Countdown to London Pet Show is On

12 May 2014

UK - The London Pet Show, sponsored by MyPetonline, is back this week for its fourth year and promises to be bigger and better than ever before.

The SuperDogs Live competition hosted by Ben Fogle, racing micro-pigs and rabbit show jumping are among this year’s attractions.

Taking place on 17 & 18 May in its new home of Earls Court One in London, the show is the perfect place to meet a menagerie of hundreds of animals including dogs, cats, small furries, reptiles, fish, ponies and lots more.

This year there will be plenty of famous faces eager to promote responsible pet ownership and exciting new features.

TV presenter and animal lover Ben Fogle is set to get tails and tongues wagging all over the UK as he launches the amazing SuperDogs Live competition in the search for the most talented and entertaining dogs.

Wildlife explorer Steve Backshall, star of some of the UK’s most exciting wildlife shows, will be bringing some of the world’s weirdest animals in a thrilling display in the show’s Super Theatre, which will introduce and educate on wildlife from across the globe, from snakes and spiders to creepy crawlies and reptiles.

Springwatch and Autumnwatch presenter Chris Packham will be giving advice on ways of keeping nuisance ‘wildlife’ away from your pet. He will be sharing tips and ways to keep your dog, cat or rabbit free from fleas and ticks in the Pet Health Centre with mypetonline.co.uk.

Animals will take centre stage in the Show’s array of displays and arena events. The popular Bunny Showjumpers will be bouncing back into the ring, plus there will be stunning displays of canine obedience, micropig racing and doggy dancing.

The Show is divided into six Animal Zones including Discover Dogs, sponsored by James Wellbeloved, Discover Cats, sponsored by Royal Canin, Discover Small Furries, sponsored by Burgess Pet Care and Discover Animals, featuring aquatics and reptiles, sponsored by Exoterra, Fluval and Laguna, Discover Ponies and Discover Aquatics and Reptiles.

Each zone has its own feature areas with demonstrations, talks and activities, plus advice from leading animal experts and top UK animal charities.

Dog lovers attending the UK’s largest pet showcase will be spoiled for choice with plenty of canine activities in the Discover Dogs zone, sponsored by James Wellbeloved.

With more than 50 dog breeds on display and an action packed programme of events running all weekend in the Kennel Club Dog Activity Ring, the London Pet Show is an event not to be missed.
