A snuffle, a snort, and a blemish and there she is.

That’s Lua, adult there, poking her conduct by a embankment – a proprietor during a world’s initial ‘dog glamping’ site during NOS Alive festival in Lisbon, Portugal.

The hills are good and truly alive turn here. A few miles down a highway in a city’s Passeio Marítimo de Algés, they’re alive with a sound of music, a stellar choice of large hitters like Foo Fighters, Depeche Mode, The Weeknd and The xx and providing one of Europe’s many charming and charming end festivals.

Up here though, it’s a carol of barks and howls that inundate Tiago Patel‘s doggy daycare site.

Announced behind in June, NOS Alive’s link-up with Tiago Patel was borne of a elementary idea: because should humans be a usually ones authorised a small escapism over a song festival weekend?

‘Dogs need this space – they need to be dogs,’ Tiago tells metro.co.uk, gesturing to a organisation of pooches squabbling over a pine-cone nearby.

‘It’s like a child, as shortly as they are disobedient it is seen as a problem that contingency be solved, though it’s healthy – they need to be a child, to get it out of their system.’

The grounds is foolproof. Bring your dog to a festival gates during a start of a festival, and they’re whisked off to Tiago’s farm, that hosts propitious pups all year round.

While you’re enjoying a song and stupidity of NOS Alive, a canines get to ramble their really possess festival site, removing behind to their healthy instincts in a same carefree, epicurean ways their owners are enjoying down a road.

With eighteen dogs on-site for a festival’s duration, everywhere we go we’re followed by a tail of during slightest 3 eager-for-a-petting pups.

There’s all ages and breeds here, from a shuffling, podgy aged beagle to a grand Alsatian.

One golden dachshund is quite amorous, flopping herself on anyone who’ll give her some attention. Free love, indeed.

Lua’s a new arrival, usually removing a day sheet for a festival’s shutting day.

She competence have missed out on a likes of Fur Fighters, Bone-obo and Royal Bloodhound over a final few days, though a Saturday night do plays horde to De-paw-che Mode and, er, Fleet Foxes (that one does a terrible punning all by itself).

She’s in her element, leaping about and legging it around a place like a beginner festival sesher, perplexing to locate all during once.

Tiago himself, meanwhile, is as many of a impression as any of a pups in his care. Coming off like a Portuguese long-lost-relative of TV’s Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan, as he walks us by a ten-acre site, his heels swarmed by doting doggies, he enthuses about his surroundings.

It’s not tough to see because – from a far-reaching open plain of grass, to a wire pitch and a large aged fire-pit nestled in a heart of a little woodland, there’s some-more for a dogs here than there are in many humans’ festival campsites, and decidedly fewer pint cups and bottles of wee.

He’s a fixed follower of permitting dogs to live out their healthy instincts, sitting by as they rise their possess hierarchy around him.

At one indicate Lua gets a quick revelation off from a other dogs – clearly they’re not too penetrating on their new partner peaking too early.

Tiago and his handful of helpers stay on-site for a weekend, in a fenced off dilemma of a woods.

As we go to leave, one some-more night of Heineken-fueled hedonism forward of us, he invites us to come move a tent one time, and spend a full weekend with a dogs.

As poetic as a Lisbon hotel competence be, a night with a pooches competence only be adequate to drag us behind to a tinned lager and festival tents of a youth. We’d be barking insane to contend no.
