The charity dog shows are an integral part of the North East Dog Festival. For years charities have raised £1000s for their individual causes with hundreds of dogs taking part. This year we welcome some new faces and returning favourites.
Dog shows run throughout the weekend with a range of classes. Each class has a start time and can be entered via registration at the corresponding charity dog show area. Dog shows are fenced and entry fees may vary from show to show. See below for a full list of classes and start times.
All 1st place winners can visit the stewards area with their 1st place rosette to choose a limited edition festival character pin badge.

Introducing our specialist sponsor...
Spotty Dog Design was founded back in 2019 by Charlotte, creating accessories out of the love of dogs and adventures. With inspiration drawn from the gorgeous Northumberland countryside and coast; each piece is unique and handmade in our studio in the heart of Northumberland, which means no two pieces are ever the same. Spotty Dog Design aims to create pieces that hold up to any adventure, but still turns heads.
Charlotte also works as a registered veterinary nurse seeing animals of all shapes and sizes, most of which wear the same style of collar or lead. Spotty Dog Design wanted to create something which was fun, and different, something which we hope you see with our ever-growing collar collections.
Spotty Dog Design is forever expanding, and we now offer a range of natural chews, treats, enrichment, toys and more. We strive to be rawhide free in order to keep your pups safe and healthy. All our products are sourced from UK/EU to ensure they meet all regulated safety guidelines.
Join our adventure
As passionate dog owners, we understand what your pets mean to you, and we too want the very best for your dogs.
