The bright sunshine attracted over 80 dogs of different breeds and ages.

Novelty classes included Most Handsome Dog, Best Local Dog and the popular Dog with the Waggiest Tail.

This year judging the novelty classes was Friends of Canine Partners a charity that train guide and alert dogs, and Amber and Ellie from the garden centre judged Prettiest Bitch and Best Rescue.

The day ended with the announcement of Best in Show which saw Lexi, a Cocker Spaniel winning in the pedigree class and Woody, a large crossbreed winning the novelty class.

Spectators were treated to a display by Canine Partners who showed the brilliant work they do training assistance dogs.

The day was branded a success by organisers after raising £825 for Canine Partners.

Milton Ernest Garden Centre looks forward to welcoming all Bedfordshire dogs again next year.
