Pets As Therapy at Dogstival 2024

We are returning to Dogstival on the 1-2 June at Burley Park, Burley, 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 17 closer to the Barkour Pawlympics arena (check the map below) 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 fundraising PATnic and meet our amazing volunteers and their PAT Dogs.


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

"It’s a day out dedicated to our four-legged friends and packed full of canine approved entertainment. With paw-dropping arena displays, heaps of ‘have a go’ activities for your pooch, live music and treats for everyone."


We can't wait to see you.

Come and join us with or without your dog, we've got a lot planned for you:

  • Pets As Therapy talks on the main stage BOTH days at 10:30am. Where do we visit? What's the impact of PAT's work? All this and more.
  • Meet our volunteers and their dogs and learn how you could become a PAT Team with your pet.
  • Sign up to become a Pets As Therapy Assessor. If you have experience in the dog behaviour/training industry, we'd love for you to join us in assessing new dogs and help us bring more therapeutic pet visits across the UK.


When: Saturday and Sunday 1-2 June 2024

Where: Burley Park, Burley, Hampshire, BH24 4BS

Where can you find Pets As Therapy?

We'll be at Stand 17, very close to the Barkour Pawlympics arena. When you enter the park, turn left and follow the long line of stalls.
