Have a go activities

Every year the festival welcomes clubs and instructors from across the North East; these fabulous teams spend the weekend introducing 100s of dogs and their owners to a range of different activities. 

There is something for every dog and great prizes up for grabs throughout the weekend. 

Displays and Demos

The festival hosts not one, but two large arenas. You'll find our popular display ring on the North Field where crowd favourites will return to keep visitors entertained all weekend. 

The South Field hosts our demonstration ring where you'll be able to watch and listen to fantastic trainers and clubs from across the country and learn about dog sports and activities. 


Wellness Marquee

Every year the festival welcomes experts to speak on a range of topics.  Listen to talks on everything from dog behaviour to first aid, canine massage and nutrition and more. 

Just look for the gorgeous Belle Tent. 

Timetable coming soon. 


Dog Shows

Our charity dog shows are one of the most popular events for festival visitors with plenty of prizes up for grabs and gorgeous rosettes. 


The festival provides a great platform for these fantastic charities to raise money and spread the word about their wonderful causes. 

With a full weekend of fun you'll have plenty of classes to choose from. 

2021 was a phenomenal year for our charities, raising £1000's. Hundreds of dogs took part across the three shows, culminating in the festival champion class in the display ring.
