DogFest, the ultimate UK summer festival for dogs, returns to Arley Hall next weekend with even more activities for you and your four-legged friend to enjoy.

There are now even more have-a-go activities for your dog to try this year at DogFest.

Last year’s favourites like 'Dog Diving', to keep your pup cool in the sun, and Temptation Alley return bigger and better than ever, as well as the amazing 'Hay Bale Race' and the 'Have-A-Go Agility Ring'.

Brand new for this year is the 'Big Dog Dig', where your pup will be able to dig its way to prizes and treats. As well as all these, there will be the extremely popular 'School 4 Dogs', where you can learn how to transform your dog from a disobedient pupil to teacher’s pet.

Twice a day, Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick will start the 'Big Tick Great Dog Walk' – which is your opportunity to explore the grounds of Arley Hall.

Brand new for 2017, the festival is also staging a Sunday morning 'Doggy Dash', a 5km run around the grounds.

Organisers said they are being joined this year by some 'Very Important Pooches', including working police dogs who will be demonstrating their skills. There will also be agility performances by dog display teams where you and your dog can learn from the best. As well as these you can also watch hilarious moments from all the have-a-go activities and see exhilarating races like Flyball.

An unmissable event over the DogFest weekend and a highlight of the show is the Noel Fitzpatrick Live event. Come and hear the stories behind the filming of the Supervet, as well as the highs and lows of working in a veterinary practice.

Enjoy the festival atmosphere with gourmet food stalls and shopping where you can treat your four-legged friend to their summer wardrobe. With more than 150 stalls and stands to choose between, you’ll be spoilt for choice when choosing goodies for your pampered pooch.
