Dogtastic days out for you and your dog! Paws in the Park are Britain’s favourite fun dog shows, with lots of dog games and activities to try including flyball, canine search and rescue, and dog agility. Enjoy a weekend packed with superb arena displays and entertainment, exciting dog activities to try, plus superb shopping for your furry friends. It's a pawfect day out with the kids too!

Arena Attractions

Some of the UK's fastest, most famous and most furry dog displays and doggy entertainment acts, all appearing live in the arena and all included in the entry ticket price.

Have a Go Activities

Paws in the Park dog competitions

At Paws in the Park, you don't just get to watch dog activities, you can try them for yourself! Try your dog's skill at Search and Rescue, see how far they can jump at Dash N Splash, or if they've got the required need for speed for flyball. Even the tiniest dogs are catered for with the Mini Paws activity centre!

Doggy Competitions

Your pooches can win prizes in a whole range of fun competitions, including agility, cani-cross, and Dash N Splash.

Companion Dog Show

An open to all dog show including cross breed and novelty classes.

Doggy Shopping

Shop for all your dogs needs at the outdoor trade stands.


Overnight camping is available for all shows, with free Friday and Saturday night entertainment at the Autumn show only. The Summer Fair has limited camping. There are toilets and shower facilities. Unfortunately none of the showgrounds have disabled showers. There is food and a bar available on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Camping must be booked in advance. See the weekend camping page for more details.

Why don't you have any shows in the North, we're in South Yorkshire, and Kent is a long way to travel with a dog, for just a one day show.

Apologies Tina. We have expanded to West Sussex and Hampshire! Hopefully one day we will reach the North!
Apologies for the late reply, these messages aren't sent directly to me.

I am also looking for an event in Yorkshire as I can't find anything suitable and I know my dog would love to give it a go! Any ideas?!
