Seems like I picked a bad weekend to be out of town. This Saturday at the Cleveland Convention Center from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. is the biggest pet show of the year – The Cleveland Pet Expo. The event will feature vendors, costume contests, adoptable pets, entertainment, agility and obedience demonstrations…pretty much anything a pet lover could want to see.
The expo is dog friendly and free to the public. There are some good tips on Expo’s site if you do plan to bring your dog to this busy event. There will a lot of people and pets there, so besides making sure your dog is up to date on his vaccinations*, you’ll want to make sure that your dog is good in crowds and ok with loud noises.
Here are some of the events I wouldn’t miss (if I could go):
12:15PM: Pet/Owner Musical Chair Competition
1:15PM: Celebrity Dog Trainer Harrison Forbes Q & A
3:00PM: Animals Got Talent! Pet Talent Show
4:15PM: Sing for Your Pooch’s Dinner! For Reals!
5:00PM: Pet Costume Contest
Some of the local vendors participating:
North Coast Dogs – performing agility demonstrations
Secondhand Mutts – showcasing their adoptable dogs
Classy K-9z Dog Grooming & Pet Styling – free nail trims
The K-9 Solutions of Ohio – basic obedience demo

If you go, let me know what your favorite part of the show is!
