All dog lovers will go to heaven at London's Discover Dogs
event, which will see more than 3,000 canine cuties under the Earls
Court roof, on 8thand 9thNovember.
Tickets are now on sale for one of London's most unique events,
which last year welcomed almost 35,000 dog lovers, who came to meet
and greet nearly 200 breeds of dog, to shop 'til they dropped for
dog related products, and to watch fun four-legged displays and
"There is no other event quite like Discover Dogs. We have
almost 200 different pedigree dog breeds, of all shapes and sizes
that people can meet and find out if they would be good for their
lifestyle. This includes the most popular Labradors and French
Bulldogs all the way through to those rare breeds that you will
rarely ever see on the streets, such as the Otterhound and the
Lancashire Heeler" says Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary.
"Not only does the event have a massive cute factor, but it also
helps people to make responsible choices when buying a dog and
about caring for, training and living with dogs too. There are
hundreds of trade stands selling everything from glitzy collars to
delicious delicacies for dogs, and the agility displays and
Scruffts semi-final for crossbreeds are always huge crowd
The idea behind Discover Dogs, which is sponsored by Eukanuba
and dog friendly Metro Bank, is to create a fun, family event that
celebrates our unique relationship with dogs, in addition to
informing people about the importance of choosing the right breed
for their lifestyle and making sure they buy a puppy
Caroline continues: "There are thousands of dogs that come in to
breed rescue centres every year, simply because their owners are no
longer able to cope. We have more information at our fingertips
than ever before, but people continue to buy dogs on a whim because
of how the dog looks or because it is simply the one they are most
familiar with due to celebrities, or the man next door. Discover
Dogs helps people to learn more about dogs and to make the best
choices that they can."
VIPs and celebrities who came out in force to support the event
last year included Merlin actor Anthony Head, radio DJ Sara Cox,
the Geldof family and Olympic swimmer, Sharron Davies.
