Welcome Dogs!

Standon Calling is for everyone – and their gorgeous dogs.

Since the festival began in 2005 we have welcomed thousands of dogs to enjoy a magical weekend with their owners and can proudly claim to be the most dog-friendly festival in the UK.

See you and your best friend for a fantastic festival weekend together.

Please note that all dogs attending the festival will need to be registered.

Registrations are now OPEN!

Barking Heads

Standon Calling and natural pet food brand Barking Heads are proud to announce an exclusive partnership.

The dog-loving team from Barking Heads will set those tails wagging, by helping make Standon Calling the UK’s first dog friendly festival.

Our four-legged friends will have the chance to enjoy the festival with their very own facilities.

Partying pooches will also be able to purchase their festival food from a special Barking Heads stall.

Dog Wellbeing & Guidelines

We take your dogs’ wellbeing seriously. We want to ensure they enjoy the festival and feel at their best.

In partnership with Barking Heads, there are dog bowl water points across the festival, as well as dog welfare services on offer.

We ask that you register your dog on arrival, providing your contact details (scroll up for the registration form). You’ll also be asked to adhere to the following site rules:

  • Keep your dog on a lead at all times, except for in certain areas which will be signed
  • No dogs are permitted in the designated Kids Area
  • Pick up after your dog and use designated dog bins
  • Take proper care of your dog while at the festival

To help you prepare, Barking Heads have created a handy guide alongside Dog Behaviourist Adem Fehmi which will help you and your dog navigate the festival environment. It’s well worth a read!

The Dog Show

Every dog is invited to take part in our fun, inclusive and beloved annual Dog Show, which takes place on the Sunday of the festival.

Perhaps you’ll even head home with a much-coveted rosette for categories including ‘Dog with the Waggiest Tail’, ‘Looks Most Like Owner’ and many other prizes celebrating dogs of all shapes, sizes and characters.
