Hosted by Channel 4’s Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick and sponsored by Natural Instinct, DogFest is the, er, paw-fect day out for dogs and their owners nationwide. With amazing action displays, have a go sessions and some excellent shopping, dogs are welcomed to DogFest with open arms, with plenty on offer for owners and dogs alike.

For your four-legged friends, there will be plenty of have-a-go activities to take part in, including Flyball, agility sessions, dog diving, training and not forgetting the Fun Dog competition, where special guest judges will present competing dogs with awards including dog with the waggiest tail and for the dog that can balance the most treats. For dogs who like a bit of pampering, you can even treat your best friend to a grooming session.
