Special Attractions – 2019
Please check back as we finalize our line-up. Thank you!
We are happy to offer special areas and attractions for all pet owners and guests attending the World of Pets Expo. Each of the following will have it’s own special “World of” attraction area located on the floor and will feature select breeds and species on display as well as a library of educational materials for you to take home. Located at each of our “World of” areas will be knowledgeable staff members who are ready and able to answer all of your specific pet and breed questions.
If you are curious about a specific breed or are considering a new type of pet, this is an excellent resource for you to gather materials and ask questions before making that important decision.

AKC Dog Agility Trials
Located in the South Hall, you’ll find 2 rings of excitement all weekend long. You don’t have to be a dog person to enjoy and appreciate the amazing displays of agility at this attraction.
Agility is a sporting event for dogs that is designed to demonstrate a dog’s willingness to work with its handler in a variety of situations. The dogs must be in peak physical condition, have excellent concentration, training and teamwork abilities. There is a large obstacle course that the dog and owner must negotiate while racing the clock.
