Bring your Hound to the Ground for Support Dogs

On Saturday April 28, we’re encouraging dog-lovers to ‘bring your hounds to the ground’ as Maltby Main football club attempts to set a new record for the most dogs attending a non-league football match.

The South Yorkshire club want as many dog-owning football fans to turn up with their pooches to watch their final game of the season against Pontefract Colliery FC, on what is officially designated  Non-League Dog Day.

On Saturday April 28, we’re encouraging dog-lovers to ‘bring your hounds to the ground’ as Maltby Main football club attempts to set a new record for the most dogs attending a non-league football match.

The South Yorkshire club want as many dog-owning football fans to turn up with their pooches to watch their final game of the season against Pontefract Colliery FC, on what is officially designated  Non-League Dog Day.

It’s back… following its success in 2016 and 2017, the much talked-about Asda Foundation Sheffield 10K returns on Sunday 23rd September 2018.

Thousands took part in 2017, and it’s set to be even bigger and better in 2018

This run takes in all the sites of the ‘Steel City’ – home of the Support Dogs training centre – along rivers and, occasionally, up hills.

Bring your best friend along to the world’s biggest dog walk! Last year over 30,000 dogs took part!

Suitable for all including pushchairs and wheelchairs there are four walks to choose from along the South Shields coastline for this free event. You can start anytime between 10.30 and 3pm and each person can bring up to 4 dogs along with them.

We have been chosen as a charity beneficiary of this amazing event and we are incredibly excited to be involved. We will be at the event itself so why not come and say hello!
