THE MAIN RING
Make sure you get ringside for some fantastic displays at this years festival. Thanks to the many great local clubs that are going to put on a star studded show! Timetable coming soon...
| Speedathon Final |
Join Phase Purple Dog Training Club as they host the North East Dog Festival agility finals to see who will be crowned top dog in the North East. Competitors will have qualified at shows throughout the year so the pressure is on to see if they can get it right in-front of the crowds!
| Flyball |
Eclipse Flyball Club will once again be joining us in the main ring to show the crowds what flyball is all about. Fast, fun and usually very loud! Teams will compete against each other so make sure you choose a side and cheer!
| EASBT Display Team |
The East Anglian Staffordshire Bull Terrier Display Team love to show off the positive side of our Staffordshire Bull Terriers, a breed that sometimes attracts the wrong sort of attention. Staffords love to learn and to please their owners; ours show off their agility and athleticism, their obedience - sometimes a little bit of disobedience! - their intelligence and also their comical sense of humour. As seen in the main arena at Discover Dogs, Crufts and BBC Countryfile Live at Blenheim Palace.
| Wallsend Rising Sun Whippet Racing Club |
For the first time at the festival you can see the skill and speed involved in whippet racing! Find out more about this local club...and maybe even have a go with your own dog later in the day!
| Hoopers |
Hoopers is a relatively new dog sport, which utilises a series of ground-level obstacles called Hoops. Instead of physical dexterity, the challenge of Hoopers is entirely focused on the ability of the handler and the dog to work together as a smooth flowing team. Watch the experts at work and then head over to The Sporting Dog Village to have a go with your own dog.
