This year, Dogs Day Out, which is free to attend, will be hosted at Gnoll Park in Neath, giving family, friends and beloved pets the chance to enjoy a special day dedicated to man (and woman’s) best friend.
The event will include a number of dog-friendly activities suitable for the whole family to enjoy. Guests can put their dogs through their paces with some doggy agility or take things at a more leisurely pace on a ‘Lead the Way’ walk –our dog walking scheme which enables pet owners to organise and attend their own dog walks in their local area. There will also be a fun dog show, where proud owners can enter their pooches into a variety of classes including ‘Bad Hair Day’, ‘Golden Oldies’ and ‘Pawsome Pups’.
As well as fun for guests’ furry friends, there will be plenty on offer for humans too, with a whole host of stalls on site in addition to displays from our reading dogs scheme, Burns By Your Side, duck herding team, The Quack Pack, to Wales‘ search and rescue dog association, SARDA.
Attendees will also be able to take home free pet food samples and chat to our Burns’ expert team of professional nutritionists about any concerns or queries they have regarding their pet’s diet.
With thousands of people and their dogs flocking to the event every year, Dogs’ Day Out has grown in popularity to become one of the largest dog events in Wales.
Veterinary Surgeon and Burns founder, John Burns said:
“Our Dogs’ Day Out has proven to be a highly popular event year in, year out and we’re excited for it to return again this summer in Neath. It’s important for us to give back to the community and we love getting to meet many of the pet owners who feed Burns to their beloved pets.”
As with all our Burns events, the event will be not-for-profit with proceeds going to the Burns Pet Nutrition foundation – a charitable trust which aims to make a difference to the lives of individuals and their pets.
Come rain or shine, Dogs’ Day Out will take place between 10am and 4pm at Gnoll Park, Neath, SA11 3BS. Admission is free, parking charges will apply.
