Did you know dogs are welcome at Amelia Trust Farm? With lots of open space and a woodland to explore, it’s the perfect place for the whole family to enjoy a day out – four-legged friends included!
This summer we are incredibly excited to be hosting a Dog Show in partnership with Blue Ridge Canine Academy! Enter competitions (or just watch), enjoy demonstrations by the team at Blue Ridge Canine Academy, meet business owners who love dogs as much as you, and explore the grounds of Amelia Trust Farm.

Best Sausage Catcher
Does your dog live for treats? Is food their favourite time of the day? We suspect our sausage catching competition is just the right competition for you… No practice necessary (although we’re sure your pooch would enjoy getting in the spirit of the game.
Best in Show
Time for your pup to shine! Old or young, cute or chaotic, stubborn or silly, enter your dog in our Scruffs competition and see if they’ll win Best Male, Best Female, or Best Overall.
What else will be going on during the Dog Show at Amelia Trust Farm?

What is there to do at Amelia Trust Farm?
While you’re at the Farm, make the most of the open space and glorious woodland. While dogs will need to be on leads when they aren’t competing, our woodland is ideal for a dog walk. There are plenty of paths to follow and interesting textures and smells, so make sure you bring shoes that’ll allow you to go for an adventure.
‘I love bringing Neo to the farm, he is always excited when he realises this is where we have come for our walk. The woodlands are peaceful for me and give Neo lots to sniff and explore, the outdoor animals give his brain lots to think about too and I take home a happy & tired dog’Sam, a regular dog walker at the Farm
Please remember to pick up your poo!
