A fun-filled dog-friendly festival!

This September, join us at DogFest — a fun-filled dog-friendly festival! We’ll be at all three of their weekend festivals, each at stunning locations across the UK, and celebrating everything about our four-legged friends. 

DogsFest is the pawfect day out for dogs and dog-lovers, with doggy displays, expert advice, shopping, food, drink, music and lots of fun have-a-go activities for your pooch.

Our Dogs Trust Village will be a one-stop-shop to find out about our work and the dogs in our care, as well as how to get involved with volunteering, fostering and fundraising for us. At our rehoming garden you’ll be able to meet some of our former doggy residents, watch their parade, and hear happy stories about their forever homes. We’ll also be selling our branded leads, collars, bowls, poo bags and more.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Fun days

In previous years, we held our own Fun Days at our centres and nearby venues, which attracted thousands of visitors each year.  
For 2021 and into the future, we’ve made the difficult decision not to continue with these events. Instead, by partnering with DogFest and the Big Dog Walk, we can still offer you and your four-legged friends fun-filled days out, and a chance to support our work.

We’d like to thank everyone who has supported our Fun Days over the years and hope to see you at DogFest!

The Big Dog Walk

Taking part in a Big Dog Walk is a unique opportunity for dog owners and their families to walk together in some of the country’s most beautiful stately parks. You can choose between a 2k, 5k or 10k route, with staggered walk times for the comfort and safety of everyone taking part.
