Pets in the city: the London Pet Show is back

Posted at 11:15 am, May 11, 2013 in Fun London

Animal lovers, rejoice! The London Pet Show is back in town this weekend and offering you plenty of opportunity to exercise the squealy vocal chords reserved purely for new born babies and micro pigs. On May 11 and 12, Earls Court Two will be flooded with dogs, cats, ducks, rats and a whole list of other animals that you can meet, learn about and have lots of fun with. For two days, the exhibition centre will be packed to the rafters with the cute and fluffy and the weird and wonderful giving you plenty of opportunity to learn about a new species, get some tips and advice from the experts and, most importantly, get up close and personal with the animals themselves.

There will be talks, demos, displays and… wait for it… doggy dancing! Once again, celebrity dog dancer, Donelda Guy and her two collies, Biba and Mega, from ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, will be performing to the crowds while BBC’s ‘Barking Blondes’ Jo Good and Anna Web will be introducing ‘Doggy Come Dancing’ – a must see if you’re into that sort of thing. If dogs aren’t your bag, you might prefer the micro pig racing, rabbit show jumping or duck herding, so get your ticket now and get ready for the warmest, fuzziest weekend you’ve had in a long time. Carly-Ann Clements
