Melbourne Dog Lovers Show 2022
Melbourne's three-day dog expo is back — and so is its dedicated puppy patting zone.
March 09, 2022
In 2022, Melbourne Exhibition Centre is set to be overrun with pooches of every shape and size. Heading by for cute canine cuddles, 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 to spend a day in the most adorable way possible, you won't find a better event in Melbourne. Obviously, cat people need not apply.
Taking place between Friday, October 14–Sunday, October 16, 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, a parade of famous Instagram puppers, and a paws and prosecco bar, while celebrity vets will 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.
