At the Woof Festival are, from left, Keith and Clare Martin with Toby, Ian McCully and Sally Searle with Millie, Mark Allanson with Rolo, and Dennis Bradbury with Brunella.
THE inaugural Woof Festival gave around 120 people a new leash of life as they strolled down Newport Quay on Sunday.
The day out was organised by Vectis Sunrise Rotary Club as a community event.
Pets at Home donated some treats for the canine friends.
Adrian Brewer, international chairman of the club, said: "It was a really good fun day out. I didn’t realise how many different breeds of dog there are. We have decided to make this an annual day out because there is not much going on between Christmas and New Year’s Day.
"We were complimented for making it a disabled-friendly course because it was flat and quite short. We even had a gentleman on a motorised scooter with his dog."
The dog walk raised around £100.
