Australia’s first national pet show is making its debut in Adelaide on 18-19 May at the Adelaide Showgrounds.

This marks the fifth show since The Per Show launched in 2022 and will include a line up of more than 120 experts and exhibitors.

The event will follow the successful multi-zone format that has received a positive response at its previous events in Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne. It will feature a range of experts including author, pet expert and director of Hills Wildlife Sanctuary, Ben Dessen, Dr Katrina Warren and Kelly Gill along with the Wonderdogs and Debra Millikan from the Pet Professional Guild of Australia.

There will also be a large range of exhibitors including Refuresh, Edenhills, RSPCA South Australia, Canine Connect, DOG by Dr Lisa, The Pet Butcher and more as well as entertainment and activities from face painting and a kids agility course to scent work demonstrations and meet and greets with the famous Bluey and Bingo.

Managing Director, Cameron Just, is looking forward to bringing The Pet Show to Adelaide.

“Following the success of our shows across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane we’re excited to be adding a new event to our roster that will allow us to help Adelaide residents immerse themselves in all things pets. With a rate of dog ownership that is higher than the national average, it was clear to us that Adelaide was the perfect addition to our show line-up.

“There is no other pet event like this in Adelaide, so we’re excited to see the response from the community. We’re committed to championing positive pet parenting for both traditional and non-traditional pets and are grateful for the support we’ve had to date which has made expanding our show possible.”
