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 to the 2018 event to celebrate, interact and learn more about our Best Friends.

In Dogs We Trust – they save lives, deter burglars, work the land, star in movies and are an integral part of everyday life. Words could never describe just how much they enrich our lives – from providing companionship and unconditional love, Dogs provide us with extensive benefits on a personal, family and community level.

Around 25,000 passionate Dog Lovers attended the last event and the 2018 Sydney Dog Lovers Show will again celebrate our canine friends like no other event in Australia. The 5th Sydney Dog Lovers Show will be staged from Saturday 4 to Sunday 5 August 2018 at the Royal Hall of Industries and the Hordern Pavilion and will be one of the largest and most comprehensive Festivals for Dog lovers in the world.
