Pet the vets at the show for dog lovers

The Gympie Times - - HOME -

HERE IS a chance for Queens­lan­ders to get their paws on two of the most fa­mous vets in the coun­try dur­ing this year’s Dog Lovers Show.

Vets Chris Brown (pic­tured, left) and Ka­t­rina War­ren have con­firmed they will be on deck at the Novem­ber 4 and 5 event at the Bris­bane Show­ground.

They will star on the celebrity pet stage along with renowned Hol­ly­wood an­i­mal trainer Peta Clarke, who will en­ter­tain the crowd with her pooches.

The tal­ented ca­nines from Aus­tralian Work­ing Dog Res­cue In­ter­na­tional will also help ed­u­cate and en­ter­tain.

Dog Lovers Show has grown to be­come one of the largest events in the world ded­i­cated to dogs and their own­ers.

The in­au­gu­ral Bris­bane show will present 500-plus beau­ti­ful dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds, about 150 ex­hibitors, 30-plus res­cue groups and more than 40 breed clubs.

Or­gan­is­ers are ex­pect­ing more than 10,000 dog lovers to at­tend.

The res­cue dog zone will give vis­i­tors an op­por­tu­nity to meet and in­ter­act with a num­ber of res­cue groups and shel­ters from through­out Queens­land.

Event-go­ers can also meet some of the pooches look­ing for a home.

Aus­tralian mil­i­tary work­ing dogs of the past 100 years will also be ac­knowl­edged, and Aus­tralian War An­i­mal Memo­rial Or­gan­i­sa­tion pres­i­dent Nigel All­sopp will present sem­i­nars about the his­tory of our four-legged dig­gers.

Vis­i­tors can buy pur­ple pop­pies to com­mem­o­rate the ser­vice of war an­i­mals. All funds are do­nated to Mil­i­tary Work­ing Dogs and their han­dlers to as­sist with treat­ing post-trau­matic stress.

There will even be an insta-pooch zone where vis­i­tors can snap self­ies and meet some of Queens­land’s most fa­mous ca­nine In­sta­gram stars.

And prospec­tive dog own­ers who are not sure which dog will best suit them can visit the per­fect match zone.
