The event, which continues today from 9.30am-5pm, saw thousands of pets and their owners brave the rain for activities including a dog show, Easter bonnet competition and other games.

Among the games was the K9 Aqua team which saw dogs compete to see who could jump the furthest into a pool of water – adding to the unplanned for watery theme of the day.

Owners could also have a go at obedience classes, a scurry ball retrieval competition, and watch the experts on an agility course.

Matthew Upson, event organiser, said: “Considering the weather it has been unbelievable, just fantastic.

“When you think about how many people have rung up to ask if it is open there are still thousands of people who have come down, and we are so pleased. The show must go on, provided it is safe of course.

“In 20 years of doing events I’ve not had rain like this – we do this show around the country and people in Suffolk make this one of the best.

“The aqua team and Easter dress-up has been very popular, but my favourite part is just seeing families and their dogs walking around the show. There are so many events now where you cannot take dogs, but they are part of the family.”
