Canines cantered through Caledonian Park at Scruffs, an event offering training, micro-chipping and general fun and games for dog owners.

Four-legged Islingtonians took part in activities such as agility courses and a waggliest tail contest, while parks patrol officers were on hand with dog control advice.

Cllr Rakhia Ismail, Islington Council’s executive member for sustainability said: “Our popular Scruffs dog shows are a fun day out and a great opportunity to promote responsible dog ownership so all residents can enjoy our parks and open spaces.”
