There will also be more information on Orvis’ famous dog beds, unrivalled for quality and made with care in the UK’s chalk stream hub, Hampshire.
The schedule includes speakers offering a range of different advice pieces, Q&A’s, live interviews and training tips to assist new dog owners and those interested in learning more:

Brian Campbell-Kearsey, Marketing Director at Orvis UK said: “As a company, we love dogs and want to communicate the many benefits they bring. Dogs are a key part of our lifestyle and we love them like family members – when it came to choosing the name for this festival, the bold statement of ‘We Love Dogs’ just fitted.”
He continued, “We want to communicate the companionship a dog brings whether on the river bank, as part of the family and the added health wellbeing benefits they bring to their owners. We decided to launch the first ‘Orvis We Love Dogs Virtual Festival’, during this difficult time, to celebrate and offer interesting content during lockdown. We hope this will be a fun and educational fortnight for our customers and followers.”
