Don't try to explain HooperFest to a non dog person, they just won't understand "It's a bit like your holiday Sandra, except there's lots of dogs, great friends, fun activities, hundreds of competitive classes, live entertainment, plenty of socialising, lots of laughter, maybe a bit of sunbathing but no...there's not a spa!"
Are you ready for the biggest hoopers event in the United Kingdom?
Friday 26th July – Sunday 4th August
Hose, Leicestershire, LE14 4JR
It’s entirely what YOU want it to be! It is YOUR hoopers holiday so you’re free to do as much or as little as you like, pick and choose from competition, training, socialising, participating in activities, chilling with friends, sharing meals and laughing until your sides hurt. It is entirely up to you how much you get involved or how much you sit back and chill out.
HooperFest is held in the beautiful Vale of Belvoir, at a new site for 2024, camping is available for tents, motorhomes and caravans with toilets, showers and catering available
First off, there’s plenty of competing, 7 days to be exact. And new for 2024 is the welcome addition of our Grand Finals into the first weekend of HooperFest so the competition just got HOT!
On top of that there’s hoopers training workshops for all levels as well as HooperStar Awards testing, pack walk and other dog activity training options like Scentwork, tricks, conditioning or mantrailing.
For the dogs there’s doggy massage from our on site qualified Vet Physio and for the handlers (and spouses!) there’s Thai Massage from a highly trained therapist.
In the evenings you can join us for live music, dancing, singalongs, craft workshops, quizzes, bingo and boardgames. Cowboy night is back with a buck! And of course, our customary midweek day off which features the HooperFest Special Olympics and new for 2024 a teddy bears picnic!
