Can I bring my dog to the Great Yorkshire Show?
Although we love dogs, we operate a strict no dog’s policy for visitors (apart from assistance dogs or those competing).
- Over 44,000 visitors attend the show each day meaning most main avenues are very crowded and unsuitable for visitors walking dogs.
- Over 8,500 animals including livestock and horses are on the showground, some of whom can be agitated by dogs and vice versa.
- Unfortunately not all dog owners clear up dog waste after them which could present a hygiene issue for other visitors.
- Dogs are not allowed to remain in cars in the car parks due to the risk of heat exhaustion, the same if they were walking around the showground on hot days.
- Be kind to your dogs, leave them at home.
