2015 Perth Pet Expo on November 7-8


The Silver Pet Prints Perth Pet Expo is on November 7th and 8th and will offer an extensive line-up for pet lovers of all ages.

After a successful inaugural event in 2014, up to 9000 visitors are expected at the 2015 event.

As well as more than 80 exhibitors, this year’s expo will host the first WA instalment of the national Dock Dogs Competition, the only worldwide ranking sport for dogs. Hosted by Farmer Dave Graham, the event is described by expo organisers as the most entertaining dog sport on earth.

Another highlight of the two-day expo is ambassador Rick Fenny, famous as the official vet of the hit Australian film Red Dog, hosting the Pets and Vets Pet Health and Wellness Corner to share his wealth of knowledge on pet health.

Dr Fenny was an adviser on Red Dog and more recently its prequel Blue Dog, which is set for release next year.

Dr Fenny, who is also the founder of Pets and Vets, is a staunch advocate for preventive pet medicine to ensure longevity.

Fellow expo ambassador, veterinarian behaviourist Dr Kate Lindsey, will share her insights on the behaviours, social and physical needs of pets under the banner of her Kalmpets Dog Stay and Animal Behaviour Centre.

Animal rescue groups will take centre stage at the Mega Adoption Corner. For the first time an outdoor, pet-friendly cafe will be operating.

Pets on a leash are welcome at the expo and if you bring your pooch along you can even treat him or her to a wash at the City Farmers dog wash.

The expo also will host the announcement of the 2015 WA’s Cutest Pets Competition, presented by Habitat.

For those looking for a keep-sake, Silver Pet Prints can take orders for your pet’s footprint in piece of silver jewellery.

When: November 7-8, from 9am-5pm daily

Where: Claremont Showground, Robinson Pavilion
