Sure to put plenty of tails in a spin, The Dog Lovers Show is returning for 2021.
​The three-day bonanza that transforms the Royal Exhibition Building into a canine stronghold will be landing back in Melbourne in October.


The historic and heritage-listed building will be overrun with more dogs and dog-related activities than you can poke a stick at. There’ll be designated stands for over 150+ breeds giving you the chance to get up close and personal with some potential new pups, professionally run K9 shows and talks all based around better training your best pal, and an Adoption Zone where (if you’re in the market) you’ll be able to rescue dogs in need of a home.

There’s a range of market stalls where you’ll be able to grab goodies, toys, treats, beds, and gadgets all aimed at giving your furry friend its best life. Last but not least the famous Splashzone will be making a return, this outdoor diving pool will be putting a slew of different doggos to the test, challenging their aerodynamical abilities as they launch themselves off a run-up platform into a 100,000-litre pool, all heavily supervised of course. 

The Dog Lovers Show will be running from Friday 22 October until Sunday 24 October from 9:30am until 5pm so there’s plenty of time for pats, for more information check it out here.
