Bow Wows – Doggy Fun Day 2017

Co-founder Karen, runs Bow Wows @ No 7 at Port Solent and has just hosted the second successful “Doggy Fun Day”, raising over £800 in aid of Hounds For Heroes.

Read more below about how the day went and why Karen & the Bow Wows team decided to support the charity!


In early 2016, I was lucky enough to meet Allen when he came into Bow Wows at No 7.


We had a chat and he told me all about Hounds For Heroes, leaving me with his card.


A couple of months later I wanted to organise a dog show and decided that it would be a fab idea to do it in support of Hounds for Heroes….! Bow Wows held the first Doggie Fun Day in July 2016, which was an overwhelming success. Allen and the rest of the Hounds For Heroes team attended, and we had an amazing day, with all the proceeds going to the charity.


In August 2016, Bow Wows ran a competition in the shop looking to create a calendar with our favourite furry friend visitors. The Hounds for Heroes team kindly picked their 12 favourites out of the semi finalists (someone had to do it and I’m glad it wasn’t me!) and the winners featured in our Bow Wows 2017 calendar. For every calendar we sold £1 was donated to Hounds For Heroes.


Fast forward to July 2017, we have just had our second Doggy Fun Day, which again was a woofing success! 147 furry friends strutted their stuff, and took part in the show categories! With more attending to visit our traders, agility display and take part in all of the other fund-raising activities.


Hounds for Heroes will remain our partnered charity. It is such a worthwhile cause run by amazing people providing amazing dogs who make such an amazing difference to people’s lives.
