The cameras were out as dogs rocked up in full on festive regalia for the March Dog Training Club Christmas party.
The event included a cheque presentation for £1,200 to East Anglian Air Ambulance, raised from a sponsored dog walk earlier in the year.
The evening started with a fancy dress parade judged by guests from Amical Veterinary Centre, Laura and Carly.
This was followed by a quick paws for thought before heading into games for dogs and owners with organisers hailing it as lots of fun.
Pat Winfield said; “All the dogs behaved themselves and the owners were quite good too!
“The benefits of training are certainly highlighted when so many dogs are in a room together and there are no problems.
“We were visited by Jane and Shaun from the East Anglian Air Ambulance and were pleased to present them with a cheque for £1,200 which was raised by club members at our annual sponsored walk in September.
“Dogs and owners in our later classes do tests just before Christmas and awards were given to the winners in various classes as well as some special awards for people who had impressed us with their achievements during the year.!
