We’re wagging our tails to announce that we’re teaming up with DogFest this year as their official media partner. Join us and a community of fellow dog lovers as we celebrate our furry best friends in a festival of fun.
Where Is DogFest Taking Place?
Throughout September, this festival will be taking place at three stunning destinations across the UK. The lovely grounds of Knebworth House, Cirencester Park and Tatton Park will be opening their gates to the most doggylicious days on the calendar.
11-12th September- Dogfest South- Knebworth House- Hertfordshire
25-26th September- Dogfest North- Tatton Park- Cheshire
What Activities Are Taking Place?
These fun filled weekends will be playing host to a number of activities that you and your dog will love. Including dog shows, dramatic displays and have a go activities. Not to mention a vast array of delicious food, drink and great music.
The Main Arena of the festival will be showcasing back-to-back entertainment. This includes jaw dropping displays from the UK’s most skilled dog display teams. Prepare to have your mind blown by these talented animals. Stunts include leaping through rings of fire, hurtling down ziplines and much more.
There are also many opportunities for you and your own pooch to get involved in activities. Climb over hay bales, crawl under scramble nets, zig zag around poles and dart through tunnels on the ultimate Dogstacle course. Alternatively, test your dog in a game of hide and seek, ultimate frisbee, hale bale jumping and the Dogfest Agility Course.
If it’s more of a chill time you fancy, why not roll out a blanket and settle down to an afternoon of pawsome festival tunes. All accompanied by artisan food and drink stalls including a gin-tastic and prosecco bar.
To top off your dog’s best day out ever you can even enter them into the Fun Dog Show and see them compete for titles such as Best in Show, Most Fabulous or Best Rescue to name but a few. Pull up a hay bale and enjoy!
As if all of that wasn’t enough, delight your dog further by taking part in the Big Dog Walk, sponsored by Bought By Many, pick between a 2K or 4K route around the various park’s stunning grounds and discover fun games and surprises along the way.
There is also the chance to get cutting edge, expert advice as Dogfest prides itself on offering the latest tips and insights from guest experts. Topics include but are not limited to animal health and welfare, dietary advice, behavioural psychology and new ownership during the pandemic.
If you do happen to be the proud owner of a pandemic puppy, enroll them into Dogfest’s Puppy Academy. Socialisation at an early stage is crucial to the well-being and development of puppies. Puppy Academy is where young dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes can meet other youngsters in a friendly and relaxed environment. It’s fun for the dogs but also a perfect opportunity for new owners to get tips and advice and have any questions they have answered by experts.
