It’s great to be outside and to take your dog along to dog-friendly events – but what’s fun for you might not be fun for them.
Loud noises, busy crowed areas, other dogs or live stock can all be things that your dog could find stressful.
Just because it’s a country show doesn’t mean you have to take your dog.
If you do, and you’re sitting down enjoying a drink make sure the dog has space and water. One thing that can really stress a dog out is the constant worry someone will step on their tail.
