Dog Lovers Show
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
The Dog Lovers Show, after a brief paw-se, is coming back to Melbourne in 2021
The next Dog Lovers Show was meant to go ahead at the Royal Exhibition Building in May 2020, but in light of recent events, the show has since been rescheduled....twice. That means Melburnians will still be able to get their doggo fix, though they'll have to wait just a little longer.
For dog owners, this dog show is the perfect opportunity to meet fellow crazy dog people and for aspiring dog owners, the event is a great chance to live vicariously through those lucky enough to have a furry pal in their lives. The event caters to both parties with a packed program.
Lots of Dog Lovers Show favourites are coming back including the Breed Showcase, where more than 40 breeds will be on show to educate the public on the unique traits of each breed from huge Mastiffs to sweet Finnish Lapphunds.
Your day will be made at the popular Pat-a-Pooch Zone, where visitors of all ages can meet some new furry friends, and at the Insta-Pooch Zone where social media's most famous pups will front the pup-parazzi and meet their adoring fans. DockDogs is one for the aquatic pooches, where dogs compete to make the biggest leaps and fastest fetches in a massive swimming pool outside the building.
Reminding dog lovers that it's always better to adopt and not shop, rescue groups will come together at the Dog Adoption Zone to help Melbourne's pooches find loving forever homes.
On the day there will be plenty of exhibitor stalls to peruse, selling all things from treats to toys and outfits. The main stage will have talks from experienced vets and there will be food and drink stalls for when you're all puppered out.
Tickets purchased for the original dates have been refunded, with tickets for the 2021 show to go on sale once the situation improves in a few months time.
