Prepare yourself for pooches, pats and plenty of licks at Sydney’s Dog Lovers Show.
Do you find yourself walking down the street only to stop and pat everyone’s dog? Does the sheer sight of a little pup make you weak at the knees, squealing in a high-pitched animal voice? If so, you’re a certified dog lover and need to pencil an important date into your calendar, as the forth annual Dog Lovers Show returns to Sydney.
Running from Saturday 5th to Sunday 6th August at the Royal Hall of Industries and the Hordern Pavilion (from 9.30am till 5pm each day), prepare yourself as over 500 beautiful pooches fill the exhibition space, teamed with 200 plus proud exhibitors.
There’s a whole lot of dog loving activity on offer, including the Royal Canin Arena, which is set to showcase some of Australia’s most talented dogs performing everything from working, frisbee, rescue, scent and more.
In case you’re wondering, there’s also a certified Pat-A-Pooch area, allowing for weekend-long pats, licks and down right good times with some truly cute canine companions.
If you’re in the market for a pooch of your own, a visit to the Rescue Dog Zone is a must. Here you’ll have the unique opportunity to learn all about dog adoption with experts on hand and dozens of rescue groups exhibiting. You’ll discover whether dog adoption is right for you, what’s involved, how to find a suitable pup and how to start the process.
With your heart truly melting, you can next pay a visit to a doggy jumping spectacle from DockDogs. Here you’ll witness only the best form of long jump, for dogs. Pooches of all shapes and sizes will run down a 40′ dock before diving into a pool of water, in which they’re electronically judged for the length of their jump.
Did we also mention that the oh-so-hunky veterinarian Chris Brown will also be making a guest appearance? If that doesn’t make for a motivating force, we’re not sure what will.
The cost of an adult ticket is $25 online and $30 at the door. The cost of a child ticket (aged 5-15) is $12 online and $15 at the door.
Talk about a paw-fect way to spend a weekend.
