A wonderful celebration of dogs, countryside and wild creatures!

I-Mac Fire & Security are sponsoring Dorset Dogs Festival 2019 in recognition of the wonderful benefits of dogs for mental health and well-being whilst Natterjacks Vet are sponsoring the Fun Dog Show. Thank you!

Have-a-go at family and dog activities, enjoy the fun dog show or explore the spacious grounds, visit the many dog, countryside, and conservation stands, all with scrumptious refreshments and a big marquee at a beautiful riverside setting.

Please note this is a beautiful riverside site and there are ponds further into the park too, keep eyes on your dogs and children. Leads on in the parking areas and on the Festival site during the event but the rest of the park is off-lead. The park is dog-friendly and off-lead all year round, and includes a securely fenced area with tree shade and benches.
