Great Dog Walk

There is no word dogs love to hear more than “WALKIES!” And at DogFest 2018 we’re shouting it from the rooftops.

Twice a day the Great Dog Walk, sponsored by the Big Tick Project, will take place, giving you and your dog the chance to join thousands of others on a 2km or 4km walk and take a beautiful walk with your furriest friend. With a walk at 11am and 3pm, there is time for everyone to pop down and join in! 

But during your dog’s little outdoor adventures they can become susceptible to ticks and fleas. Ticks can be bad news not just for our pets but for humans too. Nasty diseases carried by ticks can make both animals and people seriously ill - in some cases, it can be fatal.

This doesn’t mean you should avoid ‘walkies’ altogether. Join the Big Tick Project team at Dogfest on the Great Dog Walk, giving you and your dog the chance to join thousands of others on the walk, while having all your tick-related questions answered.

Vets, vet nurses and special guest Chris Packham (TV presenter, naturalist and dog owner), will be on hand at the Big Tick Project tent throughout the day to teach you everything you need to know about protecting your pet from ticks.
