Too far for us to go, sadly. Looks like a grand day out though.
Traquair in the Borders has a smaller event for dogs (& owners) on 15 July. Nearest campsite likely to be at Peebles.

Wow! All booked up for 2022! I'm still about 2 months away from even thinking about our first outing.

I bet Bean is enjoying it all though, I know our Benji used to. He used to love going on our trips with the caravan. As soon as he saw me open the back of the car up he would try to get in.

Both our dogs loved it too, it's not the same without them. No more having to go walkies in horrible weather, no more mud everywhere - I miss them.

I have made enquiries for 2023 already, can't book the sites yet though, I wonder why!

Bean likes camping and I can't wait to go out and about with him again.

Done the Kent PITP a few times, but as a 'working' visit, the Border Collie rescue charity I got my dog from used to have a stand there which I helped staff, and my dog acted as a Ambassador for the charity and was also on the stand. Being a working attendance I didn't get to spend too much time actually seeing the attractions, other than my brief lunch break and the odd dog 'comfort break', but seemed to be a fair variety of demos and exhibitions, and a vast range of stands marketing doggy stuff, many of the dog welfare and rescue charities also had stands. Probably enough there to spend quite a few hours watching and wandering around. No surprise, it is absolutely jam packed with dogs, and the vast majority seem to get along really well! Probably sensory overload for the dogs! - all those strange doggy smells, and endless foody and treaty odours wafting around, expect a very tired dog after the show! I certainly had a chorus of doggy snoring on the two hour drive home!

Sadly don't do it any more, the personal financial cost to the volunteers of attending and setting up and dismantling the stand far, far, exceeded the pittance of funds raised at the show, we'd have raised 3 or 4 times the amount if the handful of volunteers just pooled our fuel costs for attending! Seems no one wanted to help rescue Border Collies! - and the most disinterested and tightfisted were the pedigree Collie owners attending!

Never camped there, so can't comment on that aspect. Bit too far away (mostly the need to drive half of M25, which I hate, rather than absolute distance) for a personal day visit, so not likely to attend.
