It’s Showtime!

Our main arena will be jam-packed with entertainment for all the family. Hosted by Mark Collins from Wave 105 we’re excited to present... full schedule below

Little Nippers, Terriers, Hawk & Lurcher Show

Little Nippers, Terriers, Hawk & Lurcher Show

The bonkers Phill Gibbons with his team are back by popular demand! There’s races between his prized hawks, crafty terriers and lightening lurchers. A totally interactive display sees the arena packed full of dogs chasing lure’s through tunnels or across jumps all set to Phill’s hilarious commentary and music.

Dan The Hat and The Stupid Stunt Show

Dan The Hat and The Stupid Stunt Show

Comedian, stunt man and all round nutter, we can't wait to introduce you to Dan the Hat!!! Loads of skills, an abundance of audience interaction (whether you like it or not) and a whole heap of improvised silliness. You will not be disappointed!!!

Sam Thatcher, Gundog Champion

Sam Thatcher, Gundog Champion

Dogstival also welcomes award winning gundog trainer Sam Thatcher. Hampshire born & breed, but now based on the Cotswolds, Sam along with her trusty Strigidae pack of champion spaniels will demonstrate the brilliance of working dogs and how their training can benefit all breeds or sizes.

Sam works with behavioural and obedience issues as well, giving the owners confidence to reach their goals. She’s competed in the Working Cocker Spaniels for five years and is always in the top awards. The bond between her and her dogs can be seen through the achievements over the years; from gaining 3rd and 4th at the Cocker Spaniel Championships 2018 and 2019, to gaining top Spaniel of the year at the BASC awards 2019.

You'll be able to see Sam's loveable Cockers working alongside her partner, Oliver Organ's, English Springer Spaniels in the Gundog Arena over the weekend.

The Pet Detective, Colin Butcher & Molly

The Pet Detective, Colin Butcher & Molly

We welcome the UK’s only private Pet Detective’s ‘Colin Butcher & Molly’ who’ll give an incredible insight on how they crack canine crimes!

Over the last decade the team that make up the Pet Detectives Agency, have led the investigation of crimes against animals and every year recover more stolen and missing cats and dogs than any of the police forces in the UK.

Chief Investigator Colin Butcher has been recovering stolen and missing pets for over twenty years and has a wealth of experience in the investigation of serious and major crimes that are often part of more complex investigations such as ransom demands, pet charity fraud and pet killings.

There’s More!

There’s More!

Plus, we’ll have TV Vet Dr Scott Miller back with his fun ‘canine heads and tails’ quiz at lunchtime with prizes, rosettes and smiles galore to be had!
