Dubbed as “Glastonbury with the bark factor”, Dogstival is back this year with plenty of activities and entertainment catered for your dog’s enjoyment. The festival will take place on June Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 in Burley Park in the New Forest.

One of the main attractions is Barkour, Dogstival’s twist on parkour, where pups can navigate their way through an adventure playground of agility ramps, sandpits, ball pits, see-saws and more.

Plus canicross (cross country running with dogs) and a giant eight metre dog diving splash pool so water-loving dogs launch themselves into the water. 

There will be plenty of dog snacks available at the Pop+Bark Pupuccino Bar as well as a live canine cooking stage, which will focus on canine nutrition and keeping your dog healthy.

Celebrity vet Dr Scott Miller will host a Q&A session from inside the BIG Bliss, a giant dog bed. Mr Miller will provide advice and demonstrations on how to keep dogs in top health. There will be a pop-up vet and physio drop-in centre.

There will even be a K9 Chapel of Love where dogs that find their festival soulmate can get hitched, complete with a newly-wed dress up box.

The festival will champion small, independent pet businesses in more than 140 stalls selling everything your dog could ever need.

Dogstival organiser Richard Nowell says: “We can’t wait for June to arrive and are excitedly finalizing our show programme that celebrates the coming together of those four-legged friends, who have been the best therapy this past year!
