It's impossible to imagine how we'd have got through lockdown without our canine companions. So now it's time to reward them with the ultimate treat, a doggy festival.

Dogstival is the ultimate weekend of pawsome fun for canines and their humans. Think of it as Glasbonury with extra bark-factor. 

The event is packed with canine-friendly activities, shows and demonstrations, making it the pawfect treat for all the patient lockdown pups.

Barking fun

New to this year's Dogstival is The BIG Bliss Bolster Bed experience. If your pup is constantly pinching your bed, then get your own back with this luxury dog bed that's bigger than a super king-sized. Luxury dog bedding designers Charley Chau have used more than 75 square meters of fabric to create this dream bed, ensuring there's room for all the family. You won't be able to resist giving the bed a try.

You will also get to learn a thing or two about your canine from the celebrity vet, Dr Scott Miller. He will be hosting a Q&A session from The BIG Bolster Bed and sharing his tips on keeping your pup in tip-top health.

Fun and frolics

Dogstival also gives your pup the chance to stretch their paws at BARKOUR (think Parkour with a canine twist). It's the ultimate adventure playground that will put dogs and their owners through their paces. There's also flyball, agility and fun scent demonstrations and a giant K9 dog diving pool if your four-legged friends enjoy some fun in the water.

Your four-legged friend will also find doggy-friendly treats to try, a live canine cooking demonstration to watch and impressive displays from Hampshire Fire & Rescue's Arson Task Force's Dog Team.
