Fun in the Sun at DogFest 2017!
DogFest is the ultimate dog’s day out for dogs and dog lovers this June! Here is a recap of some of the reasons you should be coming on down this summer…
Fun in the Sun!
There are now even more have-a-go activities for your dog to try this year at DogFest! Last year’s favourites like Dog Diving, to keep your pup cool in the sun, and Temptation Alley return bigger and better than ever, as well as the amazing Hay Bale Race and the Have-A-Go Agility Ring! Brand new for this year we also have the Big Dog Dig, where your pup will be able to dig its way to prizes and treats! As well as all these, we also have the extremely popular School 4 Dogs, where you can learn how to transform your dog from a disobient pupil to teacher’s pet! With all this and even more, DogFest is definitely going to be the ultimate dog’s summer festival!
Join the Great Dog Walk
Twice a day, Noel Fitzpatrick will start the Big Tick Great Dog Walk – which is your opportunity to explore the magnificent grounds of Arley Hall and Knebworth House in the sunshine! We know there is nothing dog’s love more than ‘walkies’ making it the perfect opportunity to get out and about with your dog over the weekend. Brand new for 2017, we are also offering a Sunday morning Doggy Dash, a 5km run around the beautiful grounds!
Watch amazing VIPs (Very Important Pooches) and other fantastic performances
We are being joined this year by some Very Important Pooches, including working police dogs who will be demonstrating their fantastic skills! There will also be amazing agility performances by dog display teams where you and your dog can learn from the best! As well as these you can also watch hilarious moments from all the have-a-go activities and see exhilarating races like Flyball!
Shop until you drop!
Enjoy the festival atmosphere with gourmet food stalls and some unique shopping where you can treat your four-legged friend to their summer wardrobe! With over 150 stalls and stands to choose between, you’ll be spoilt for choice when choosing goodies for your pampered pooch!

An unmissable event over the DogFest weekend and a highlight of the show is the sensational Noel Fitzpatrick Live! The show will be returning to the Super Stage to deliver his inspirational talk that has every member of the family captivated. Come and hear the stories behind the filming of the Supervet, as well as the highs and lows of working in a veterinary practice.
