Get set for a day of barking good fun

Have your say

The annual RSPCA Dog Day afternoon will take place tomorrow from 12.30pm.

The charity will offer eight classes at Shibden Park, Halifax. It is being run with the Shibden Park Rangers. Judges will be looking for the dog with the most appealing eyes, the cutest well-behaved puppy under 12 months, the best child handler, the dog who can perform the best trick and the dog the judge would most like to take home, plus the best fancy dress.

The entry fee is £1 per class.

A have-a-go agility course will be open throughout the afternoon at just £1 a go or visitors can try the Hot Dog Sausage Run.

Other attractions include the dippy duck game and a charity shop table.
