With multiple stages, both inside and outside the impressive facility, attendees will enjoy world championship caliber events such as dock diving and disc dog. They can also see amazing dogs compete in fly ball, rally obedience, treibball, barn hunt and agility, just to name a few. World Dog Expo will also feature an exciting breed showcase area, highlighting over one hundred breeds known from all over the world. A world championship grooming competition will spotlight the art of pet grooming as never seen before. And the show will work to promote dog rescue, fostering and adoption.
Aside from the spectator events, World Dog Expo will include educational seminars on proper care and nutrition, pet first aid, as well as other classes for pet owners. It will also feature industry specific classes for professionals in the pet care industry.
For some, the main attraction of World Dog Expo will be the notable tradeshow event, featuring a huge array of dog–centered products across hundreds of booths. The tradeshow will be positioned throughout the two main halls, plus an outdoor events area. Attendees will be able to find the newest and best products for their canine companions. Participating vendors will benefit from the unprecedented exposure created for the event.
