Dog Lovers Show
For owners, the dog show is the perfect opportunity to meet fellow 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 will cater to both parties with a packed program. Look out for Dockdogs, where dogs compete to make the biggest leaps and fastest fetches in a massive swimming pool.
