First held in the South of England in 2012, DogFest has grown in size and scope to become one of the highlights of the canine calendar. Taking place in early summer, the festival is now held in two locations as DogFest North and DogFest South and attracts around 50,000 visitors across two days. Previous festivals have been held at a variety of locations including Knebworth House, Loseley Park, Windsor Great Park and Arley Hall.
DogFest live experience
DogFest offers endless entertainment for dogs and dog owners alike. From have-a-go activities, such as dog diving, dog agility and hay bale racing, to informative talks and demonstrations from some of the world's leading dog experts, festival goers and their four-legged friends are sure to enjoy a fun-filled day out.
One of the highlights of the show is the chance to enjoy Noel Fitzpatrick Live, a twice-daily talk in which Professor Fitzpatrick takes to the Super Stage to share heart-warming stories from his veterinary career. Visitors can also join Professor Fitzpatrick as he leads the Great Dog Walk in aid of animal welfare charities such as The Humanimal Trust.
In addition to seeing Professor Fitzpatrick in person, visitors can partake in expert-led activities, such as School 4 Dogs, a programme of dog training sessions designed to turn disobedient dogs into courteous companions, and seek free dog weight checks and tailored diet and exercise advice from trained veterinary nurses in Pet Healthy Weight Check Corner. Other attractions include Dogs with Jobs, The Big Dog Dig, Temptation Alley and Top Dog Ring. There is also a Festival Village with a shopping area and dog grooming stations, and a Chill Out Area with plenty of cool water and shaded rest areas for dogs and their owners.
Dog lovers have the option to purchase VIP DogFest tickets to enjoy all the benefits of general admission, as well as special privileges, such as fast track entry, VIP lounge access and the chance to attend an appearance and Q&A session with Professor Fitzpatrick.
DogFest's noteworthy awards
DogFest plays host to The Supervet Hero Awards, in which Professor Fitzpatrick honours some of the most courageous canine patients from his world-class veterinary centres in Surrey. Visitors are also invited to enter their pooches into the Fun Dog Awards to compete for humorous accolades, such as the Dog with the Waggiest Tail.
