DogFest - Team South 2017!

Firstly I want to say a huge thank you to the DogFest PR team for allowing me to blog our day on Saturday!
This year the southern DogFest was held in Knebworth (last year it was in Windsor) which made it quite the trip for us (1 hour on the ferry and 1 1/2 hours in the car each way) but it was definitely worth it! The event seemed much better organised this year, we didn't que in the car, parked easily and go in straight away!

I met up with Chloe (with Winnie and Archie) and Shannen (with Bernie) and spent the day with them, all four dogs got on really well and we had no problems all day! :)
I love going to events like this because it's really lovely to be able to catch up with both blogging friends and the various brands we've worked with such as Slumbering Hound (who Sev loved having cuddles with!) PitPat and Huxley Hound! I also bumped into Sarah of Twilight Bark and her two dachshunds; Ted and Millie so couldn't resist taking a group shot!

 Baby Fraggle! 😍
Ted, Millie, Bernie, Sev, Archie & Winnie!

Now onto my favourite part; the shopping! As always I had a list of places to visit/things to buy so that I didn't get totally distracted and want to buy everything (not that I don't do that anyway...!)
I always said I would never be the person that would dress their dogs up, but one look at the tacky hawaiian shirts and I'd gone back on my word! (it actually came in very handy at the PitPat stand!) I can't look at these photos without smiling!
Sev wore his PitPat all day (you can read about it here) and I picked up another at 50% with a free ChuckIt ball launcher which Daisy loves!

 Oh so hideous yet brilliant - £15 well spent! Ha!
Next we headed to Huxley Hound, Zena and her team are just lovely so it was nice to have a catch up! She kindly gave us some of their Sweet Potato and Beetroot treats which the dogs absolutely love! (theres a video off Sev drooling over these on my instagram!) 
 One happy Sev!

Next we headed to Broughton & Co where I ordered two collars with matching Lovelocks - a more in depth post on this is to follow as we've got an extra snazzy collar on order!
 Both photo's of the gorgeous Broughton stand were taken by Chloe

I also knew I wanted to stock up on foods, so we headed to the Benyfit Raw stand and picked up some Benyfit Bites (ultimate photo/show bribes!) and I preordered 20kg of raw to be delivered over the next two months which is super exciting! 

 The smells were clearly too much!
I also headed over to the lovely ladies at Edgard Cooper who instantly recognised Sev which was lovely, I buy their food for when we travel/forget to get raw out - the dachshunds love it and it's only made with the good stuff, they kindly gave me three trays to try on fussy Ava (current verdict is a thumbs up!) - read our previous post here. 

We had such a brilliant time and I know this post is ridiculously long by now so I shall leave you with some more photos!

Thank you for reading, and more importantly - Thank you to the PR team at DogFest for letting us go again! :-)
Jaime, Lily & Sev xo
