Puppy Zone

If you have a puppy and are looking for advice and a chance to learn more about your new member of the family, the Puppy Zone, organised by Puppy School, is the perfect stop for you. 

Specially created to give puppies their very own place, the Puppy Zone gives you the chance to learn, play and rest with your puppy.

You will be in safe hands as the Puppy Zone will be run and staffed Puppy School, the UK leading network of well-trained and professional puppy classes trainers.  Led by animal behaviour expert, Gwen Bailey, the Puppy School team of over 100 tutors around the UK train over 8,000 puppies and owners every year.


Train and Play – there will be different activities at different times of the day to include puppy training, games and playing sessions and puppies meeting children.  Owners can book their puppy into the different activities and members of the Puppy School staff will be on hand to help teach and make sure everyone learns and has a great time.

Move & Discover – puppies can learn to negotiate lots of different types of obstacles, all safe but all with a slightly different challenge to help build their confidence and expand their horizons.  Puppy School staff will be on hand to help owners and puppies around the course and ensure they all have a successful, happy and interesting time.  

Chill & Learn – puppies can relax in a covered area with their owners who can learn from various sources within the tent.  Puppy School tutors are on hand to assist and answer any questions.  

There are a limited number of spaces in each session. No pre-booking available so please come to the entrance tent at the Puppy Zone early on in the day to book your place and avoid disappointment. 

Please note: all puppies attending the show must be fully inoculated and protected.



Remember to bring a water dish and bottle, food for your puppy, and a piece of bedding for young puppies to help them settle down for naps throughout the day.  A young pup will tire quickly with all the excitement of the show so find a quiet spot frequently to let your puppy rest.
