OAKS, Pa. ─ The Greater Philadelphia Pet Expo will be held at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, January 13-15, 2012. The Greater Philadelphia Pet Expo is designed to educate and entertain the public about pets.
The show will offer many educational performances, hands-on-petting opportunities, pet adoptions, and a shopping venue for pet lovers and their pets.
Highlights will include the World of Dogs Program headlined by the Classic K9 Performance Dogs who will run, jump, retrieve in a flash, and change directions at lightning speeds while competing in a wide variety of ‘Olympic’style events. Kan Do K9’s will teach fundamentals of obedience training, drill team demonstrations and the Philadephia Dog Training Club will demonstrate Rally Obedience and have attendees participate.
