A Doggy Day Out

days out that leave a paw print on your heart

We’re delighted to have teamed up with A Doggy Day out this year, to support their fantastic dog-focused events across Devon & Cornwall.

Owned and run by self-confessed dog lover, Jo Macaskie, A Doggy Day Out was born from her pure love of dogs, and her inspiration to put together the ultimate in doggy day out events for hounds and humans alike.

After a paws for thought back in early 2017, while running her vintage and lifestyle events business, Jo had a light bulb moment. Organising dedicated doggy-based events felt like it could be a natural addition to the business, appealing to anyone who considers their dog family, and not just a pet.

But it was no coincidence. Jo’s life had recently become healthier and happier with the introduction of Max, a gorgeous 3-month old Collie/Lurcher rescue dog from Gables Farm rehoming centre in Plymouth.

By establishing a brand new business, Jo, inspired as a dog owner, turned a doggy bag of ideas into reality and developed a whole new venture. Now, she has a heart-warming, canine-loving company, devoted to days out for dog people, and run by dog people.

Each event gives you and your family the opportunity to get involved in agility challenges, the temptation alley challenge, dog shows just for fun & more.
