DogFest set for weekend-long fun in Warwickshire

DogFest is landing in Warwickshire next weekend with races, shows and specially-planned walkies. The event, which is set up by Dogs Trust, will be at Ragley Hall on Saturday and Sunday, May 28 and 29.

It is known as the ‘ultimate dog friendly festival’ as it offers plenty of activities for your furry friends as well as shows. There will also be information about dogs who are currently in the care of Dogs Trust and need a loving home.

There will also be reunion parades for former residents of Dogs Trust who have now found their forever families to take part in. Louise Round, head of supporter relations at Dogs Trust, said: “This is the second year we have been DogFest’s charity partner and we, and all of our dogs, had a fantastic time last year.

“It was wonderful to see so many who were having a great day out with their forever families. Anyone wanting to raise money for Dogs Trust can take part in the Big Dog Walk at the event.

“There will be walks of 2k and 4k, and one especially for puppies, and there are activities for children to take part in along the way. Also, the walks will take participants to parts of the park others won’t see. Our Dog School colleagues will also be there holding interactive training activities as well as doing demos and giving dog-owners top tips to take home.”

Those looking to attend with their dogs can let them take part in agility course, a hay bale race and a dog show. There is also an action-packed main arena with demonstrations from hugely talented canines and their trainers.

Team members from Dogs Trust Kenilworth will be at the event accompanied by some of the lovely dogs currently being cared for at the centre. One dog looking for his forever home is Suede, a seven-year-old Spaniel Cross who loves cuddles and playing.

Emma-Jane Thomas, Dogs Trust Kenilworth center manager, said: “Suede is a stunning boy, who would love a rural retreat to call home. When Suede grows to know and trust you, he’ll happily provide endless love and affection.

“Getting to know him is like finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. He adores being in the company of people and we hope that as dog-lovers flock to DogFest, Suede finally finds the home he’s looking for.”
