DOGS will be looking glamorous at a Taunton show next month thanks to Monkton Elm Garden & Pet Centre.
The centre has donated prize money and rosettes for the open stakes categories at the Taunton & District Canine Association Dog Show on January 4 and 5.
Liz Woodward, pet centre manager, said: “We’re thrilled to be sponsoring the open stakes at the show.
"We have donated prize money and rosettes to the value of £200 for the dogs that place from first to sixth.
“This is the first time we have sponsored the show and it’s great to get involved with a community event.
“We’re really looking forward to seeing the show and all of the wonderful dogs entering.”
The Taunton & District Canine Association was re-established in 1960 after hosting dog shows in pre-war years.
According to records it was a championship show during this time.
The Association hosts two shows per year as well as offering training in ringcraft and training towards the Kennel Club Good Citizen Awards.
Association secretary Jackie Norris said: “We would like to say thank you to for the generous gesture in sponsoring the classes with prize money and rosettes.
“It is really wonderful to have the support from a business in the community.”
The show takes place at Wellsprings Leisure Centre on Cheddon Road.
