Devon's Dog Event of the Year


Saunton Sands Beach, North Devon

Next event - May 2020

Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances there will be no Paws On The Beach event in 2019

DHK's Paws on the Beach is an exciting annual event for dogs and their owners, which takes place on Saunton Beach in North Devon during the month of May.

Throughout the day there will be a huge selection of paw-some activities to entertain both dogs and their owners, including a family fun dog show, 'The Big Sit' world record attempt, Doggy Dash competition, have-a-go agility and new for this year - our demonstration ring showcasing the amazing talents of our canine friends. Plus, the only doggy surfing event in the UK with specially trained dogs from the Paws on Boards Surf School!


Organised by Dogs Helping Kids as their main annual fundraising event, Paws on the Beach hopes to raise money to help train a new intake of Certified School Dogs.
