We had hoped to welcome you to celebrate everything we love about dogs at Goodwoof in May 2020. However, following advice from the Government and Public Health England, we have taken the decision to postpone Goodwoof until spring 2021 due to COVID-19.
Can I bring my dog?
Of course! Especially as the event is all about the dog! There will be many dogs on event so proper etiquette is essential to keep all dogs happy and safe.
