The dog festival is based in the UK and is down the bottom of the country past Torquay. You will most likely need to go by car unless you live in the very south of England. We are in Southampton and it is still a 3 hour drive for us. If you are coming from Leeds or Newcastle, make sure you have got all the dog accessories you will need ready for a very long but exciting road trip!

Will Travfurler Be At Woofstock This Year?

We hope to be there. We think it's a fantastic event and we will be joining the rest of you to party with our pup so long as Covid-19 remains out of our way. 

 

In Conclusion

To conclude, Woofstock Dog Festival is simply fantastic as an event for you and your dog. The variety of activities means you can go from music, to dog education through to dog fun and activities. You could also have a drink and conversation with like minded dog lovers. It's not too bad being at the very bottom of the country where it's a touch warmer too, so long as you keep your dogs cool, and what's cooler than attending a festival together!
