Details

Discover the majestic wolves, stunning painted dogs and sleek dhole as Howletts dedicates the weekend to the park's wild dogs. Embark on a fun trail, enjoy dedicated talks and take part in special challenges.

Find out all about our African and Asian hunting dogs in our educational talks. Learn some of the differences between hunting dogs and hyenas and dholes and foxes as well as hearing all about their gruesome hunting techniques.

Then take a walk to the Education Centre where you can take part in a game to find out the similarities and differences between domesticated dogs and wild dogs and wolves. There will also be some canid themed wordsearchers and crosswords to get stuck into.
