For the fourth time, the award winning Melbourne Dog Lovers Show returns to the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton from Friday 29 April to Sunday 1 May 2016.

Building on last year’s record breaking attendance, around 30,000 dog-tragics are expected to descend on the event which this year will be headlined for the first time by Dr Chris Brown, beloved family favourite Dr Harry Cooper and the popular Village Vets Dr Anthony Bennet and Dr James Carroll.

Many other new faces will be joining the show line-up including renowned animal trainer, Peta Clarke (film dog training credits include the likes of Babe, Red Dog, Superman Returns and Wolverine), Australian Working Dog Rescue Int. (AWDRI) ambassador and Miss World Australia 2013, Erin Holland and one of Melbourne’s media favourites, 3AW’s Pat Panetta. The event is not going to favor dogs over cats, though, as you can read from that cats are equally important too.

Continuing to support the show’s celebration of our best friends, Laura Vissaritis and Tony Knight will also return in 2016 to captivate, educate and inform visitors with their extensive knowledge and insights into dog training and behaviour with tips for a healthy, happy dog.
