The Kennel Club is delighted to announce that London's premier
dog event, Discover Dogs, will be moving to Excel (subject to
contract) from 2015, following the closure of Earls Court
Exhibition Centre for redevelopment.
The event will take place 17 and 18 October 2015 and in
subsequent years it will move to the first weekend in December.
This year it will continue at Earls Court, which has been its home
since 1996, on 8 and 9 November.
Vanessa McAlpine, Kennel Club Events Executive, said: "We are
delighted to have a new home for Discover Dogs and we will continue
to run a first class event supported by the breed clubs, sponsors
and trade exhibitors. We hope will attract new visitors on top of

the importance of choosing the right breed for their lifestyle and
making sure they buy a puppy responsibly.

many years and that have won the hearts of dog lovers, will
continue at Excel, namely adorable dogs, excellent shopping, fun
