With a full weekend of fun you'll have plenty of classes to choose from.
Breed Hang Out
We are always amazed at the sheer amount of different breeds that visit our festival so we thought it was about time to get them all together. Over the weekend we have a timetable of different breed hang outs.
Visit the specially set aside area (on our map) at the designated time and hopefully you’ll be met by plenty of fellow lookalikes - great for paw networking, insta influencers and group photographs.
