MORE than 130 dog owners and their pets descended on Alexandra Park on Monday (August 26) for the annual Companion Dog Show.
The event, which is now in its 11th year, Is organised by Hastings, St Leonards and East Sussex Canine Society.
Dogs of all shapes and sizes competed in the many categories available in the show.
Jean McGlashan, the society’s honorary secretary, said: “We had more than 130 dogs and their owners come out to enjoy a lovely day in the park and to strut their stuff.
“Most of the exhibitors were from Hastings, St Leonards and surrounding areas with others travelling from as far as Hawkhurst, Portslade, Brighton, Eastbourne, Polegate and Folkestone.
“For quite a few of the exhibitors it was the first time that they had entered a dog show and from the feedback received they had obviously enjoyed their day. It is hoped that we shall see them again next year.”
