Due to the situation with COVID 19 we have had to cancel our ever-popular Dog Show and our Fun Day which was scheduled to be held at Ashton Court 6th September. However, we are thrilled to announce that we are instead hosting an Online Pet Show meaning you and your pets can take part from the comfort of your own homes! There are lots of original classes for all different species of animals and every penny raised will help rescues waiting to find their forever home at Holly Hedge, so we hope to see all of your beloved pets taking part!

£2 per entry/photo, with the chance to win amazing prizes for 1st and 2nd place, all 3rd place runners up receive a rosette and certificate. To see the prizes click here!

Entries open from 6pm on Wednesday 5th August until August 31st at 10pm, winners of All Creatures Great and Small will be announced on the 4th September, Cat winners on the 5th September and winners of the Dog Classes 6th September! Once we have processed the entries, we will be sending them all off to our judges. When they have made the tough decisions, we will contact all the winners directly and announce them on Facebook and our website. They may need a hand deciding so please Click Attending for The Big Weekend In on Facebook!

Dog Show Classes

Always the hardest category to judge, because every rescue is a life saved, but we want to see your beautiful, silly, funny dogs! You don’t have to have rescued from Holly Hedge to enter this category, so if you want to show the world your amazing rescue here’s your chance!

Like a good wine, beauty comes with age, and we want to see those grey muzzles and beautiful wise faces! Like the tortoise and the hare, slow and steady can win the race to your heart!

Snaggle tooth? Lopsided grin? Scraggly ears or missing an eye? We want to celebrate all the things that put people off in a tinder bio but make your wonderfully wonky dog even more special. Read more about the wonderful work Five Rivers Child Care do here.

Has someone been helping you a lot whilst you’re working from home? Maybe they’ve been telling the printer off when it’s clearly attacking you, or been taking care of the kids whilst you have just five minutes peace. It could be that they’re so happy to be spending so much time with you that just by looking at them they brighten your whole day up. We want to see the dogs that have made being at home so much better.

You’ve explained the two-metre rule over and over, but are still waking up with your furry friend two inches from your face! Show us your adorable space invaders who have no concept of what social distancing means.

An upside-down face is when a dog lies down on their back and then looks up at you with a goofy, chinny grin, lips fallen back revealing those pearly whites. When you say “what on earth are you like?” their tail thuds on the sofa because they know they’re being silly.

Some dogs are just devastatingly gorgeous, so much so that every photo could be used as a cover of a magazine! We want to see the Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and of dogs
