When and where is Dogstival?

Dogstival is held at Burley Park, Burley, New Forest, BH24 4AB

Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th June 2021

Planned roadworks!!!

We are very sorry but the not so lovely people at HIGHWAYS ENGLAND have decided in their infinite wisdom that June is the perfect month to replace a faulty cattle grid on the main road into Burley from the A31. We have been told that despite deteriorating for some time they have decided to replace this over the weekend of our event despite having had 6 months during the last lockdown to do the works!

We are very sorry for the inconveniece! if you would like to complain... please do. WE HAVE! 😭

What does it mean? There will be a short 1 mile diversion which will be clearly signposted

The diversion route to Burley from the Westbound. CLICK HERE

And to access the A31 West bound from Burley CLICK HERE

What they have failed to do is signpost the best way home! so when you turn right out of our car park to leave Burley, turn left onto Smugglers Road and then right at Crow an this will take you up to HIghtown and onto the A31. 

What are the opening times?

Saturday 5th June 9.30 - 5.30pm

Sunday 6th June 9.30 -5.30pm

What extra measures will be in place to ensure everyone's safety?

Here's our 10 Point Pawplan of how we're making Dogstival as safe as a Doghouse.....

  1. First up, if you feel unwell a few days before the event, please don't come. Either give your ticket to a family member or friend, or get in touch and we'll work something out with your ticket for next year.  
  2. Dogstival Distancing. We've worked out the site plan so everyone's got about 10sqm (or 12 spaniels x 10 spaniels) of space.It's huge open field to stroll around. Seating will be spaced out across the site too. 
  3. there'll be hand sanitiser stations at the entrances, in the food areas, on each stand and of course in each loo. Feel free to bring your own, but we'll have that covered! 
  4. General Cleaning; we'll have an on-site A-team cleaning loo's, benches or any surfaces across the weekend. More than any other place you've visited in a past few weeks.
  5.  Queues; we're aiming to get everyone in quickly and limit or manage any queues around the site at busy stands or arenas. Keep an eye out for markers or notices to help keep your distance. 
  6. Dogs Sharing; at the moment CFSG guidelines state 'we can provide water, but not shared drinking bowls.' So, please bring your dog's travel bowl to fill up and we'll supply the H2O. If you're having a go at flyball we'll provide your dog with their very own ball to keep. 
  7. Event programme; this will be in a digital or smartphone format and everyone will get a note how to download in the days leading up to Dogstival. We're trying to limit 'handing things out'. Plus, we'll have a PA system announcing all the news across the weekend.  
  8. Foody Things; all our food retailers will have 'one serve condiments' so we're not sharing stuff
  9. You; whilst we'll have lots of signage to remind us about keeping safe, we ask you as super responsible dog-owners to also take into account others. Please don't touch other people's dogs
  10. Sampling will be conducted in a controlled way using gloves
Things to know about bringing my dog

Dogstival is all about having a fun day out with your dog so please do bring them along. Please note dogs must be kept on the lead unless in a specified area, on the beach or participating in one of the have-a-go activities.

Dogs should be covered by current vaccinations. If your dog is in season it is not a good idea to attend or if your dog is not well socialised, or can be boisterous around other dogs please consider if this the right event for you.

For more details please refer to our animal welfare guidelines.

Amazing Day Out

Amazing day out! My dog had the best day, there was so much space we didn't feel like their paws were getting on top of each other. My dog was relaxed and enjoyed the whole day lots of great treats and every dog was so lovely they all got along great which was amazing! Great drinks and food for us pawrents too. Can't wait for next year
