Organiser Sean McDougall, from the Tatyoon Football Club, said the day attracted about 10 dogs for the jumping competition, while a further four canines contested the small dog race.

In a reversal of last year's placings, Mr Brady's dog Shanti won the main event by clearing a height of 2.20 metres.

Finishing runner-up was 2013 winner Troy Smith with his dog Shadow.

In the day's other highlight, the Carter family's dashing dog Roxy claimed back-to-back titles in the 100 metre sprint.

Mr McDougall said the Dog Jumps and Family Day also included a new competition, best dressed.

"The McKay family dressed their dog up in a tennis skirt, so it won the best dressed," he said.

"Overall numbers were just down a little bit on last year, I guess a few people had other commitments, but it was still a fair crowd and everyone that was there had a fun day.

"We had a jumping castle there for the kids, so it was a good family day out."

Mr McDougal said the Tatyoon Football Club will look at continuing the event again next year with increased prize money.
