Pooch Picnic Peppertree Wines - August 13

Save a spot for your furry best friend on the picnic rug for the annual Pepper Tree Wines Pooch Picnic on Sunday 13th August 2017 with a gold coin entry donation to Dog Rescue Newcastle.

Taking place on the Pepper Tree grounds, the pooch picnic is the perfect family day out with something for everyone including live music, jumping castle for the kids, pet pampering stalls and dog competitions.

Renowned dog trainer Kelly Gill and her team of talented Border Collies, the Wonderdogs will perform their popular trick shows and training demonstrations.

According to Pepper Tree Wines Marketing Manager, Michelle Preece, the pooch picnic was created six years ago as an extension of the Pepper Tree Pet Club and as a way of raising much needed funds for local not-for-profit animal rescue organisations.

Dog Rescue Newcastle is a volunteer organisation committed to the rescue of abandoned, neglected or abused companion animals. They ensure rescue dogs and cats are placed into loving foster homes where they receive the love and attention they deserve until a permanent home is found.

The Pooch Picnic is a way for us to celebrate all our four legged friends" Michelle said.
