Thatcham’s Nature Discovery Centre let the dogs out to raise money for the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust.

The playful pups took to obstacle courses and treasure trails and a spot of sport with Kennet Flyball on Sunday, October 24.

Dogs loved the flyball relay race which saw them jump hurdles, retrieve balls, and most importantly, waggle tails.

The four-legged athletes performed well and provided great entertainment for all those who watched.

The flyball was in aid of Border Collie Spot Rescue, a charity based in Berkshire.

Kennet Flyball has taken in dogs from it and donated £50 towards the cause.

Kennet Flyball founder member and treasurer Andrea Sheperd said: “It was good fun but it was smaller because it was the first event.

"We still had quite a few people having a go."

She said that it may become an annual event with attendees enjoying both watching and partaking in the activities.

She added: “We like to support our local charities.”

There were also raffles and a dog craft market.
