Emmy and I are really looking forward to seeing so many dogs of all shapes and sizes flying the flag for Yorkshire.

As someone who lives and works in the North Yorkshire community, I understand the difference organisations like Herriot Hospice Homecare and Saint Michael’s make to local families, and would urge people taking part to get behind these very special charities.

The Yorkshire Vet team is really excited to be involved in the event, which is set to be a perfect day out for the whole family, with the pets we are so passionate about front and centre.
