The ultimate doggy day out is coming to Leeds’ Harewood House this weekend, offering the perfect socialisation opportunity for the city’s lockdown pups.

Attractions on the day include a ‘dogstacle’ course, doggy shopping stalls, expert canine advice, a dog show and refreshments for pups and their owners.

It’s all happening as part of The Big Dog Walk, which is being brought to the historic Leeds property in association with Bought By Many.

As part of the event, walkers can choose from a two, five or ten kilometre route depending on their dogs size, health and energy levels.

There will be games and prizes to discover along the way, finishing up with a Big Dog Walk rosette that will be awarded to every pooch on completion.

There’s also going to be a special ‘puppy socialisation’ area for young dogs to interact and play with others in safe, secure environment.

“We have been blown away by the support for our Big Dog Walks which have taken place across the country over the past few weekends,” said Nicole Cooper, managing director of touchpoint live media who has organised the Big Dog Walk.

“It has been a wonderful opportunity for people to get together.

“The relaxed and joyful atmosphere we have witnessed has been a powerful reminder that events like this nourish our souls and have been a gaping hole in our lives.

Harewood House is such an idyllic venue and we can’t wait to welcome those faithful companions who have kept us going though lockdown and provide them with the pawesome day they deserve!”.

The Big Dog Walk takes place from 9.30 am to 3 pm on Sunday 27th June. All walks will be staggered to help keep participants safe in line with Covid guidelines.
