The Ashover Show

Top Lodge were very pleased to be invited to entertain at Ashover Show in Derbyshire for the second year running.

Following a wet start to the day, the sun burst through mid-morning to give the crowds and the performers a wonderful day out in one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

Baby Erin opened the Trio's performance by demonstrating how the dogs are trained and how the moves are taught.

The other dogs came in too and showed some of their moves and the training techniques. This is Hamish demonstrating a nice high jump.

The dancing dogs gathered a huge and appreciative audience.

Tipp performing his Freestyle Routine to Queen's 'Seaside Rendezvous'.

Kath and Spice entertaining with their Crufts winning routine 'If I Only Had a Brain'.

Karen and Kes impersonating Sally Bowles in Cabaret!

Lesley and Angus 'There is Nothing Like a Dame'.

And Kath with Amber swaying their way through Dean Martin's 'Sway'.

A high jumping Angus performing to 'The Beautiful Briny'.

Karen and Fly showing Heelwork To Music to 'Roxie' from the musical 'Chicago'.

Flying Spice performing to 'Those Magnificent Men...'.

After the demonstrations, the children in the audience were invited into the ring to compete against Fly in a game of 'Beat The Dog'.
Karen and Fly would demonstrate a move...

- And then the children had to try if they could perform it faster than her.
Of course everyone who knows Fly will realise that no one can perform a move faster than her! :oD

There was time to watch the Companion Dog Show too...

And for little Erin to get around and experience the atmosphere. It was great socialisation.
