Dog Lovers Show & Dogtired 2016

Posted on

The Melbourne Dog Lovers show opened its doors last week for three bump filled days of ‘’doggy’’ action.

Held in the Royal exhibition building, Melbourne some 30,000 people attended the 2016 show.

Two main stages kept the dog lovers entertained with world record dog jumping attempts, hot laps and agility demonstrations as well as celebrity vets chatting with the crowds about responsible pet ownership and care.

The rescue zone was another huge attraction as well as the breeder showcase that had dogs of all shapes and sizes.

For Dogtired we had the opportunity to launch our latest product the pocket bed to this Dog Loving audience, as well as our original raised bed and blankets. We met families waiting to welcome their first puppies, dog lovers who just loved buying the latest for their pets as well as a couple of Australian TV celebrities Tom and Wayne! 

Another successful show for Dogtired and we got to hear some great product testimonials, my favourite was “why do you think dogs love your beds so much?”
