Featuring the exciting hall of dogs, cats, birds, fish, exotic pets and reptiles, this expo is every pet-lover’s dream where visitor can immerse themselves in all things pet-related.

Explore and shop for pet food and nutrition options; accessories; toys and treats; natural and organic pet products; health care and pharmaceutical products; pet related services, pet fashion accessories and grooming products.

WODAC promises to deliver an exciting expo with fantastic entertainment for the whole family. Attractions include the Complete Pet Food Dog Agility, Eco-Vet Canine Survivor, Wuma Flyball, the Bayer Dog Carting, Promeal Dog Jumping, Montego 60-Weaving Pole Challenge and Dancing with Dogs Demo, Sledding Display, Canine Good Citizen, Dancing with Dogs International Competition, WODAC Dog Show – Grand Masters (Veterans) Final and Indoor Agility Invitational Grand Prix, the Animal Talk Dog Parade and Top 32 SA Bred, Pedigree Shelter Dog Parade, SA Pets “Extraordinary” Dog Demo, Dogsense Breeders Challenge Final.

Innovative attractions in 2011 include a petting zoo for the kids, and daily reptile and exotic pet shows in the main arena, as well as guinea pigs and pet rats on show – definitely a talking point that will either make you gasp with admiration or keep a wary distance!

And let’s not forget the ultimate showdown: it’ll be claws and paws at dawn; plus a parade of oh-so-superior felines in the Champion of Champions Cat Show.

There are regular arena displays and activities – from funky dog dancing to a pet fashion show for pampered pooches, pussycats and other four-legged fashionistas.

You can also talk to dog and cat breeders, as well as breeders of other pets, who will be able to enlighten you about the best breed to suit your lifestyle and family circumstances. Obtaining sound expert advice on the type of pet to welcome into your home is extremely important for potential owners, as each breed and species has its own distinctive characteristics.

The expo is committed to responsible pet ownership and animal welfare organisations will be on hand to advise you on how to adopt a pet that suits your lifestyle, your home, your family and your pocket.

If you love your pets – and animals in general – or are in the market for a trusty new companion, then be sure to join other like-minded people in exploring this family-friendly expo.

Head down to the Gallagher Convention Centre from Friday, 22 July 2011 to Sunday, 24 July 2011 between 10am and 6pm. Regretfully, visitors are not allowed to bring their pets. Only pets on show will be allowed into the venue.
