There are plenty of fantastic events in the Cotswolds this summer, and many can be enjoyed with man’s best friend in tow. Mark Lewis, Managing Director of Cotswold RAW, the biologically appropriate raw food for dogs, talks us through what’s coming up for you and the family to attend

The Dogs Trust open day, Stratford Racecourse (June 25)

Hosted at Stratford Racecourse, the annual Dogs Trust open day has plenty to offer those who seek entertainment with the family and their four-legged friend. On Sunday June 25 expect a delightful dog show featuring plenty of demonstrations and displays, alongside refreshments, a giant tombola and stalls to browse. There is even a chance to meet some of the Dogs Trust dogs!

The Cotswold Show, Cirencester Park (July 1 and 2)

Set in 100 acres of stunning Cotswold countryside at Cirencester Park, The Cotswold Show offers families the perfect day out on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 July. Browse 200 trade shopping stands, admire culinary skills at the cookery theatre and enjoy a traditional rural skills showcase. There will also be Horseman of the Knight Jousting, Jump4Heroes skydiving, World of Dogs, the Cotswold Alpaca Experience and The Cotswold Reindeer Herd all to enjoy! Book tickets here.

BBC Countryfile Live, Blenheim Palace (August 3 – 5)

Following the great success of the event last year, Countryfile Live will return to the beautiful Blenheim Palace. From Thursday August 3 to Sunday August 6, guests can enjoy live arena shows, hands-on-activities, animal displays, debates, food, drink and shopping, all of course, showcasing what visitors love most about our glorious countryside. The four day extravaganza is the perfect way to celebrate our countryside with the family – and the dog too! Book tickets here.

The Moreton-in-Marsh Show (September 2)

‘Farming, food, fun and fashion.’ Sound good? Well the Moreton-in-Marsh Show is definitely your bag! On September 2, the popular agricultural show returns to town with plenty for all the family to see, do and taste. Take a wander around the 350 trade stands selling everything from delicious locally sourced produce and luxury clothing to combine harvesters. After a spot of shopping, enjoy a bevy of thrilling entertainment including a vintage tractor display, dancing sheep and the yellow diggers from JCB, and much more. Book tickets here.

These wonderful events are made all of the more exciting when the dog can come along to. Cotswold RAW will be in attendance at each event hoping to meet like-minded dog owners who are interested in the natural way of feeding their pet.

Visitors to their stand can expect expert nutritional advice as well as the chance to purchase Cotswold RAW sausages and mince, all wrapped up in elegant packaging, and dry treats perfect for your pooch to tuck into on the day.

Over two years, and with a passion for dog care, Mark Lewis and his team source local produce when they can, making their products in-house and strive to ensure that Cotswold RAW is as convenient as grabbing a bowlful of processed dry food from a ‘bag under the stairs’. The natural product has plenty of health benefits; the sausages contain 80% meat and 20% fresh, seasonal vegetables for instance, and are free from additives and preservatives.
