Due to this success, Fitz All Media decided to launch the Great Dog Walk as a series of events around the UK, with the aim of bringing people and their animals together as part of the biggest communal dog walking series in the country with the opportunity for people to raise money for charity.
For the past six years, over 125,000 people accompanied by their pets have taken part in The Great Dog Walk at Dogfest.
Last year DogFest saw a 41% increase in visitor ticket sales from 2018 to 2019 with 70,944 total visitors making it the largest DogFest to date, along with a 76% increase YOY of sponsorship sales. The 2019 show attracted sponsorship from leading pet industry names and over 540 exhibitors.
The festival itself includes dog friendly attractions, activities and entertainment, with guests including TV personalities Noel Fitzpatrick and Clare Balding.
