You'd be barking mad to miss DogFest, which will get the tails wagging of many a man's best four-legged friend and takes place at Ashton Court Estate this weekend from Saturday 23rd to Sunday 24th June 2018.

Bristol dog lovers will certainly not want to miss out on this one.

The Supervet himself, Noel Fitzpatrick, will host the event for this canine-inspired two-day celebration that will include incredible agility displays, dog dancing, and thrilling action performances such as Temptation Alley, Dog Diving, Flyball, and the Agility Ring which will comprise of tricky runs, tunnels and obstacles to navigate. 


Particular highlights of the weekend will be the School 4 Dogs arena, Dogs with Jobs, Fun Dog Show, and the always-popular Great Dog Walk, which will be led by Noel twice a day and give you chance to exercise with your mutt and explore the venue's beautiful surroundings, all the while raising money for charity.  


Dog School will be the perfect training ground for visitors to turn their mischievous, disobedient pets into models of impeccable behaviour, including puppy training using obedience displays and props. 


It's a win-win for dog owners and their furry friends; a paw-fect (sorry, couldn't resist) two-day event where you can chat to the experts, listen to informative talks, treat your dogs (and yourselves, of course) to a fantastic range of delicious food and drink, and enjoy some first-rate live music.  


Tickets cost £16.50 for adults, £10.50 for children, £14.50 for Seniors, and a family ticket for £45. You can find out more about DogFest here.


Ashton Court Estate is located at Long Ashton, Bristol, BS41 9JN.  Tel. 08445 814936.
