Being on my own, I don't get to go out much but I went to this festival in Summer and took my dog. Although my dog is a rescue and doesn't socialise much it's surprising how many people I got talking to. I didn't feel lonely once, we made lots of furry memories there.

What a great weekend we all had, me and my furbabies. We travelled down from Aberavon and stayed all weekend. The sun was shining but not too hot for my babies, there was so much to do . Beer, food and live music with my girls. Triffic!

Dog Lovers is an excellent event for the whole family, including the pawbabies! The whole weekend is superbly organised by the friendly and helpful staff. Every effort is put in place to ensure that our 4 legged friends have enough shade, water and FUN! Dogs are like V.I.Ps; they have access to ALL areas??The atmosphere is wonderful as the entertainment is brilliant. There is something for everyone. It is the best dog friendly event I have been to. My dogs have a wonderful time!
