London Pet Show: Review

The next attraction on my list was The London Pet Show at Earls Court 2  which was on May 11th & 12th.

So what sort of attractions do they have to offer the public, you say? As the name suggests, The London Pet Show exhibits a whole range of species such as;

  • Fish
  • Birds (Definitely wins the most noisiest award)
  • Pigs
  • Hedgehogs
  • Rats
  • Snakes
  • *Breathes in*
  • Ferrets
  • Ponies
  • Rabbits
  • Cats and of course, my personal favourite, Dogs.

London Pet Show: Summary & other News!

What an eventful weekend it has been! Spent last weekend at the London Pet Show, stewarding the Discover Dogs Breed Booths and The Kennel Club stand. It’s certainly been a great experience, met loads of interesting people in various industries of the animal world and species alike!

Will be posting a full review later this week.

In other news I’ve been given a temporary job with Cooper & Co Solicitors for the next coming talks and seminars in Dog Law hosted by Trevor Cooper. There will be a series of seminars around the country from London to Harrogate and to all types of owners which have been very popular by demand, especially at a time when animal legislation (notably the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991) is constantly changing. I’m certainly looking forward to it!

 

Crufts 2013

It’s that time of year again! 25,000 dogs, 210 breeds, 7 groups and 1 Best in Show. As the most renowned and certainly the biggest in the world, Crufts is truly the world cup of Dog Showing.

Crufts is simply four days of celebration of man’s best friend. As well as Best in Show, there are a huge number of activities besides; the Scruffts final, flyball, heelwork to music and agility action in the main ring, Discover Dogs, a reading corner where children can read to special reading dogs, educational areas, a breed health zone, hundreds of trade stands to shop from and much more. The dog showing world is a multi million pound industry and there is no better place to see that than Crufts and many businesses such as dog food and equipment heavily depend on it as a source of income.

The atmosphere is always exhilarating but for once I wasn’t exhibiting any dogs, so this gave me a great chance to network and blog. One of the things I did get a chance to do was to interview Dog Law Specialist Trevor Cooper from Dogs Trust and Cooper & Co Solicitors here.
