Dog show bounds into Brisbane Showgrounds

By Royal International Convention Centre, 3 November, 2017


Two of Australia’s most loved celebrity vets will join more than 10,000 dog devotees at the Royal International Convention Centre (Royal ICC) this weekend, for the Dog Lovers Show.

Dr Chris Brown and Dr Katrina Warren will headline the two day show, which is one of the largest events in the world dedicated to canines, with educational breed talks and entertaining trick dogs.

Featuring more than 500 canines of all sizes and breeds, the Dog Lovers Show will certainly be a pooch paradise – visitors will see everything from skilful dogs performing frisbee tricks to Instagram famous hounds walking the red carpet.

Renowned Hollywood animal trainer Peta Clarke, who has worked on films including Babe and Legally Blonde, will show off her star pups, while visitors will get their paws on plenty of treats to take home to their best friends with more than 150 exhibitors on site.

Brisbane Showgrounds General Manager of Venue Sales and Marketing Jago Coyle said this was the first time the event had been held in Brisbane.

“The Dog Lovers Show has been very popular in both Sydney and Melbourne since 2013, so we’re thrilled the Brisbane Showgrounds has been chosen to host their first Queensland event,” he said.

“We’re certainly no stranger to catering for canines, with an average of 2,200 entries received into the Royal Queensland Show’s (Ekka) Canine Competition each August.”

Gates to the Dog Lovers Show will open at 9.30am tomorrow.

The Brisbane Showgrounds precinct is located just 1.5km from Brisbane’s CBD and is

Queensland’s largest indoor / outdoor events site
