Your chance to discover dogs!

October 5, 2019

If you’re thinking about getting a dog, but not sure what breed or type will best suit your lifestyle, then you might like to head  along to Discover Dogs in London in October. 

This exclusively canine-themed event, which is organised by The Kennel Club,  takes place on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October at the ExCel. You will be able to meet and find out about more than 200 breeds of dogs – from the popular Labrador Retriever to the lesser-known Hovawart. You will also get the chance to see dogs in action with dog agility and dog training demonstrations. 

When looking for your perfect dog, you will want to choose one that is healthy and has been well bred. Whilst breeds like French Bulldogs and Pugs may be a popular choice, vets warn that they are prone to serious health problems such as breathing problems and obesity. This can be costly and heartbreaking for owners

If Discover Dogs sparks your interest in getting a pup, the next step is to find a reputable breeder or rescue centre. Make sure you always see a puppy in the place where it was born to avoid puppy farm scams. And use the Puppy Contract to give you peace of mind that your puppy has been well bred, properly socialised and has passed any breed-specific health checks, 

Tickets are available to buy online in advance or at the door (for humans only, no dogs, except assistance dogs). Find out more about Discover Dogs and secure your ticket.
