The Dogstival Lounge

The team at Dogstival think it’s important to help everyone learn and understand a bit more about the canine world and environment around us. Our ‘Lounge’ will host a range of brilliantly insightful and thought provoking guest speakers across the weekend.

The Dogstival Lounge will be hosted by BBC Radio's Anna Webb. One half of the Barking Blondes with Jo Good, Anna co-presents the only radio show dedicated to dogs in Europe, BBC Radio London's 'The Barking Hour'. This weekly slot has become the definite voice of canines on the airwaves, attracting a vast array of celebrities eager to talk dog. You can catch the show every Thursday 3 - 4pm 94.9FM, online and digital.

Join Anna and guests, to understand more about responsible dog ownership in the New Forest. From its delicate ecosystem and the wildlife that live there. Also taking the stage will be amazing charities, local organisations and experts in all things dog related to tell you about their work and answer any questions you have.

We all care about our pets, but knowing more about how our dogs should behave around wild animals or watching out for bird nesting seasons will give us the knowledge to become better owners.
