About the Show

The Brisbane Dog Lovers Show will be the happiest place on Earth this 4 and 5 November! The multi award-winning festival returns even bigger and better in 2017 with a huge array of canine-based entertainment, education and information that is heaven for Dog lovers!

Here are just a few highlights...

The programs for the Royal Canin Arena and KONG Celebrity Vet Stage are live now featuring Dr Chris Brown, Dr Katrina Warren & The Wonderdogs, our Hero Dog Ambassador and Neighbours star Andrew Morley plus Hollywood animal trainer Peta Clarke!

A new feature to the show, Insta-Pooch will bring a bit of Hollywood glamour to the event as some of Brisbane's most famous Dogs on Instagram are interviewed by the media then walk the red carpet to interact with their loyal fans!

Discover an incredible Breed Showcase, providing visitors with a unique opportunity to meet and learn more about a wide array of canines of all shapes, sizes and personalities. The Perfect Match feature sponsored by Bow Wow will also help visitors find the most suitable Dog breeds for them and their lifestyle with a wide range of information posters and a Breed Selector questionnaire. Dogs Queensland is also bringing you the Ask-A-Breeder Stage where you can hear from registered breeders, experts on their particular breed of Dog and gather all the information you need to make the right decision on your next pooch. The Military Working Dog Tribute also returns to our shows to acknowledges the incredible contribution these Dogs have made in war.

Connecting with Dogs is a smile-inducing, endorphin-releasing activity for kids and adults alike, so don’t miss the Dog Adoption Zone and Pat-A-Pooch area for education on Dog adoption and a serious cuddle-fix. You can also visit the Rescue Dog Art Exhibit to study the faces of 100 Brisbane Rescue Dogs painted with incredible detail by Stephen Gallagher.

You can also see, compare & buy hundreds of the latest & greatest Doggy products & services under hundreds of Exhibitors, New Product launches and exclusive Show Specials to save you money! There’s also free Doggy Face Painting, an Ask-A-Vet Zone offering free vet advice from Greencross experts and some of Brisbane's best food trucks for those looking to fuel up for a pooch-packed weekend!

It’s the ultimate day out for Dog Lovers of all ages and a once a year opportunity to celebrate the companionship, unconditional love and joy that our furry friends bring to our lives every day. And don’t forget to enter the Ultimate Doggy Door Prize at the show to go into the draw to WIN amazing prizes for you and your Pooch! We hope to see you there.
