Our Dogs are family and no words could ever portray just how much joy and love they bring to our lives. The Show is a tribute to the unconditional love that we share with our Dogs and we look forward to welcoming you for the very first time to our 2017 Brisbane Show to celebrate, interact with and learn more about our Best Friends.
