The Vancouver Pet Lover Show, the largest pet show in Western Canada, returns to Tradex in Abbotsford for its fifth year on Feb. 25 and 26.
The show features educational seminars from industry experts from across the province, live animal entertainment, and the latest in pet products and services.
This year, for the first time ever, the President’s Choice SuperDogs will host their own star search over the course of the show.
Finalists will be selected from audition tapes submitted to the Pet Lover Show Facebook page. The deadline for submissions has been extended to Feb. 24.
In addition, for the first time ever in Vancouver, come see the world-famous DockDogs, featuring three competitions combined to make one action-packed family-oriented act.
The dogs will compete to see who can jump the highest, dive the farthest distance, and swim the fastest to get out of the water.
Other highlights of the show include “paws-on” activities such as massage, reiki and animal chiropractic, as well as expert advice from certified trainers.
Continuous shows will be offered on six stages hosted by top animal specialists.
Returning favourites include dancing and skateboarding dogs, rabbit agility shows and the Can-Am/TICA Cat Show.
Show hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Tickets are $12 general, $8 for seniors and youth, and free to kids five years and under.
