Air Ambulance's fun-filled Heli Hounds event returns this Autumn 

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance's (EHAAT) popular Autumn Heli Hounds event is back this year, bigger and better than ever.

Dogs – and their owners – can now register for the event on October 14th. Organisers have mapped out a scenic new route starting from the Charity's Hertfordshire fundraising office at Church End, Little Hadham.

This year's Heli Hounds promises to be the best yet, says EHAAT.

As well as the dog walk, there will be shows, a pop-up photo booth for dogs, gun dog demonstrations, games and agility tests for you and your pooches to enjoy.

There will also be a dog show with a range of classes to enter. Pedigree classes will include; Terrier & Hound, Gundog, Toy & Utility and Working & Pastoral. 

On top of this, the event will feature novelty classes including Best Puppy, Best Veteran, Best Rescue and Fancy Dress.

The charity are also excited to welcome on the walk TV dog behaviourist Dima Yeremenko, who has worked with the likes of Paul O'Grady. Dima will also be doing demonstrations and giving out training tips which are not to be missed!

EHAAT Events Manager Fay Boissieux said: 'We know how much our dog-owning supporters love our Heli Hounds events, so we have been working hard to make sure this Autumn's event will be better than ever.

'As well as a brand new route to enjoy, there will be lots of attractions and activities to keep you and your dog entertained. Whether you have got a young pedigree or an ageing mongrel, there will be something for everyone.

'We are really grateful to our headline sponsor Fin & Fur and our event sponsors Bishops Stortford Veterinary Hospital and David Watson Transport for helping to make the event a success.'

The cost of registering for the walk is £5 per dog, while each class entered in the dog show in £1.50.
