Hay Bale Race

The Hay Race, sponsored by Eukanuba and SmartBones

The Hay Race, sponsored by Eukanuba and SmartBones, was one of the most popular features at DogFest last year, enjoyed by many dogs and owners alike! 

Dogs are timed as they jump over a series of hay bales, encouraged by their owner waiting at the finish line! Many of the owners show their dogs how it's done first, whilst the dog is waiting - somewhat patiently! - at the start line, so there is plenty of fun to be had!

It's a short burst of great fun, giving lots of dogs the opportunity to have-a-go and, as an added bonus, prizes will be offered for the fastest times throughout the weekend!

A few words from Eukanuba

At EUKANUBA we’re passionate about keeping your faithful companion in Optimal Body Condition.

As such we are proud to sponsor the adrenaline-charged EUKANUBA Hale Bale Race, where visitors can experience a burst of great fun as they encourage their dogs to achieve their best timings jumping over a series of hay bales and reaching the finish line!

In addition, we will be treating our canine audience & participants alike to a FREE tasty sample of our New & Improved EUKANUBA tailored recipe, as a little thank you for sharing the moment and helping them with their energy levels for the rest of their action-packed day out. We look forward to seeing you there!
