Grantham doggy day care business to stage fun event
A thriving dog daycare business in Grantham is staging a fun dog show family fun day later this month.
Such has been the interest in the event, rather than have it at A Dog’s Life’s premises at 105 Hornsby Road, it will now held on Sunday, July 22, from 10am at the Croxton Kerrial Sports and Social Club.
The popular business was launched earlier this year by Leisa Lister, a 45-year-old former model and Miss Southsea, who once appeared aged 21 in TV’s Baywatch, and her husband Liam.
The couple, who live in Croxton Kerrial, created the business as a legacy for their children as Leisa has the serious lung disease emphysema, which may shorten her life considerably.
The Lister family are “mad on dogs”, which has helped their business receive top ratings on social media.
Liam said: “We were going to run an in-house show only but the interest grew beyond what our unit is capable of so we thought why not open it up and give back to the community and all who have supported us.”
The free entry event also has family amusements, hog roast, archery, stalls, the Royal British Legion and the French Bulldogs saviours rescue charities. Local businesses have sponsored the many fun dog show classes, providing rosettes and trophies. There will also be doggy paddling pools for the expected hot weather.
Liam added the event, set to be annual, promises fun for all the family and their pets.
