Since 2013, the Dog Lovers Show has grown to become one of the largest events in the world dedicated to educating, entertaining and inspiring dog lovers.
We ran the event in Brisbane in 2017 and 2018 but have not been back since, so are excited to announce that it returns to the Sunshine State on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th March 2024 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from 9:30am to 5pm daily.
It will run alongside (but in separate halls) the inaugural Brisbane Cat Lovers Festival!
The event will be bursting with attractions, and it will be one of the best value days out in Brisbane as once you walk through the door everything to see and do is FREE!
Here’s a snapshot of the TOP THINGS YOU CAN DO AT THE SHOW:
