Alnorthumbria Vets joins festival as wellness sponsor.
The North East Dog Festival is thrilled to announce Alnorthumbria Vets as this years wellness sponsor.
This year the wellness speakers will be hosted in a beautiful tipi - new for 2023! Thanks to the Unique Tent Co.
The wellness tipi will provide visitors with a weekend packed with expect speakers covering a range of topics.
Hazel Bone, of Alnorthumbria Vets commented "As one of the more established vets with several practices in Northumberland we wanted to show our support for the festival. We see so many dogs of all ages, sizes and breeds and we feel promoting the health & wellness of our animals is of huge importance so what better way to enlighten people as to what we offer than by sponsoring the wellness tipi."
The tipi will welcome back returning favourites as well as new additions. Visitors will be able to sit down and enjoy topics on everything from 'Why dog walking is an extreme sport!' to 'Reinforcement. What it is and how we use it'.
You'll be able to find out why its a great idea to 'Stop Walking Your Dog' with Scentventure founder Katie. Plus Martin Peagam will be entertaining crowds with 'Changing Lives: Hearing Dogs for Deaf People'.
Festival founders Rebecca and Dawn commented "We are thrilled to have Alnorthumbria Vets onboard this year. The wellness tipi is such an integral part of the festival ethos and we are excited for the weekend plans. It's a privilege to be able to put together such an array of speakers and it all be included free for visitors. The festival is now in its 6th year, and to have had a wellness area since our first event is something we are very proud of."
Alongside the wellness tipi Alnorthumbria Vets will have both vets and nurses on hand in the tent to talk about weight management, behaviour and the extra services that they offer such as acupuncture. They'll also be promoting the benefits of their Healthy Pet Club. The team will offer basic first aid & load score assessments to older pets.
Catering for the children the team will be showing them how to bandage their teddy and offering a colouring corner providing information on a visit to the vets.
A full timetable will be available soon.
