The Pet Show returns to the County Showground

The Pet Show, the UK’s largest indoor & outdoor multi-pet event returns to the Stafford County Showground on the 18th-19th August 2018!

The Pet Show brings together all creatures great and small, and showcases the very best that the UK’s pet industry has to offer. Split into dedicated animal zones, each one teeming with experts, meet and greet areas, live demonstrations, exciting displays and trade stands brimming with goodies for pets. Whether a pet owner, pet professional or pet enthusiast, there’s something for everyone. The show is also dog friendly, so if you have a canine pal – bring them along!


The show is broken down into seven different animal zones; The Kennels, The Cattery, The Hutch & Run, The Aviary, The Vivarium, The Aquarium and Animal Discovery. Each zone is full of adorable animals to meet and interactive features for the whole family. There will be the chance to meet and greet micro pigs, alpacas, miniature Shetland ponies, parrots, chinchillas, guinea pigs, tarantulas, pythons and so much more! Don’t forget that each zone also features trade stands from the best of British brands where you can find food, treats, toys and housing for your pets.

The Pet Show 2018 will also see the return of one of the most popular features from previous years; The Dog Breed Village. This area lets you meet a huge range of different breeds from the massive Irish Wolfhound all the way down to the tiny Chinese Crested, and plenty in between! This is a great way to get to know a certain breed before adding one to your family, and each stand is manned by experts who will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

More of a cat lover? The Pet Show 2018 is extremely proud to present the LondonCats International Cat Show, in association with TICA. The cat show will present many different cat breeds, from household favourites such as the British Shorthair to more exotic breeds such as the Lykoi (better known as the Werewolf cat). There will also be the chance to quiz the experts and meet the gorgeous felines taking part in the show.

The Pet Show 2018 also features two huge arenas with an ongoing set of timetabled displays throughout the weekend. Visitors will have the chance to see sheep, goat and duck racing, ‘dancing’ miniature ponies, exciting scurry races and even discover what it takes to look after a 30 stone giant tortoise! Additionally, the show offers horse-drawn carriage rides around the main arena – this is a great way to watch all the action in style.

The extremely popular dog agility display will also be returning for 2018, showcasing their impressive training and tricks. What’s more, there will even be the chance to enter your own canine pal in our Fun Dog Show. Visitors and their dogs can compete for the title of ‘Best Crossbreed’, ‘Best Pedigree’, ‘Best Rescue Story’ and even the ‘Waggiest Tail’.

There really is something for everyone at The Pet Show 2018; make sure you don’t miss out on this great day out for the British public and their pets!
