Wandsworth Council’s Battersea Park Dog 2019
Thank you for coming to Wandsworth Council’s Battersea Park Dog Show
A record-breaking number of dog owners entered their pet for the Battersea Park Dog Show on Sunday (June 23), raising £831 for the Friends of Battersea Park.
The Mayor of Wandsworth Cllr Jane Cooper opened the popular event which attracted over 6,000 visitors, a record number for the dog show which has been running for 24 years.
The day was part of the borough’s Armed Forces Day Celebrations, and the Special Armed Forces supported one of the classes – best marching dog. The overall winner of the show was Flora – a five-year-old Akita owned by Robert Stuhldreer.
Councillor Steffi Sutters, cabinet member for community services and open spaces: “I am delighted that the Love Parks campaign has seen so many of our residents enjoy an array of events over successive weekends. And whilst we have held a dog show in previous years, this year we had so many more extremely well behaved and well groomed, entrants. There is still more to come this weekend so please do join in the fun.”
As well as the dog show, crowds enjoyed funfair rides, stalls by Friends of Battersea Park, Voo Vets and Doggy De-Stress plus delicious food and drink trucks. In support of Armed Forces Day, The London Royal Marine Reserves and Tooting and Balham Sea Cadets provided interactive stalls to raise awareness of the work they do and how to take part.
The event is delivered by Wandsworth Council’s Wandsworth Parks and Events Police Service, in support of Armed Forces Day. The Parks and Events Police are responsible for the routine patrolling of the parks, commons and open spaces within Wandsworth; the enforcement of byelaws, Dog Control Orders and other park regulations; and the policing of events.
