During this very scary time, Reggie Ridgeback has decided to step up and send us a message each day – they can be helpful, funny, cheeky or constructive but they are all intended to be uplifting.  If you have any questions for Reggie, let us know and we’ll see if we can get him to answer them.  He started from day 9 of the Corona Lockdown so click the list below to hear what our golden boy has to say

We promised a big announcement to come in January and here it is ……..

A Special Guest Judge for our 2020 Rescue Funday:

JULIAN NORTON (aka The Yorkshire Vet), has kindly agreed to attend and be our judge for the day!!!! So, if you would like to meet Julian in person and, potentially, be able to say that “YOUR DOG was the one the Judge would most like to take home”, then you better be in it to win it!

Our show will take place in Malton, North Yorkshire, on Sunday 13th September 2020 – entry to the show itself is free, but classes and games are chargeable on the day with each dog entered into the show getting his or her own number on a special Funday Rescue keyring to keep 😉

We will have stalls, merchandise, refreshments and a licensed bar. To keep both you, the kids and your dogs entertained, we will also be hosting lots of fun classes and activities such as our ever popular flat and hay-bale scurries, egg and spoon race for dog & handler teams, fastest sausage eater competition (for the dog, not you!), temptation alley, agility demonstration and Have-A-Go agility. Inter-spaced with all the fun and games throughout the day, we will also be running a companion show with classes including: best puppy, best rescue, most beautiful eyes, prettiest bitch, most handsome dog, best ridge and of course the coveted class of “the dog the judge would most like to take home”, for which The Yorkshire Vet will be our Judge for the day.

At the end of the day, all games and show class winners will come into the main ring and compete for BEST IN SHOW 2020.

So please come along one and all – bring your gazebos, chairs and picnic baskets. We’d love to see as many of you there as possible – all breeds are welcome and all proceeds will go directly to Ridgeback Rescue to help us continue the support and rescue work we undertake each year.

If you are unable to come but would like to sponsor one of our classes or donate a prize for the raffle, we’d love to hear from you either on messenger or email at

Thank you for your support. We’re gunna have a ball!
