Festival Inspiration 

"Our ultimate mission, as always, is to create a festival that engages, educates and excites.


As a team we are extremely passionate and hold a very strong belief that all dogs should be given the best life possible for the short time they grace our lives - and that is very much the inspiration for this event"


—  North East Dog Festival Directors 


The last festival was our most successful year yet, seeing an increase in not only visitor numbers but also festival footprint. Utilising the venue we created one large unique space across 50 acres of land. Visitors were treated to a number of different displays, demonstrations, talks and have a go opportunities.

Be part of one of the best dog friendly festivals in this part of the country!
