Gift Guides | Press Article 17/04/24

  • Treasure those special moments with your four-legged companion and come along to the dog event unlike any other at the Goodwood Estate.
  • Goodwoof will take place Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May 2024.
  • Tickets start from £30 and can be purchased at from Monday 9 October.

Goodwoof offers a superb day out for dogs of all shapes and sizes, and their humans. With breathtaking Barkour stunts, rapid Flyball relays, famous faces, world-class demonstrations and brilliant Barkitecture kennel designs, tickets to Goodwoof makes the perfect gift this Christmas. 

A true celebration of all things dog, The Kennels at the Goodwood Estate opens its doors to visitors and their hounds to enjoy a weekend full of activities. Around the event, visitors can get stuck-in at the Action Sports Area – which transforms into a boogie wonderland for the Ministry of Hound – enter into the Fastest Dog Competition, have a splash at Fido’s Lido and teach an old dog new tricks in the Have-a-go area.

Visitors can take the time to relax in Literary Corner, peruse stunning kennel designs in Barkitecture, enjoy the perfect picnic from Fortnum & Mason, and bask in the glorious sunshine at the Taittinger Champagne Bar. 

Last year’s event welcomed a host of famous faces – all joined by their beloved dogs - including Bill Bailey, Charlie Mackesy, Clare Balding, Curtis Pritchard, Guy Henry, Kevin McCloud, Peter Crouch, Scott Miller and Zak Abel amongst many others.

Our new Christmas gift bundle is now available to purchase from £90, offering two adult tickets and a Goodwoof walking kit – the perfect festive gift for dog lovers.
