All About Dogs are the UK’s largest and fastest growing festivals devoted to dogs and their owners. Created by dog lovers for dog lovers they’re the ultimate weekend of canine fun, entertainment, and adventure.
From April to October, the All About Dogs extravaganza will visit Trinity Park in Ipswich, Newbury Showground, Newark Showground, the Brentwood Centre in Essex, Norfolk Showground and Hylands Park in Chelmsford.
All About Dogs director Matt Upson said, “The festivals’ popularity is growing every year and we are always looking at new ways to entertain and delight our visitors.
“We see the shows as really fun family events and, of course, that definitely includes the doggy family members.
“Our aim is to deliver a spectacular, feel-good day out for both our two and four-legged visitors and to offer them something unique they wouldn’t get at a traditional dog show event,” he added.
There’s an unrivaled programme of shows, events, arena displays, demonstrations, activities, and family entertainment as well as expert advice and unbeatable shopping opportunities.
From fun dog show classes for everything from the cutest pup and best rescue to waggiest tail and worst hair day to talent shows for gifted pooches All About Dogs is a joyous celebration of man’s best friend.
World class arena displays and demonstrations showcase the extraordinary skills and bonds of both the dogs and their handlers and there’s the chance to meet and chat with renowned dog experts at the Village Green.
Meet the Breeds’ sessions provide a fascinating insight into the individual characteristics, requirements, and personalities of different breeds and there are a host of rescue centres, owners, charities and clubs on hand to answer questions.
The Main Stage plays host to a packed programme of interactive talks and demonstrations as well as live performances and special guest star appearances and the show is packed with a huge selection of both dog-related and general stands and stalls selling the very latest gadgets and products with many at special discounted prices.
