Described as the ultimate "feel-good event for Corgis", other highlights to look forward to include a designated "Chill Zone" for nervous or older Corgis and guests, an 80 minute "off lead" social experience for dogs, and access to secret guest-only doggy discounts.

Anushka Fernando, who has organised the event, told The Metro: "Our breed-specific events are known to be the perfect way to socialise your dog and we decided to host our very first Corgi event to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee. Corgis have long been her favourite breed and what better way to honour her.

"This is a day for Corgis, Owners and Corgi fans alike with lots to sniff and explore, treats and pupuccinos on arrival, playtime with fellow Corgis and heaps of fuss from the dog-loving humans coming."
