Pets As Therapy will be at Dogstival 2023

We are returning to Dogstival on the 3-4 June at the Broadlands Estate in Romsey, are you coming?


Sponsored by Naturo, the coolest dog show in town is back! Tickets are still available to pre-order HERE or to purchase on the day.

You will find us at Stand 86  (right next to Naturo) where    our team members will tell you all about how to become a     Pets As Therapy volunteer with your pet, how to sign up to host a PATnic and meet our amazing volunteers and their PAT Dogs.

The weekend is packed with activities for you and your family:

PAT Talks: We will be holding talks at the main stage every day at 12pm and 3pm. Have you always wondered what makes a great PAT Dog? Or are you still curious to know how therapeutic pet visits benefit so many people across the UK? Or if you wish to hear anecdotes and stories directly from our volunteers, you will find our team members on the main stage every day at 12pm.


A raffle in aid of PAT: The wonderful people at Archie's Pet Pantry are holding a raffle at their stand (stand 72), and the lucky winner will receive a beautiful cuddly dog, with all proceeds going to Pets As Therapy.


With lots of activities for your pooches as well of course, like the Dog Show ring, the K9 splash pool and so much more.


This year's Dogstival has it all.

Don't forget, tickets can be purchased HERE or even on the day.



We are always looking to recruit more volunteers.
