DogFest celebrates everything that is special and life changing about sharing life with a dog. Hosted by Professor Noel Fitzpatrick, DogFest is an outdoor festival where dogs are welcomed with open arms and includes The Great Dog Walk and have-a-go sessions for dogs including dog diving! Plus, talks and demonstrations on all aspects of a dog’s life, grooming sessions and a chance to enjoy food, drink and plenty of shopping.

When we started out in a field behind my practice I wanted to create an event where everybody who loves a dog could be amongst similar people as an extended family, a fantastic community of those who share the same ideals.

Further to this, I wanted to translate this field of love into a currency for compassion.
