The aptly titled ‘Hounds On The Heath’ event was a star-studded affair attended by Kiss FM presenter Pandora Christie, model and former Love Island star Cally Jane Beech, actress Beatie Edney and her dog Billie, model Kirstie Brittain, ex-puppy farming dog Lucy The Rescue Cavalier, and Labour MP Kerry McCarthy, who is known for using her voice to raise animal welfare topics in Parliament.
The celebrities helped to judge seven categories held at the dog show including ‘Sweetest Staffie’, ‘Best Veteran’, ‘Dead Ringers’, ‘Best Looking Boy’ and ‘Most Gorgeous Girl’.

Former ‘Miss Great Britain’ winner Cally Jane Beech used her experience in beauty pageants and as an owner of three boy dogs to judge the ‘Best Looking Boy’ category.
Afterwards, Cally summed up the experience saying: “It was harder than judging beauty pageants but I chose my winner (pictured below) based on the fact he was overall gentle and well behaved. He was also cute and looked the part!”.
