Whether you’re considering getting a dog, are an experienced dog owner there is something for you at Discover Dogs. This is the 15th event organised by the Kennel Club and show casing more than 200 breeds of pedigree dogs! I have always grown up with dogs, and I strongly believe that children learning to respect dogs is an important part of growing up. Boo already understands that while he may be able to climb all over a family dog he cannot get too close to our friends lurcher as he will growl. Boo adores dogs, but understands that they need to be treated with respect, and that not all dogs want to be petted.
Discover Dogs not only offers visitors the opportunity to meet a variety of different dog breeds, but there are events to keep the whole family occupied for the entire visit! The seminars look fantastic and cover topics as diverse as ‘What to look for in a dog trainer’ to ‘The psychological benefits of owning a dog’.
Breed rescue is also represented at the event and it is a great opportunity to ask questions or address concerns you might have about adopting a rescue dog.
The event is held on 12th & 13th November 2011 at Earls Court 1, sponsored by Royal Canine and tickets can be purchased from here and accompanied children under 12 go free!
