The new Pat-A-Hero-Dog area at the 2017 Melbourne Dog Lovers Show saw visitors get up close and personal with some of Australia’s hardest working Hero Dogs. From Hearing & Story Dogs to Working, Detection, Sled & Search And Rescue Dogs, the Pat-A-Hero Dog area featured a range of our country’s heroic service dogs that contribute to improving the lives of thousands of people in our community every day.
The feature presented a rare opportunity for kids (and adults) to get up close and personal with Hero Dogs of Australia and learn more about how these courageous Pooches enriched, and continue to enrich, people’s lives across the country.
Visitors loved meeting and interacting with dozens of beautiful Dogs at the event in a safe and rewarding environment.
