Fund raising and other activities

 

We have great fun organising various community dog events each year, and over the years have raised thousands of pounds for some very wonderful charities who train dogs to support humans in various ways.

Early this year, we had the pleasure of naming a Canine Partner’s puppy in recognition of the money raised for that wonderful charity. She is gorgeous girl called Hamble!

2018 Barking Bonanza was a lovely day (if cold!), which raised £1200 to the benefit of the 9 charities who attended. The order of prizes were drawn out of the hat by Iwan Thomas MBE, Olympic Silver Medallist, Commonwealth and European 400 m champion, with the top four prizes going to Medical Detection Dogs, PDSA, Second Chance and Blue Cross.  Great fun was had in the main ring, with  Kelly Simms, the 2018 British all-around gymnastchampion helping with the judging. Fastest Recall was won by Poppy!

Our next events will be supporting the RSPCA Ark in August with fun dog show, and our annual Hamble show in September.

We have great fun organising various community dog events each year, and over the years have raised thousands of pounds for some very wonderful charities, some who train dogs to support humans in various ways (including Canine Partners, Medical Detection Dogs and Hounds for Heroes),  some deal with dog welfare and others are local Hamble charities.

Hamble Hounders have a host of additional activities to join in throughout the year.

The Hamble Hounds Display Team has a short routine showing pet dogs walking nicely, lots of nice self-control work, waits, distance downs, good recalls and jumping through hoops, all with waggy tails and a great sense of occasion.

The dogs involved are so cool, yet some have had real problems in the past. It’s a good testament to how dogs can change given time, guidance and patience.

The humans involved are less cool than the dogs, but manage to keep a smile on their face throughout (never ask Annette about the time Rafferty decided to leave the display to visit the Temptation Ally, twice!!).

We will do displays for any event where all the money goes to a registered charity as long as we can meet the date and like the charity! Please ask if you think we can help you.
