Check out the latest information on the Orange County Pet Expo 2012.

Every year I get excited when I think about the Orange County Pet Expo.  The OC Pet Expo is usually scheduled from Friday to Sunday in the middle of April and this year is no different.  In 2010 the Pet Expo in Orange County is going to be held from April 16th to April 18th.  Right now it’s only January and I’m already getting excited.

Here’s a look back at some of the articles I wrote on the Orange County Pet Expo over the past few years:

The OC Pet Expo is one of our favorite events and way back in 2006 it was the trigger that got me started on guide dog puppy raising and rescue dog fostering.

We’ve had a ton of fun the past few years at the OC Pet Expo.  Back in 2008 Stetson was still a Guide Dog Puppy In Training and was allowed to accompany me into the Pet Expo.  I decided last year Derby was a little too young and inexperienced to attend the event.

The exhibitions at the OC Pet Expo are great for the entire family.  Last year we watched the Police Dog demonstration, the dog agility relays, Splash Dogs, visited the GDA booth, and the many dogs and dog rescues.

If you’re looking for some of the latest and greatest dog products then look no further than the Orange County Pet Expo.  Last year we picked up the Water Rover – Portable Dog Bowl.  If you’re looking for a great water bottle slash dog water bowl then check out the Water Rover.  We love using it on all of our outings especially on hikes or on our Guide Dog field trips.

Of course, dogs aren’t the only attraction at the OC Pet Expo.  There are also cats, birds, fish, snakes, lizards, llamas, ponies, rabbits, and many more.

So, if you’re a pet lover like me than visit the Orange County Pet Expo 2010 this year…you won’t regret that you did!

  2. @Reka, I love the OC Pet Expo too. I’ve gone every year for the past few years and usually come away with some kind of new product for my dogs.

    I usually don’t get through the entire show either and try to catch most of the events. I like watching the splash dogs and last year I caught the K9 police dog demo. I also sometimes volunteer at the guide dogs of america booth.

    Best of luck getting through the entire show this year.

  3. I attend this fair every year and I love it every year. my only downfall is that I never get to see everything. This year I’m hoping to accomplish that by limited the stroller, it’s very hard to get thru the exhibits when you have a stroller. I must let you know that the shows are very enjoyable, not just the animal shows, but the human ones as well.
