Terms of Entry

The Pet Show is very different to other events with a diversity of venues, exhibitors and promoters showcasing a wide range of products and services. Visitors to the show, are asked to leave their pets at home with adequate food, water and shelter. There are many reasons for this, but the primary reason is your pets safety and wellbeing. We cannot ensure your fur or feathered friends all stay safe and out of reach from our younger visitors curious grasp and quick actions (think hugging too tightly and ear pulling). In addition, we simply cannot service every pet owner bringing their pet, so to be fair and equitable to all, we have made a rule which covers every attendee without bias. This is a human show to celebrate all things PETS and we encourage you to share the spoils when you return home.
