Dog Lovers Show

The Dog Lovers Show encapsulates the friendship and unconditional love that we share with our best friends.

More pets live in Australia than people and they continue to be a significant part of our lives. The population of dogs in Australia is around 3.45 million with 36% of households owning a dog – one of the highest incidences of dog ownership per capita on the planet.

Victoria and NSW also have some of the highest rates of dog ownership in the world with over 825,000 and 1.15m registered in each State respectively, accounting for around $1.4bn in revenue for the pet sector.

The Dog Lovers Show presents visitors with a wide array of entertainment, educational and information with highlights including a Breed Showcase, Rescue Dog Zone, Main Arena and Educational Stage, Military Working Dog Tribute, Doggy Bookshop, Pat-A-Pooch, New Products Zone, Perfect Match, Face Painting, free vet and training advice with all the latest and greatest gear to spoil your pooch.

It’s a world-first concept that and almost 40,000 Dog Lovers attended across Melbourne and Sydney at the last two events. Dog lovers gain a greater respect and understanding for the pooch in their life, which in turn provides more rewarding relationships.

The event has now won the awards below at the Exhibition & Events Association of Australasia (EEAA) Awards for Excellence which celebrates the industry’s most outstanding venues, suppliers and organisers:
