Royal ICC (Ground Level)


10:00am – 4:30pm daily.

Meeting & connecting with a Dog is one of life’s absolute joys – for kids & adults of all ages.

It releases happy endorphins and never fails to put a smile on our face, so the Pat-A-Pooch feature is always one of the most popular attractions at each Dog Lovers Show.

You’ll be able to interact with a wide range of Dog breeds of all shapes and sizes with a handler on-hand at all times to provide trusted, reliable information on each pooch.

This feature presents a rare opportunity for kids (and adults) to get up close and personal with a wide range of Dogs with valuable information to help you make more informed decisions on selecting the right breed for your lifestyle and home, as well as taking a much deserved break from the day.

Pat-A-Pooch works in conjunction with Bow Wow Meow’s Perfect Match (Breed Selection Zone) and Breed Showcase features in helping to provide valuable education on a wide range of breeds. You can also attend expert Breed talks at the Dogs QLD Ask-A-Breeder stage to learn in-depth information on a specific breed and talk directly to knowledgeable breeders.

We know you’ll love meeting and interacting with dozens of beautiful Dogs at the event in a safe and rewarding environment.
