A Huge Dog Festival Is Coming To The UK This September

A festival full of doggos? We'll be there!

From weddings to festivals, theatre shows and gigs, over the last few months, the majority of events across the UK have been cancelled or moved online.

But one festival that has been given the green light to go ahead is the annual Dogstival!

Yep, a doggy festival is on its way in September, and although in normal circumstances it would have taken place in May, organisers have managed to secure dates next month and we for one are very happy about it.

The festival will take place on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th September outdoors in the New Forest, at a new extra large venue with social distancing measures in place to keep visitors safe.

Not only will you and your pup be able to watch world class dog displays, there'll also be heaps of activities to get involved in, too.

If your pooch loves water, they can give the K9 Aquasports Pool a try. All they have to do is launch into the water after their favourite ball, which sounds like something most doggos would love!

There's also stand-up paddle boarding, a scent challenge and a range of agility games such as distraction alley, flyball, hoopers ring and lure racing.

And with so much going on, your pup might need a little lie down from all the excitement. If so, they can relax in the Happy Hound Chill Out Den - perfect for a nap or a refuel.

There'll also be places for you to refuel too, with food and drink stands as well as a selection of shops selling treats and accessories for dogs and owners alike!

The Dogstival even has a vintage fairground, live music and a Doggy Chapel (just in case your pooch meets the love of his/her life) as well as a Dog House Pub for a knees up afterwards.

It certainly seems they've got everything covered!

As well as a huge selection of activities, TV vet Scott Miller (known for his regular appearances on This Morning) will also be on hand, sharing tips and advice about your fur babies.

Scott will be covering a range of demonstrations and talks and will also be joined by by guests from the world of canine healthcare and nutrition such as surgeon Dr Michael Hamilton.

So not only will it be a mega fun weekend, but you'll also leave with some fab health and wellbeing tips too.

Dogstival tickets are priced at £13.90 for adults and £8 for children (aged six to 16). Kids under the age of six can enter for free and family tickets (two adults and two children) are priced from £36.

Tickets must be purchased in advance and you can snap yours up here. If you want to make your pooch the happiest pup in the world, you know what to do!
