Can I bring my dog?
Absolutely! We love the whole family to visit including your dog. Please bear in mind though, that the show can get very busy with both people and animals – so please make sure you know your dog will be comfortable in this type of environment. Dogs must be kept on a short lead at all times within the showground, and we kindly request that you clean up after them. Dogs should not be left in cars on hot days – bring them in with you!
