The Dog Lovers Show returns after a three-year hiatus, with guests such as Dr. Katrina Warren, Kelly Gill and The Wonderdogs due to appear.

The show will take place at Sydney Showground on 6 and 7 August, and in Melbourne at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre on 14 to 16 October.

Jason Humphries, Show Founder and CEO, said the timing of the show is ideal to provide thousands of pandemic pet parents with trusted, reliable information from the country’s most trusted pet experts.

“Many new dog owners had been thinking of welcoming a new pup and the pandemic gave them the time to be actively present at home to ‘on-board’ the pooch they have dreamed of for so long. A huge thanks to our loyal Exhibitors who have stuck by us and to the dog loving community who are clearly excited to be returning to our live events with pre-sale tickets selling out in record time!”

Along with Dr. Katrina Warren, Kelly Gill and The Wonderdogs, there will be educational talks at the Ask-A-Breeder, Adoption, and Main Stages with some of Australia’s leading dog and animal experts including Rose Horton, Dr. Jo Righetti, and Lara Shannon.

Australian Working Dog Rescue’s canines will participate in the extreme high jump competition, while starring at the Sydney show will be the NSW Police Force Dog and Mounted Command, who will provide live dog demonstrations showcasing their amazing abilities.

Potential pet parents will be able to discover the breed most suitable to their home and lifestyle at the Bow Wow Meow Perfect Match Zone with breed information posters and a K9 matching survey.
