Most pet owners would understand that occasional pang of guilt when they’re too busy with work and social life to spend some quality time with their furkids.

While it’s not ideal to bring your pets along everywhere you go as certain places are not pet-friendly, you won’t have to worry about that at PetExpo 2019! Bring your pets down and have them learn and play to their hearts’ content as you join in on talks, workshops, competitions and photo booths.

From 12th to 14th April 2019, get ready to gush at adorable fluff balls of different shapes and sizes, all while levelling up your pet-owner relationship with loads of bonding activities. Here’s what to look out for:


1. Get your furkid to try dog dancing

Let’s be honest – you’ve probably seen other dogs do some insane tricks and wished your own could do the same. But if you have no idea where to start in disciplining your goofball the right way, consider signing them up for Dog Dancing.

Don’t worry if you’re a total noob when it comes to obedience and agility training – a trainer will be there to guide you along and teach some basic tricks that you can apply back home too.

At the end of the training, show off your best tricks and dance moves – the first, second and third most popular team will win a $48, $36, and $18 gift pack from Underdog respectively.

But even if you and your dog aren’t top three, being 1 of the 30 participants in this event will get you a free PetExpo goodie bag, dog treats and a 10% discount voucher from APawz Dogsports Academy if you register online.

Date & Time: 12th April 2019, 12PM-1PM
Venue: Main Stage
Applicable for: Dogs 6 months and up

Cats are some of the world’s most beautiful creatures, and the 4th Easter Eggstravaganza Championship Cat Show 2019 will prove just that.  

It might sound like a meowthful, but it’s a short 2-day event where you’ll get to see some rare cat breeds such as the hairless Sphynx cat and the triple-coated Persian Cat strut their stuff.

Plus, you can make some furry friends at the Pet Me section, or learn more about popular pedigreed cat breeds if you’re thinking of getting a kitty companion of your own.

Date & Time: 13th-14th April, 11AM-7PM
Venue: Training Ground


3. Groom your pets and do good while you’re at it



#Fur4Hope is the first charity dog grooming event in Singapore perfect for all dog owners to give back to the dog community. Simply sign your pet up for a grooming session and in return, make your payment in the form of a charity donation where 100% of the proceeds will be used to raise awareness about dog welfare.

As if a refreshed pet dog isn’t reward enough, you’ll also be doing your part for stray dogs to find a new home.

Be one of the first 200 to sign up online, and you’ll be able to redeem a goodie bag at the event. Dog owners taking part in #Fur4Hope will also need to have their day pass to enter PetExpo.

Date & Time: 12th April 2019, 11AM-7PM
Venue: Main Stage

Just be one of the first 1,000 to register daily and collect your game card at the main PetExpo entrance. Then, make sure your social media accounts are on standby to help you complete three simple tasks like posing at the photo booth with your pet and taking a quiz at the interactive vending machine.

Date & Time: 12th-14th April 2019, 11AM-8PM

6. Help your pet overcome any past trauma

Injuries are inevitable and it sucks to see our furkids struggle with recovery. This is especially the case for owners with rescue pets or adopted dogs who’ve been through a lot.

To help your pet heal and overcome trauma, sign them up for Game on with Animal Rehabilitation! and learn from licensed veterinarian Dr Sara Lam. There will be demonstrations of simple exercises you can help your pet do at home daily without the use of specialised equipment.

And to make sure you learn it the correct way, a professional team will be there to guide pet owners along to ensure that your doggo’s posture is right. With only 30 slots available, you’d best register ASAP and get a free PetExpo goodie bag while you’re at it.

Date & Time: 12th April 2019, 6.30PM-8PM
Venue: Main Stage
