Great KC Pet Expo - April 11
by Cathy Erickson
Pet lovers can shop, adopt, learn and compete at the new Great KC Pet Expo slated for April 16 & 17, 2011 in Overland Park at the Overland Park International Trade Center.
The Great KC Pet Expo features approximately 100 exhibitor booths showcasing everything new in the pet industry. It’s a pet lovers mall with products and services from fashionable collars, beds and tags to DNA kits, jewelry and bling for the proud pet owner. Premium pet foods, waste removal services, training and health tips are all available on the show floor.
Pet owners love to compete in the Ultimate Stay, Leave It, Tiny Dog and Costume Contests. Everyone gets a ribbon and the winners take home great prizes from our trade show exhibitors.
Celebrity Trainer and Animal Planet alum Joel Silverman shares all the backstage scoop on training animals for TV and movies, plus he’ll use his own dog, Foster, to demo training tips and tricks.
Training and Agility
Each day we’ll host training sessions, followed by testing, for the Good Canine Citizen Award. Anyone interested in knowing more about Agility can try the supervised Agility equipment on site.
Rescue groups will be on hand with adoptable pets and one group is bringing the most unique fundraiser we’ve ever seen: the DeLorean car from Back To The Future will be on site for photo opportunities for you and your pet!
See You There!
The Great KC Pet Expo Admission is $8.00 for adults, $4.00 for children 6 - 12, kids 5 & under admitted free. All event details available at www.GreatKCPetExpo.com.
