Whitley Wonders Flyball team took part in a mass Christmas dog walk on the beach before enjoying a drink at the Rendezvous Cafe.
Members of the team come from Blyth Valley, North Tyneside and Newcastle.
Both dogs and their owners are now taking a well earned winter break from competing at a national level but training will recommence mid January 2014.
Training takes place on Sundays at Whitley High School at 10.45am for starter dogs and 11.30am for division dogs.
Call secretary Lesley Snowdon on 07536 014201 for more information.
