We are very sorry to announce that we are unable to hold Essex Dog Day in 2022.  Many of our volunteers are unavailable due to other commitments and circumstances beyond their control which will make it very difficult to deliver the event that people would expect.  Wishing all of the Dogs in Essex a fun and happy summer.

Great day out for all the family

Essex Dog Day is for dog owners, enthusiasts or just families looking for a great day out. Come along with your dog. Or just come along; you don't need a dog to attend!

Essex Dog Day is fun dog day with many classes, demonstrations and entertainments. As well as all the dog-related fun we have lots of other activities and plenty of food so you and your family can make a real day of it.

We are open to the public at 10.00am until 5.00pm in the beautiful grounds of Crix, Hatfield Peverel, a privately owned Georgian house accessed directly off the A12. It's easy to get to from all over Essex and parking is free. I've added this text

Enter or spectate the loads of competitions in two Companion Show rings, the Children’s Arena, the lake and other competition areas with classes ranging from the finest pedigree dogs to canines with more endearing or amusing appeal. And there is Agility and various Scurries too. Click here for more information.
