We are so excited to meet all the wonderful dogs people bring, this is after all a festival in their honour! We aim to make the day as fun, enriching and safe as possible, but for this we need your help.
The below checklist is to help you decide whether you should bring your dog to a Dogs' Day Out. Please make sure you can answer ‘Yes’ to all these questions before bringing along your dog, for their own sake as well as for others!
If your dog doesn’t fit the criteria below it is best to leave them at home and bring back some treats to them after the festival. They will thank you and so will we!
