Last year’s event was a big success which saw a record number of visitors enjoy the stunningly beautiful scenery of Benacre Estate and be entertained by our arena displays, have-a-go activities and trade stands. Strutt Your Mutt is becoming a larger and more popular event each year. It is a great way to celebrate our canine companions with family, friends and of course the dogs in our lives.

This event is a tremendous and proven opportunity to reach a high attendance of local people. By bringing your business to this event you are showing your support for a very worthy cause – Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Our target audience is anyone who enjoys our beautiful Suffolk countryside and loves dogs. Visitor numbers from 2014 - 2017 were in excess of 2000 each year made up of people of all ages.

Strutt your Mutt will be heavily promoted in all local publications including Lets’s Talk and the EDTA’s Suffolk magazine as well as on local radio. A free pre-event program will be distributed throughout the area and there will be event banners, road signs. We also have many followers on Facebook and Twitter.

If you are a local business or sell anything doggy/country related this is your chance to reach your selected audience, build awareness, communicate your unique selling point or spotlight your services. You could launch a new product and sell existing stock, distribute literature and answer questions, do demonstrations, create an event special offer, get customer details, generate leads and build alliances with others exhibiting at the event.
