Hair by JFK is a dog friendly salon and have been huge supporters of the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home charity for over 10 years, supporting the charity in any way they can.
The Charity Event
On Sunday 19th August furry friends came together to take part in Hair by JFK’s ‘Tough Dugger’ fun agility course at the Bruntsfield Links, just across the road from their salon on 1 Bruntsfield Place. On the day over twenty adorable dogs, all shapes and sizes rounded up and individually ran around Hair by JFK’s agility course with their owners. Every contestant who took part was timed and a prize was given to the dog that was fastest to complete the course, where pups flew over hurdles, whipped around poles, and jumped through hoops.
Tough Dugger rosettes were presented to the top five fastest dogs and rosettes and doggy beer and crisps sets donated by House of Hound were provided to dogs who won the ‘special categories’, which included dog with the waggiest tale, most appealing eyes, most handsome chap, prettiest girl and most well groomed.
All participants were also treated to goodie bags kindly donated by Dofos Pet Shop in Edinburgh, and the final donation amount of around £200 was given to the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home from Hair by JFK.
A Great Success
Director of Hair by JFK, Karen Brown, commented, “This was the second year running of our Tough Dugger event to raise awareness and funds for the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, a charity we regularly work with and that is very close to our hearts at Hair by JFK. The event was a great success and we were thrilled that so many dog owners and their dogs from across the city attended to take part in the obstacle course and have some fun whilst raising awareness for the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home charity, whilst also promoting a great way to keep dogs active and healthy!
Bigger Than Last Year
We also had some great companies that helped us make our event even bigger than better than last year including Josee’s Happy Hounds and Happy Hound Canine Massage who we can’t thank enough for their support. Dofos also provided us with some incredible goodie bags and House of Hound provided us with some lovely prizes for the day.”
