Pet lovers of all kinds, get ready for a weekend full of animals, vendors, family-friendly events, adoptions and more.
If you consider your pet to be family, then mark your calendars from Friday, March 20 to Sunday, March 22. The Super Pet Expo is back, heading to the Dulles Expo Center for a full lineup of events.
The Super Pet Expo will include over 150 local and national pet product exhibitors, local rescue organizations and experts in training, nutrition and health. Plus, attendees can feel free to bring their leashed, friendly pets with them.
Shop agility training equipment, dental care, gifts for pet owners, pet photographs, dog treats, pet-friendly cars, bandannas, collars, leashes, apparel, toys and more. And the show’s not just for dogs.
Exhibitors cater to cats, reptiles, birds and small pets as well, and, this year, Repticon returns, bringing hundreds of reptiles and exotic pets from top breeders and educators to the expo. Reptiles will include snakes, lizards and more, and attendees can purchase feeders, reptile supplies and reptile-themed products.
The expo has also partnered with The International Cat Association for an all-breed and household pet cat show at the event, bringing cat-friendly exhibitors with it, which have yet to be announced to the public.
For entertainment, expect Treibball, a soccer-like game for dogs, a hermit crabs show, an agility show, a luring course and a lecture by holistic veterinarian, Judy Morgan.
