The Dogs Day Out show in York has been canceled as it will be too hot

A fundraiser was planned for Saturday 9th September for Dogs Day Out at Sugar Hill Farm, Stockton Lane, York.

The aim of the event was to raise money for the Brain Tumor Research Charity.

However, organizers True Pawtential Dog Training and Behavior said the event was canceled amid fears the weather might be too hot for dogs.

A Facebook post said temperatures could reach 30C in some places on Saturday, which is “unsafe for your dogs”.

The post added: “We would not run our regular classes in such temperatures, so it would not be right to expect you to bring your dogs in this heat.”

“We take the well-being of your dogs very seriously and while we are very disappointed, we hope you appreciate that we had your dogs’ well-being at heart when making this decision.”


“We plan to reorganize the event for spring next year and will provide further details as soon as we have them.”

“Thank you for your understanding. Please stay safe with your dogs this weekend.”

The Met Office says the heatwave in York will continue through the second half of the week. Temperatures are expected to reach 26°C on Friday, 27°C with sunshine on Saturday and cooling slightly to 25°C on Sunday.

The official heatwave criteria have been met across much of England and Wales, with temperatures likely to reach a high of around 32C in the south or southeast over the next few days, the Met Office said.

Steven Ramsdale, chief meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “While the highest temperatures are expected in the south, heatwave conditions are already in place across much of England and Wales, and parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland are expected to continue to experience unusually high temperatures.”

“An active tropical cyclone season in the North Atlantic has helped to strengthen the pattern over the North Atlantic by pushing the jet stream well to the north of the UK, allowing very warm air to be drawn northwards. It is a marked contrast to much of the meteorological summer, when the UK was on the northern side of the jet stream and experienced cooler air and more unsettled weather.”

Temperatures across York are expected to fall next week, with 22°C forecast for Monday, 19°C for Tuesday and 17°C for Wednesday. The Dogs Day Out show in York has been canceled as it will be too hot
