What Is It?

It’s that time of the year again – the WODAC Pet Expo is returning to the Gallagher Convention Centre for its 23rd year, offering a weekend that literally goes to the dogs and all the other furry, scaly and feathery critters in our lives. This is South Africa’s largest pet event, catering to all types of pet lovers, whether they own dogs, cats, horses, fish, snakes, lizards, hamsters, rabbits – you name it! WODAC will delight, educate and show you just how much fun you can have with your favourite pets.

WODAC 2018
This exciting family event features three days of demonstrations, competitions, informative talks and charming shows. You can expect everything pet-related all under one roof, from champion show-dogs and cats to obedience and agility competitions, horse shows and exciting parades. You’ll also have the opportunity to speak to breeders about the best dog, cat and exotic pet breeds for your lifestyle and family and discover the latest pet treats and care products, while meeting some of SA’s champion pets.

An adorable new arena attraction is WODAC’s first-ever rabbit show jumping competition, which is not to be missed. Then there’s Armand, the singing cowboy, who returns with his spectacular equine display incorporating a medley of music, dressage and dance. And whether you’re already a responsible pet owner or planning to become one, you’ll also learn how to take care of your pets better with WODAC’s informative and interactive workshops.
