Ottawa Pet Expo

Fun for the WHOLE family (pets invited too)
Ticket INFO (kids 12 and under are free)

Dock Dogs 

Back for another year, this hugely popular water sporting tournament for dogs will be making a splash once again!

The Events
Big Air is essentially a "long jump for dogs." Speed Retrieve is a timed event where dogs race to retrieve a bumper toy suspended 2" above the water. Extreme Vertical is the equivalent of a "high jump for dogs." Iron Dog is a triathlon for those dogs that compete in all three of the events. The best scores in each event are tallied, with the goal being to get the highest number of points in total.


Come and visit this interactive and playful exhibit of adorable miniature pigs!

Flashpoint Photo Booth

People are always looking for something different for their events and to add a little fun and camaraderie. Flashpoint Photobooth is unique and interactive, and gives people a souvenir that they can take home to remember the day. Flashpoint Photobooth is more than a photobooth, it's an experience.

 Kids Zone

Participate in a Be-A-Tree dog bite prevention workshop brought to you by the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians.  This interactive presentation teaches children of all ages how to "read" a dog's body language to ensure a safe encounter, and avoid a traumatic experience that can result in a lifetime  fear of dogs.
Tracey and her team of talented helpers will be offering their face painting services for a nominal fee.  All proceeds will go towards The Ottawa Humane Society.
Be sure to visit our pocket pet petting zoo where the kids can cuddle a little creature from the Zoo Crew.
The Zoo Crew is an animal education company that combines entertainment and learning to create an exciting experience that will be remembered!
