Melbourne Dog Lovers Show 2021
A three-day pet expo with a dedicated puppy patting zone.
In 2021, the Royal Exhibition Building is set to be overrun with pooches of every shape and size. Returning for another year, the Melbourne Dog Lovers Show usually welcomes more than 200 exhibitors and upwards of 30,000 visitors. Whether you're in the market for a new family pet or are just looking for a bit of a cuddle, you won't find a more adorable event in Melbourne. Obviously, cat people need not apply.
Taking place between Friday, October 22–Sunday, October 24, this year's show includes a number of special events for guests on two legs and four. There'll also be a doggy pool show and a parade of famous Instagram puppers, while celebrity vets typically run seminars on canine health. Several of Victoria's dog shelters will also be there, with no shortage of rescued animals looking for permanent homes.
Oh, and in case that doesn't make your heart melt, they've also got a dedicated puppy patting zone.
A note: while the Dog Lovers Show is all about dogs and features dogs, it isn't for dogs to attend — so you'll need to leave your own pooch at home.
