What is Pop+Bark?

Pop+Bark is just as much for the dogs as it is for the owners and fellow dog lovers. With off-lead experiences, puppy parties, pupuccino bars, pup boutiques, and a doggy bakery, there are so many exciting events to attend around the UK! It’s also a great place to meet like-minded people and bond over their favourite breeds.

It’s the UK’s most talked-about dog event for a reason!

So, if you’re looking for something a little mad and out of the ordinary to do this year, then take your kids to Pop+Bark! And with events dotted all around the UK, you’re sure to find one near you!

If this company name rings a bell you have seen their event for corgis in our Jubilee-themed event article that we did a couple of years ago. You can find this article under Jubilee Events Near Me.

Why Should I Go To A Pop+Bark Event in 2024?

Why not?!

If you love your dog or love dogs in general there’s no way you’ll want to miss out on this special and safe, off-lead experience. You’ll get plenty of sniffs, licks, and cuddles from all your favourite breeds while watching them interact with one another and have bucketloads of fun.

Whether you want to treat your excitable puppy to a biscuit from the Doggy Bakery or purchase cute accessories from the boutique, this unique event is a real endorphin booster.

Did you know that when humans interact with animals their cortisol levels decrease? Cortisol levels are also known as stress hormones! When we interact with or love animals our heart rate decreases and our dopamine levels gradually rise. Humans, much like dogs, just want to love and be loved, so why would pass up such a magical opportunity? If you’ve recently lost your pet and need some animal contact you should definitely come along too. It could be a very soothing opportunity for you and your family.

And what’s more… There’s even a cocktail bar too! Sip on some fruity seasonal cocktails while your puppies run wild and catch up with your fellow dog lovers. Munch away as you check out the delicious food stations, give your pup a sweet treat and chat the day away with like-minded owners.

What Were The Previous Pop+Bark Events Like?

If we transport ourselves back to the Summer of 2022 you would have seen everything from Jubilee events to Doggy Discos and an urban Beach Party! One of their most recent events was Christmas with the Grinch and of course, we can’t forget about the Golden Retriever cafe in Birmingham last year!

Breed-Specific Events

Looking for the paw-fect event for your breed? It’s a good job Pop+Bark have a flurry of breed-specific events that dogs and their loving owners can attend. Get up to all kinds of mischief from 90’s themed parties in the Cockapoo Cafe (yes, there are spice girl tracks on the playlist don’t worry!) to 80-minute ‘off lead’ indoor social experiences. Dogs can dance, play, eat, socialise, and of course, receive lots of fuss!

All of the breed-specific events have the same activities and fun games, so no puppy will get left out or excluded from activities… Or from the world’s first Pupuccino Bar!

The Pupuccino Bar

Choose from a range of delicious dog-friendly toppings like fresh blueberries, peanut butter sprinkles, bananas, gravy bones and dog jazzies.

For doggos with intolerances, there is also a Pupcorn Bar where you can get other yummy snacks.
