Saturday September the 28th 2013 The Dumfries and Galloway Canine rescue Branch held their first ever Doggy Olympics at Barstobrick Ringford, near Castle Douglas . DGWGO only found out about this wonderful event this morning , from one of our Advertisers , Cariol King Dog walker ! So We managed to get along for a wee look to see what it was all about ! On arrival at Barstobrick I found out that :-
There were 5 zones you and your dog could take part in , and up to 15 events for the dogs and owners to enter .
Each zone had 3 different competitions , and something for all types of dogs and owners of all ages . There was something for all skill levels .
I was amazed when I arrived to see hundreds of people and dogs , there were dogs of all breeds , sizes types and ages and they all seemed to be having the time of their lives ! I watched Dogs of all skill level’s trying different events , and it was wonderful to see Dogs and their owners laughing at the mistakes being made , it was a really fun atmosphere , and owners of all ages were taking part , from young kids to the elderly !
Barstobrick was the perfect place for the event ,with outdoor and indoor arena ‘s venue set in a beautiful area on the red kite trail. It has a restaurant, ample parking and excellent walks.
Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre who held the event was opened in March 2003.The purpose of the charity is to rescue, care for and rehome stray and unwanted dogs. www.caninerescue.co.uk www.twitter.com/dgcrc www.youtube.com/DGCanineRescue

The Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue Centre was set up by a group of local people in August 2001 in the hope of keeping a local rescue going when a national charity announced its intention to leave.
The charity raises funds through subscriptions, donations, sales from its charity shops in Dumfries, Dalbeattie, Annan and Newton Stewart and other fund raising events.
If you are interested in supporting them in anyway or Possibly rehoming a rescue dog you can contact them on the phone
