bright eyes, bushy tails and wet noses will be the dress code for this weekend’s Paws in the Park show.

The two-day annual show devoted to all things dog saw more than 14,000 visitors on two legs through its gates last year – and countless more on four.

Now in its 11th year, the weekend held at the Kent Showground in Detling, near Maidstone, is packed with dog-related games and activities to try including flyball, search and rescue and agility.

There will also be arena displays and entertainment, plus the ever-popular Dash ‘n’ Splash, where dogs take to the water. Stand back if you’d prefer to stay dry!
