Organised by Pup Up Cafe, the sausage-dog festivities were first held in Sheaf Street back in 2019.

It returned again in 2021, following on from the pandemic, and again proved a hit with pet owners.

Leeds United and England footballer Kalvin Phillips was also spotted at the event after bringing his own Dachshund along to play with the other pups.
