dog shows

The charity dog shows form an integral part of the North East Dog Festival. For years charities have raised thousands for their individual causes with hundreds of dogs taking part in a fantastic range of classes.


This year we welcome returning favourites Roo's Journey and Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter in partnership with Chuck Tails...which means we have some super cool classes!

introducing our dog show sponsor 

Chuck Tails is a professional dog chaperone service for weddings, covering the whole of the North East & North Yorkshire.  Aptly named after director Kirsty's own rescue dog Chuck in 2021. The company has a record year ahead of it with 70 bookings, as more couples chose to include their pooches in their weddings.

We know how much dogs mean to their owners and our service helps incorporate your best guest in a stress free way on your wedding day ensuring that your dogs are comfortable throughout.
