Come and join the fun and celebrate this quirky festival where, for one day of the year, all dogs in Nepal are treated royally. Tell your friends and bring a crowd - all are welcome!

Doug Scott and Celia Washington have championed the event in the UK and over the past seven years have led these special walks at Dalemain, Lowther, Sizergh Castle and at Hutton in the Forest.

Mr and Mrs Robert Hasell-McCosh have welcomed us back to Dalemain this year where everyone is invited to meet in the courtyard for registration at 2:00 pm before setting off on the walk at 2:30 pm.

After registration everyone will receive a glass of wine and a Buddhist prayer scarf and each dog will receive a garland and a biscuit. 

Your suggested donation is £12.00 online if you want to book early or £15.00 on the day - your donation is for 1 dog bringing 2 people. Suggested additional donation for each extra dog or person in the group is £5.00. Children are free. Donate via Eventbrite here

The walk will be along a track to Dacre village and the Church of St. Andrews where a short service and blessing will take place before everyone wanders back to Dalemain.
