The Dog Lovers' Arena

Sponsored by PDSA

We know that dogs have many talents, and here’s the arena that proves it. Enjoy a packed schedule of demonstrations, competitions and performances.

The arena was hosted by Blue Peter presenter Peter Purves in 2019, and the daily timetable for 2020 will include remarkable displays of tricks, agility and skill.

Working gun dogs and sheep dogs as well as some more flamboyant performers will join the line up.

In Hot Weather

If your dog looks like they’re struggling in the heat, head to the nearest shaded area (this includes our marquee) and alert a member of the show organisers. Owners should be aware of the signs of heat stress. Some dogs are more prone than others (e.g. those with short flat faces, overweight, old, young and dogs with thick coats).

Be aware of the signs of overheating in dogs, which include panting, disorientation, excessive thirst, dark gums, vomiting, diarrhoea and losing consciousness.

If you think your dog will not cope with the heat, please leave them at home.

In the event that the events team and the trainers feel the conditions are not conducive to dogs welfare we reserve the right to cancel the event at short notice.
