Abbotsford– The seventh annual Pet Lover Show, Western Canada’s largest pet-focused event, is barking its way into Tradex, Fraser Valley’s Trade and Exhibition Centre from February 23rd to the 24th.
The two-day event, once again, will feature animal-related seminars and speakers, engaging and interactive pet-focused activities, and fun for pet lovers of all ages. The Pet Lover Show is a can’t miss event for pet owners and their well-behaved, four-legged friends in the Greater Vancouver area and the Fraser Valley.

This year’s Pet Lover Show will feature dozens of returning favourites, including the President’s Choice SuperDogs Star Search, a wide range of must-attend pet owner educational seminars, the furry best friend’s favorite Giggle Booth and the all-too famous Lure Course.
New this year at the show and no stranger to the Lower Mainland will be veteran dog handler and integrated police dog service team member Const. Scott MacLeod with his sidekick service shepherd Argo. The duo will be demonstrating some of the tests police dogs must go through to be deemed suitable for police work on the Pet Lover Show’s amazing dog stage. Const. MacLeod will also talk about the training dogs like Argo must complete successfully to be police dog ready.
Also new to the show this year will be Jessica O’Neill, dog behaviour specialist, who will talk about the important of providing clear instruction and guidance when training your dog. O’Neill is a Canadian entrepreneur who has been working in the canine behaviour industry for more than 10 years and has developed a number of dog-related products and services such as the JWalker harness and canine rehabilitation programs.
