Bring your pooch to this pet expo and win a prize
Pet events are some of my favourites to write about! I love pets and anything associated with dogs is of great interest to me. Having owned dogs, cats and even llamas during my life, I can say I am a true animal lover. I, therefore, appreciate any event that includes our pets!

The Darebin Pet Expo will be officially back in 2019, so you can help celebrate all the things that so many of us love about our pets!
As usual, there will be competitions, a dog parade, educational sessions, free pet show bags, prize giveaways and so much more!
This will be a brilliant opportunity to meet with rescue groups, animal businesses, vets, animal behaviourists, specialist dog trainers, obedience clubs and many other people in the animal industry. Even if you do not have a pet at the moment, you can learn all about becoming a responsible pet owner by any of the pet expo stall holders. They can provide you with skilled and professional advice on how to go about buying a pet and which pet is right for your circumstances. They can also then connect you with rescue, adoption and foster care organisations.

This is a free community event and it is held in conjunction with the Darebin Community and the Kite Festival! There will be a lot to do and see for the whole family, including a live wildlife show. Make sure you put this date in your phone or diary, and of course, you can bring your best friend. Please ensure, however, that he or she is on a lead at all times when you say hello at this event!
