The 2019 Dog Lovers Show moved to the Sydney Showground, catering for the growth in visitor and exhibitor numbers and delivered the most successful event since its inception in 2014.


The Greatest Festival in the World Dedicated to Dog Lovers (well, we certainly think it is!) ran on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 August 2019 and will be returning next year on Saturday 8 & Sunday 9 August 2020, at  Sydney Showground from 9:30am to 5pm daily!

The whole Show was literally bursting with attractions.

It’s one of the best value days out in Sydney! Plus once you walk through the door everything to see and do is FREE!

Our new home at Sydney Showground had much better access, loads of affordable parking, a train stop at our doorstep and loads of other public transport options. We were also able to spread the Show out a lot more, making for a much more enjoyable experience for visitors and Dogs!

Here’s a snapshot of the TOP 10 THINGS YOU COULD HAVE DONE AT THE SHOW (more like the top 50 things to do actually…):
