Come along to the Dog Lovers Show and check out the talented dogs on show in the main arena as they demonstrate their training and agility for all to see. There will be demonstrations about herding sheep, rescue operations and scent tracking.

You can also come along to the show to learn more about breeds of dogs or get some advice from a qualified vet about how to ensure your dog is living a happy and healthy life.

There will be a wealth of information for dog owners including information about how to choose the right dog for your lifestyle as well as grooming, training and feeding tips and tricks. All shows and presentations are free with the purchase of your entry ticket, so make sure to head down to the Celebrity Vet Stage, Rescue Dog Zone and Pat-A-Pooch.

You will be able to browse the latest products and services available for your dog including food, toys, bedding as well as some new and unique products. Unfortunately, your dog is not permitted into the event, unless they are an assistance dog.
