Helensburgh’s perfect pooches were awarded for their talents and good behaviour at Loch Lomond Shores' latest fun family event.

The Top Dogs festival allowed dog owners to enter their four-legged friends into the dog show where there were awards for lots of different categories, including most handsome, best condition, puppy, veteran and more.

There was also a specialist doggie market offering services and unique treats.

Part of the cash – over £400 - raised from entry fees will go towards the SSPCA’s animal rescue centre at Milton in Dumbarton and to the Loch Lomond Rescue Boat.

Audrey Calder from Loch Lomond Shores said: "We were delighted to welcome lots of our four-legged friends to Loch Lomond shores on Saturday for our Top Dogs event.
