There will also be a 'dogstacle' course, shopping, expert advice, a dog show and refreshments.

Also new this year is the puppy socialisation walk for those with new additions to the family - puppies can be introduced to others in a safe environment.

Charity partners such as Dogs Trust will be on hand reaching out to those considering rehoming a dog or fundraising.

Nicole Cooper, managing director of touchpoint live media - the organiser of the Big Dog Walk said: "We have been blown away by the support for our Big Dog Walks which have taken place across the country over the past few weekends.

"It has been a wonderful opportunity for people to get together.

"The relaxed and joyful atmosphere we have witnessed has been a powerful reminder that events like this nourish our souls and have been a gaping hole in our lives.

"Harewood House is such an idyllic venue and we can’t wait to welcome those faithful companions who have kept us going though lockdown and provide them with the pawesome day they deserve!”.

All walks are being staggered for the safety of those taking part.
