Twice a day, Noel will lead the way on The Great Dog Walk, which is the perfect opportunity for visitors to get some exercise with their dog, explore the wonderful surroundings of our three venues and raise some money for charity.

There are many opportunities for visitors and their dog to join in with the action, including behaviour workshops at the School 4 Dogs, where even the most disobedient dog can become a teacher’s pet! Sessions include puppy training, how to teach your dog to perform using props and obedience displays.


Also available to try are the Hay Bale Race and crowd favourite Temptation Alley, plus so much more to keep dogs entertained.


While the dogs enjoy an energising day out, visitors can watch displays in the main ring; get first-hand advice from experts during informative talks; treat themselves to a delicious spread of food and drink; listen to live music and pamper their pooch with some excellent shopping.
