Introducing our charity dog show sponsor; Spotty Dog Design
Spotty Dog Design has been announced as this years charity dog show sponsor for The North East Dog Festival.
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.
All of the above would not be possible without our fantastic supporters; this year we welcome back Spotty Dog Design. Spotty Dog Design was founded back in 2019 by Charlotte Smithson, 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, director at Spotty Dog Design commented
This year we are super excited to not only be supporting one, but three amazing charities. One of the three charities is very close to our hearts, as that is where we rescued one of the spotty dogs, Rosie from. These charities all do such amazing things for their animals, giving them all another chance to find their forever homes.
