A Dogs’ Day Out at Traquair

16th July at 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

It’s going to be doggy heaven again as Traquair holds its second Dogs’ Day Out Event in July this year. After the great success last year we will be welcoming all dogs, their owners and those who love them.

The highlight of the day is our Companion Dog Show with classes such as owner who looks most like their dog, fastest sausage eater, obedience classes, best rescue dog and categories for children and adults.

We are also delighted to have the Bow Wow Mini Circus with Bethany Martin who will be showing off her talented dogs and some wonderful tricks. There will even be a chance to learn how to teach your own dogs some new tricks. Dog Agility Demonstrations will be provided by Dryburgh Dog Agility and you are invited to have a go on their super agility course.

Terrier Racing is also a great activity to watch and Ore Country Terriers will be demonstrating with their superfast dogs on the avenue.

In the old walled garden you will find a number of stands selling a wide range of dog accessories, treats and advice on dog care as well as some treats for humans from the 1745 Cottage Restaurant and other homemade delights.

When your dog needs a little exercise you can take a gentle stroll around the extensive grounds or go walking in the woods with storyteller, Mary Kenny, who will be telling a few Shaggy Dog stories, then take part in our Doggy Treasure Hunt in the Maze.

If you want to make the most of your visit you can also visit Traquair House itself and discover its extraordinary history – a dog crèche is provided!

Full Schedule of events and classes will be available on this website soon.

Admission: £8.00 Adults £4.00 Concessions & Dogs Go Free (entry to house included – dog crèche provided!)
