Goodwoof 2023

Our 40th birthday celebrations continue, and we're extremely excited to be back at Goodwoof, celebrating all things dogs, at the Goodwood Estate near Chichester.

What to expect?

Visit our Pets As Therapy area and you'll have the chance to talk to PAT Teams and find out how to become a volunteer with your pet – join us in our mission to offer therapeutic pet sessions to people who need them most.

We will also have talks and demonstrations about our Pets As Therapy assessments, with PAT-certified Assessors ready to answer any questions.

Barkitecture is also returning this year, with a new exhibition and competition of stunning, cutting-edge kennel designs, hosted by Kevin McCloud MBE and the Duke of Richmond.

All the kennels will be auctioned, with the proceeds coming to Pets As Therapy as this year’s Goodwoof chosen charity.

And in partnership with Bentley Motors, we are hosting our very own “pup-arazzi” corner where the new Bentayga EWB will be available for your dog to sit in and have a professional photo taken, wind machine and all!


Goodwoof 2023, presented by MARS Petcare, will take on place on Saturday 20 May and Sunday 21 May 2023 at The Kennels, Chichester, West Sussex, PO18 0PN
Gates open at 9.30am
Gates close at 5pm






We are always looking to recruit more volunteers.
