DogFest, the ultimate summer festival for pets and their owners alike, returns for 2019, promising a whole host of shows, displays and activities, and featuring special guests TV's Clare Balding and Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick!

The UK's biggest and best day out for dogs, their families and animal lovers of all ages is back, DogFest will take place in the grounds of three stunning stately homes: Knebworth House in Hertfordshire (May 11-12), Tatton Park in Cheshire (June 15-16) and Ashton Court Estate in Bristol (June 22-23).

The events once again promise a packed schedule of celebrity appearances and expert talks, jaw-dropping dog displays, educational sessions and fun, have-a-go activities.

Everything is geared towards celebrating the amazing bond between dogs and people and promoting animal welfare. All this plus great live music sets, cool street food and shopping galore for pooches and people alike.

Presenter of Crufts' TV coverage, Clare Balding stars for the first time at DogFest. Famed for her love of dogs, she'll headline on the main stage with anecdotes from her life - and those of her four-legged friends. Clare will also lead the Great Dog Walk and award prizes for DogFest's acclaimed Fun Dog Show.

TV's Supervet, Prof Noel Fitzpatrick, known globally for his ground-breaking work, will front a special interactive feature for younger visitors and open The Great Dog Walk.

With the main stage, Activity Arena, Dog Diving, Temptation Alley and Flyball, not to mention so much more to enjoy watching or taking part in or treats to buy for two and four-legged visitors, DogFest promises a weekend of ultimate summer fun for all ages!

Children can even have a go at activities throughout the festival, one of the highlights will be a special obstacle course where they can race with their dogs over tyres, hay bales and scramble nets.
