The talented animals will demonstrate their agility and intelligence in races, tricks and games that help owners understand more about the fun to be had training their pets.

For water-loving dogs, there will be K9 Aquasport, where pets can try out dock diving or dock jumping.

This year’s Big Doggie Do has attracted more than 30 leading vendors of dog-related goodies, including Butternut Box, makers of hand-baked dog-friendly treats, and Rachel Baker, a pet portrait artist.ed

Martin Chesse from The Parks Trust said: “The Big Doggie Do is back with a bark! I am thrilled with our packed programme of activities and extended vendor line up.

"Last year’s visitors told us they really enjoy learning about the latest helpful dog gadgets or special gifts to pamper their treasured pets. We look forward to welcoming a big crowd to the event and seeing lots of wagging tails at Willen Lake.”
