The “Festival of Dogs” occurs during the Tihar Festival in Nepal. It’s a day dedicated entirely to our furry friends, where dogs, both strays and pets, get adorned with flower garlands and marked with red on their foreheads. These things are believed to bring good luck and happiness.

These faithful companions are also rewarded with feasts of rice, meat and dog treats. It’s a heartwarming festival that celebrates the loyalty and bond between dogs and people.

UK Truffle Festival

The UK Truffle Festival is a celebration of all things truffle, foraging and of course, dogs! In the Truffle Dog Championships, dogs compete to find truffle baits hidden above and under ground. 

This unique event showcases the strong bonds between dog and handler, as they work together to locate truffle baits for the chance to win a prize.
