This year’s Pet Lover Show will feature dozens of returning favourites, and some new highlights:
New this year at the show and no stranger to the Lower Mainland will be veteran dog handler and integrated police dog service team member Const. Scott MacLeod with his sidekick service shepherd Argo. Const. MacLeod will talk about the training dogs like Argo must complete successfully to be police dog ready.
Jessica O’Neill, dog behaviour specialist, will talk about the important of providing clear instruction and guidance when training your dog. O’Neill is a Canadian entrepreneur who has been working in the canine behaviour industry for more than 10 years and has developed a number of dog-related products and services such as the JWalker harness and canine rehabilitation programs.
President’s Choice SuperDog Star Search
Back this year by popular demand, the President’s Choice SuperDogs will be auditioning local finalists for the chance to perform this summer with them, at The Fair at the PNE! Does your dog have what it takes to be a SuperDog? We’re looking for dogs who excel in both agility and obedience, as well as just tricks. Head to the Pet Lover Show website to find out how to submit your dog’s audition video.

The Pet Lover Show will host a number of top animal specialists speaking on multiple stages throughout the weekend. Pet owners have the opportunity to learn from industry leaders and leave a pet expert! The event is a one stop destination to learn all about pet health and behaviour, while browsing the latest in animal-focused products.
