Dogs are always a popular attraction at the Fair. As well as displays and terrier racing in the main ring there are gundog demonstrations, competitions and terrier show, and the scurry which is open to everyone (and their dog). Dog bags are available around the site, kindly provided by Perth and Kinross Council.

Dogs are welcome at the Fair and if you would like to leave your dog for a while in safe surroundings, please make use of our DOG CRECHE which is situated by the Main Entrance.
