Voted by the Star newspaper as one of the best dog friendly festivals in the UK for 2019 and nominated for Dog friendly awards best day out, this fun packed music festival is like no other. With Channel 5 filming at the event in 2019 and national newspapers giving us great recognition, we know 2020 will be ever bigger and better and want you to celebrate with us.

2020 will bring you more shops so you can treat your dog or yourself to top of the range accessories and bling. Treat stalls, dog toy pop up shops and an array of harnesses to choose from as well as doggy lotions and potions that you won’t find on the high street plus, many more, including a new producer section with all the human treats you could wish for, you will be spoilt for choice.

We have lots of stalls where you can get expert advice on training, obedience, how to foster/adopt a puppy as well as free doggy MOT’s. We have a host of specialists waiting just for you and your dog.

Our live from Dog Lovers stage has some of the UK’s best tribute bands performing alongside a full line up of non-stop music across the weekend hosted by our very own Dog Lovers compere, so as the sun goes down you can grab a drink and let your hair down.

The food and drink flows all over the weekend with our top award-winning food creations that we hand pick from the best food events in the County and the fabulous Gin Brothers will be returning for a third year to serve you the very best cocktails to go with the very best foods on offer.

As always, we have a fun packed adventure for the dogs with agility, scurry run, obedience training, lure chasing, steeplechase, hide and seek, doggie dip, scent work plus a few more surprises for 2020. Don’t forget we also have K9 Aqua sport joining us again to bring you the very best in Dock diving (open to all dogs over 6 months.) Who doesn’t love a soggy doggy?

The main arena will host again some amazing entertainment throughout the day on both days so you can grab a ringside seat and watch and learn some amazing things. There will even be an opportunity if you fancy it to get in the ring yourself and be hands on.

And not forgetting the Fun Dog Show which will be running all day on both days. We have the most fabulous categories for you including Best in Show on both days.
