The standout pooches and owners will receive a rosette and will win a £25 gift card.

Oliver Wren, centre director at Castle Quay Shopping Centre, said: “We’re proud to be a dog friendly leisure and retail destination in Oxfordshire, so we wanted to shout about this and put on an event that celebrates everything that is so special about dogs.

"We’re hoping to see dogs dressed in their very best outfits, ready to win some awards. It’s also an opportunity for dog owners to ask some burning questions to our dog experts and trainers. If you love dogs, this is the event for you!”
