We are delighted to have Mary Burgess from the Animal Star Awards judging the 1.30pm classes this year. The Animal Star Awards was founded in 2016 to give recognition to animals and humans are like for the extraordinary things that they do for one another. 

"For the first time in 2023, we will be giving recognition to the best pet related day out. It was a category that was requested by members of the public and it would be great to show appreciation for the organisers of such wonderful events. I am looking forward to being part of Dogstival this year, having supported the event for several years and is delighted that they have been chosen as a finalist.” Mary
