The Only 'WAGS' Worth Mentioning!

Thursday, 23 August 2018 10:14

The Edinburgh 'Tough Dugger' event took place for the second year last weekend, with contestants battling it out for top prizes in highly specialised categories including waggiest tale, most appealing eyes, most handsome chap, prettiest girl and best-groomed.

Thanks to the commitment and kindness of the team at Hair by JFK salon in the Scottish capital,  the ‘Tough Dugger’ agility course was yet another fun and engaging way in which this dog-friendly, animal-loving salon could add to its 10-year support of the local Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home.

On the day over twenty adorable dogs, all shapes and sizes rounded up and individually ran around Hair by JFK’s agility course with their owners. Every contestant who took part was timed and a prize was given to the dog that was fastest to complete the course, where pups flew over hurdles, whipped around poles, and jumped through hoops. All participants were also treated to goodie bags kindly donated by Dofos Pet Shop in Edinburgh, and the final donation amount of around £200 was given to the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home from Hair by JFK. 

Director of Hair by JFK, Karen Brown, commented: “This was the second year running of our Tough Dugger event to raise awareness and funds for the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, a charity we regularly work with and that is very close to our hearts at Hair by JFK. The event was a great success and we were thrilled that so many dog owners and their dogs from across the city attended to take part in the obstacle course and have some fun whilst raising awareness for the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home charity, whilst also promoting a great way to keep dogs active and healthy! We also had some great companies that helped us make our event even bigger than better than last year including Josee’s Happy Hounds and Happy Hound Canine Massage who we can’t thank enough for their support. Dofos also provided us with some incredible goodie bags and House of Hound provided us with some lovely prizes for the day.”
