So much to see, so much to do at Pet Lover Show Feb. 23 and 24

Whether you’re welcoming a new pet to your family, you already know the joy that pets can bring or you simply love all things pets, the year’s must-see show is coming to Abbotsford.

The annual Pet Lover Show – a festival for all things pet – comes to Tradex Feb. 23 and 24.

“We try to offer good information about different pets, and lots of ideas about what people can do with their pets, from fun activities to everything you need to keep them happy and healthy,” explains show founder Nanette Jacques. “We try to cater to everyone. Essentially, everything you need for your pet is at our show.”

  1. Learn from those who know: “The Pet Lover Show is a fun opportunity to talk to the experts,” Jacques says. From the mysteries of dog communication to seminars from veterinarians and industry experts, there’s LOTS to learn. You can even treat your pet to a FREE massage or Reiki session!
  2. Fab felines: Ongoing throughout the weekend is the Can-Am/TICA Cat Show: “You’ll see cats you’ll never see running around the neighbourhood,” Jacques says.
  3. Lots of FREE fun: Everything you do with your pet once inside is free! Meet Vancouver’s celebrity pooch Bentley the Bulldog, see local police dog teams, be amazed by the DogWorks Trick Show and Flying Disc Dogs and so much more!
  4. Is Your Dog a SuperDog? Share your dog’s special skills at the President’s Choice SuperDogs Star Search for the chance to perform at the PNE! From agility to dancing, Frisbee freestyle to silly pet tricks, this fun, friendly showcase is a must.
  5. Be a blood donor: Your dog or cat’s blood donation could saves pet lives: the Animal Emergency Clinic of the Fraser Valley shares how!
  6. Bunnies, raptors and llamas, oh my! Rabbit agility? You bet – and you’ll be amazed at what these bunnies can do, in addition to the wonders of raptors, parrot care, lovable llamas and much more.
  7. Support local animal organizations: Don’t miss the Pet Lover Show’s annual Toonie Raffle in support of the Pacific Assistance Dogs Society (PADS), which breeds, raises and trains fully certified assistance dogs.
  8. Well-behaved pets welcome: Well-behaved pets are welcome at the show, but all must be on a leash.
  9. Picture perfect pets: Stop by the Giggle Booth, sponsored by the Mega Dog Raw Food, for a free photo with your pet.
