MK’s biggest pooch party returns this May

Posted 21st March 2024

Loved by canines and their families for over a decade, the Big Doggie Do is paws-itively the city’s favourite annual celebration of all-things dog.

The free event organised by The Parks Trust, the charity caring for MK’s parks, returns to Willen Lake on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May – midday ‘til 5pm on both days. This year’s two-day event promises to have more fun than you can throw (and fetch) a stick at, including:

  • Doggie displays
  • Showing classes
  • Flyball
  • Pet supplies
  • Delicious treats (for pooches and people!)
  • Local charities
  • And new for 2024, a Talks Tent programme of tutorials & demonstrations

Julie Dawes, Events & Community Engagement Manager at The Parks Trust says “We’re so thrilled to provide local dog owners with a chance to come together with their pets and have fun, whilst picking up tips about how to care for them responsibly”.

Big Doggie Do is one of the most popular events in The Parks Trust calendar and a true celebration of one of the largest park user groups – dog walkers and owners.
