VIDEO: Dozens of dogs take part in Leeds Pooch Parade

Sunday saw around a hundred dog owners and their pooches taking part in a sponsored 1.5km dog walk at Roundhay Park in aid of charity.

The event was organised by Basik, a charity which works to provide education to children in Kenya living in poverty.

Dog walkers bought raffle tickets, decorated cupcakes and treat bags for their pups, helping to raise £319.80 for the cause.

Around a hundred people attended the event, bringing dogs of all shapes and sizes.

From Pugs to Huskeys, Labradors to Dalmations, dogs of all breeds could be seen enjoying the sunshine as they walked through the park.

While most of the attendees were dog owners, there were also plenty of spectators handing out treats and doing some general dogspotting.
