Ready, set, pet! It’s the most wonderful time of the year as the Canadian Pet Expo opens its doors at the International Centre March 30th through April 1, 2018 to celebrate and educate everything “pet”. This Spring’s event marks the first of five shows happening throughout the year and the 6th annual for the Canadian Pet Expo . Grant and Yvonne Crossman, the brains and heart behind the Canadian Pet Expo has planned an event that promises to supersede previous shows by introducing interactive, challenging events for all pets, not just the pooches, people; that’s right – from bunny’s to guinea pigs, cats and dogs – all are welcome to join in this day of fun and excitement!
This year features a “small animal” village, best dressed contest as well as the Wellness SPCA will be in their spay/neuter truck to host a MicroChip clinic. But that’s not all! No high profile event is complete without its celebs! Providing the entertainment and the down-lo will be Jennifer Valentine as the master of ceremonies along with special guests Dr. Clayton Greenlamp and Michelle Romanov from the Dragon’s Den will also make an appearance.
One of the best pics I have of my daughter is an aerial view of her lying back with a huge smile on her face in a ball pit. The CPE is going to have a ball pit/ foam pit for the pooches and I’d love to have a side by side framed pic of my two “kids” ; Sofi with her arms stretched out, Titan on his back with his paws in the air and both of them with huge smiles on their faces!
If you and your fur friend tend to be more competitive, there’s plenty for you to do. K9 agility courses, the Ontario Dock Dogs CPE series, Flyball NAFA and weight pulling with trainers. However, if you’re more about strutting your stuff on the catwalk versus the court, there is a “Best Dressed” competition where you can flaunt your foxy fur.
The competitive streak isn’t all for the guests of honor. The Mystery Groom event is a 3 hour event where you can sign up your pooch for a grooming and the best groomer will be selected from the bunch!
There’s a lot of great things to see and do this year at the Canadian Pet Expo.
