A big ‘paws up’ to our fab sponsors!

Dogstival would not be possible without a little help from our brilliant friends and partners

The Mackle Family have been creating high-quality pet food in County Armagh, Northern Ireland for over 50 years. Naturo Natural Pet Food is a part of the family business. Naturo was created in 2010 after Mackle Petfoods recognised the need for a natural dog and cat food, that used high-quality ingredients and was accessible to all pet parents who wanted to provide a healthy diet for their four-legged friends.

Working closely with leading nutritionists, Naturo Natural Pet Food’s recipes contain high-quality human grade pet food with 100% natural ingredients, added vitamins and minerals, and helps meet the nutritional needs of a healthy and happy pet.

Naturo Natural Pet Foods are proud to be the No.1 Natural Wet Dog food brand in the UK and has been since 2017*. They are the 5th highest selling overall Wet Dog Food Brand in the UK.*

Our dogs and cats are not just pets, they are four-legged family members. Find out how Naturo helps look after them below.

They’re never just a pet. We’re not just an insurer.

Our pets are incredible! They’re not just our chosen companions, they’re part of our family. They accept us with all our failings and flaws, they love us unconditionally, and sometimes… they don’t even mind when we sing to them!

That’s why at Animal Friends, we believe that protecting your furriest family member should be easy and not cost the earth.

They’re there for you. We’re here for them.

We also believe that even the smallest acts of kindness can make a big difference. Our pet policies not only offer you peace of mind, but they also have a much bigger purpose. So far, we’ve donated over £7.8 million to more than 700 animal welfare charities and conservancies across all 7 continents, and we’re still going!

Dogstival is delighted to be supporting some amazing charities!

Dogs Trust is excited to be at Dogstival this year with our own one-stop Dogs Trust Village.

We will have information about some of our dogs currently looking for their new forever homes – from local rehoming centres in Salisbury, Newbury and Uxbridge, to those further afield across the UK.

Plus, if you fancy a look around your local rehoming centre we will be offering virtual touts of our sites across the Dogstival weekend. You can also follow up this with a personal face-to-face tour at your local centre. Just speak with any of our team in the Dogs Trust Village to arrange this.

We’ll also have information about the range of services we provide, such as the popular Canine Care Card Service, Dog School and Freedom & Hope Projects. We will also have various other activities and games across the weekend to keep you, your family and your dog entertained.

We are a national charity founded in 1983 by Lesley Scott-Ordish. We enhance health and wellbeing in the community through the visits of trusted volunteers with their behaviourally assessed animals. We provide a visiting service in hospitals, hospices, nursing and care homes, special needs schools and a variety of other venues all across the UK.

Our therapeutic visits:
• Enhance lives in our communities by providing companionship and friendship and helps to tackle loneliness.
• Improve the lives of people suffering from debilitating mental and physical health conditions and illnesses such as Autism, Dementia and Stroke by including animal assisted interventions as part of a holistic approach to treatment.
• Improve literacy in children by developing their confidence, interest and enjoyment in reading through our read2dogs scheme.
