The Dog Lovers Show will encapsulate the friendship and unconditional love that we share with man's (women's and kids!) best friend.
Our Dogs are not just pets, they are family members. Dogs are loved by world leaders, celebrities and everyday people. They save lives, provide assistance, deter burglars, work the land, star in movies and are an integral part of everyday life.
Dog ownership teaches children responsibility and helps them develop their social and nurturing skills. From providing simple companionship, stress relief, curing loneliness and as a means of social interaction, it is widely accepted that Dogs provide us with extensive benefits. It’s time to celebrate our dogs!
The Dog Lovers Show is a world-first event that will encapsulate the friendship and unconditional love that we share with our self-proclaimed ‘best friends’.
The iconic Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton provides the perfect venue for this ‘Festival of the Pooch’, which will be held from Friday 3 to Sunday 5 May. Event Management International are organising the event and are expecting in excess of 20,000 dog lovers to attend from around Victoria to celebrate them like never before.
Dog lovers will be entertained and educated with a range of interactive opportunities including a Puppy School, Breed Showcase and Rescue Dog Adoption Zone (http://dogloversshow.com.au/rescue-dog-zone/) with a major Dog Art Portrait Competition (The ‘Archie Bark’ Prize), Expert Seminars, high-energy demonstrations in the Main Arena that will WOW visitors, over 200 Exhibitors and loads more! Kids can even get one of their favourite dog breeds painted on their face!
It’s the perfect day out for any dog lover (you don’t even need to own a dog!) as this family-friendly event will not only put a smile on the face of every visitor but ensure they leave with a greater respect and understanding for the pooch in their life. And this in turn will help provide more rewarding relationships.
Founder and Show Director, Jason Humphris, says the Dog Lovers Show goes way beyond the offering of traditional pet expo’s or competition-based dog events – our objective was to create something completely unique that not only celebrated dogs, but acknowledged just how much they contribute to us on a personal level and throughout the community.
“I have lived with and loved dogs all my life and also spent the majority of my career in the event business - so the Dog Lovers Show combines two of my true passions. Australia has one of the highest rates of dog ownership in the world, but there was no event dedicated to this love and our research clearly showed that on the whole, we know very little about these beautiful animals that live with us. So the Show not only offers an incredibly fun day-out experiencing all the amazing talents of our dogs, but will help raise our understanding of them through education. So we look forward to welcoming all the dog lovers out there to the first event” said Humphris.
