The Breed Showcase is returning even bigger, better and furrier in 2018!

Over 100 breeds were at the Melbourne show including over 30 Dogs Victoria Breed Clubs that exhibited in the Breed Showcase – so you could see, compare and cuddle a wide range of beautiful canines! Dogs come in all shapes and sizes and certainly have their very own traits and personalities. Our Breed Showcase was the best opportunity to gather valuable information and learn more about a wide range of Dogs.

In 2018, the Dog Lovers Show introduced three brand new exciting features to the Breed Showcase…

We are dedicated to representing as many Dog breeds as possible, this year was no exception, we brought you the all new rotating zone with the Meet The Breeds Collective. Any visitor interested in a particular breed of Dog could visit the hit new Ask-A-Breeder Stage to hear Breed Information Talks presented by experts from Dogs Victoria Breed Clubs. The all new Dog Sports Showcase demonstrated the world of K9 competition.

Reputable breeders and representatives from Dogs Victoria were on hand again to ensure guests were equipped with all the right information to make an informed decision about selecting a new Dog or puppy. We’d like to give a big thanks to the team at Dogs Victoria for working closely with us to present this fabulous feature once again at the Melbourne show.

You could have also found some of the Breed Showcase Dogs being featured in our Pat-A-Pooch zone, where guests had another opportunity to meet, pat and get to know a variety of wonderful breeds on a more personal level (in comfy beanbags!).

The Perfect Match feature sponsored by Bow Wow Meow helped visitors make an informed decision on the most ideal breed to suit their lifestyle with a detailed questionnaire and large information posters on display.
