Event designed in a Covid safe environment
Touchpoint Live Media the organisers of the hugely popular Dogfest events are delighted to announce that their Big Dog Walk Series is back for 2021. Following the government’s green light to open up outdoor events, this is truly the time to start planning days out and booking things to look forward to. There are 6 Big Dog Walks planned across the year starting on the 30th May running through to 17th October at stunning locations across the country.
The Big Dog Walks are a unique opportunity for dog owners and their families to walk together in some of the country’s most beautiful stately parks. Dogs and their owners can choose from either a 2k, 5k or 10k route and walk times have been staggered this year for the comfort and safety of all taking part.
Brand new this year there will be a Puppy’s First Socialisation Walk at each of the venues, taking place at 10am, this will be a 2k walk for those with little legs and is a fabulous opportunity to introduce your new addition to other dogs and socialise them in a safe organised way.
The walks aim to bring together dog lovers and dogs and encourage socialisation and exercise. The walk will be the best walk ever for dogs and their families with fun games, surprises around the route.
Back at the Event Village there will be plenty of have-a-go activities for dogs such as a Dogstacle course for you and your dog to take on, shopping, expert advice, fun dog show, doggy splash park, and plenty of refreshments. We are delighted this year to have the Dogs Trust onboard as our Official Charity Partner. Participants can also raise more money for any charity of their choice upon signing up.
The first event in the series is taking place on Sunday 30th May at Belvoir Castle, Lincolnshire followed by Loseley Park, Surrey on 6th June, Borde Hill, Sussex on Sunday 13th June, Harewood House, Yorkshire on 27th June and a little later in the year St Clere, Kent on 3rd October and the final one Hylands Park, Essex on 17th October.
Prices are £10.50 per adult and children 5-16 years are free of charge.
Nicole Cooper, Managing Director of Touchpoint Live Media says; “The Big Dog Walk is a wonderful opportunity for all dog lovers to get out and walk with the four-legged member of the family. We are so thrilled to be hosting walks again this year at these six beautiful locations.
“These walks are a brilliant way to all get together in the great outdoors with all the family, and we cannot wait to welcome everyone”
