It’s a sure bet that pet parents in Vegas will enjoy a day that’s doggedly devoted to all of our furry, finned and feathered friends.

Our Booth

Be sure to visit the DogTipper/Preston Speaks/CatTipper booth at this show! We won’t be attending but Rachel and Preston from PrestonSpeaks.com will be. They’ll have some super giveaways and Rachel will be speaking that afternoon about ways to save money when you travel with your dog!

Celebrity Spotting

  • Continuing his crusade to rescue Rovers who have been wrongfully discriminated against, Pit Boss star Shorty Rossi– and his faithful canine companion, Hercules– will discuss his passion for helping Pit Bulls and will pose for pictures and sign autographs in support of Shorty’s Charities.
  • Sharing his two decades of experience in animal behavior, celebrity pet expert Harrison Forbes will host a Q&A session.

Activities

  • Talented tail-waggers will wow the crown with a display of their dexterity at the agility course demonstration, which includes a question and answer session and the chance for one lucky dog in the audience to test the course’s weave poles, teeters and tires.
  • Dogs in disguises will vie for first prize in the Pet Costume Contest.
  • Spots can show off their skills in the Pet Talent Contest.
  • How well do you know tunes about our tail-wagging chums? Step up to the mic for a chance to win a year’s supply of Natural Balance dog food.
  • If your canine loves to give kisses, sign up for the search for America’s Smoochiest Pooch.
  • Find out who will be the ‘wiener’ as the fleet feet of tiny Fidos race toward the finish line in the Doxy Derby as the canines compete for the benefit of the Las Vegas Hot-Diggity Dachshund CLub and Rescue.
