DogFest, the UK’s biggest and best day out for dogs, their families and animal lovers of all ages is back. Now entering its sixth year, DogFest will take place in the grounds of three stunning stately homes: Knebworth House in Hertfordshire (11-12 May), Tatton Park in Cheshire (15-16 June) and Ashton Court Estate in Bristol (22-23 June).
The events once again promise a packed schedule of celebrity appearances and expert talks, dog displays, educational sessions and fun, have-a-go activities. Everything is geared towards celebrating the amazing bond between dogs and people and promoting animal welfare.
Special guests include celecrity vet Noel Fitzpatrick and presenter Clare Balding.
Clare Balding is set to headline on the main stage with anecdotes from her life – and those of her four-legged friends. Clare will lead the Great Dog Walk where she’ll chat to people all around the course (it has 2K and 4K routes). She’ll also award prizes for DogFest’s acclaimed ‘Fun Dog Show’.
TV’s Supervet, Professor Noel Fitzpatrick will front a special interactive feature for younger visitors. The world-leading orthopaedic-neuro veterinary surgeon will also open The Great Dog Walk. He’ll also deliver a special, insightful talk for fans purchasing VIP tickets.
