About the PetExpo

Over almost a quarter of a century, WODAC (World of Dogs and Cats) has become a favourite pet event for all South African animal lovers! Now we have an opportunity to rethink and reinvent! With a new management team, a fresh look, and an inclusive new name, PetExpo is taking the pet industry to new heights. With the goals of harnessing a love and respect for all animals, supporting animal welfare organisations, promoting local pet businesses, growing dog sports, supporting ethical preservation breeders, and above all, education, to encourage responsible pet ownership, the new venue, new date, and exciting new competitions guarantee an epic, memorable experience for pet lovers!

In short, PetExpo will be a feast of all things pet related!

If dogs are your passion, you can watch pure bred hounds strut their stuff at two All-Breeds Championship shows affiliated with KUSA, chat to dedicated breeders committed to the future of their respective breeds, and engage with experts ready to answer questions pertaining to health, nutrition, behavioural issues etc. Agility dogs in action in the big ring will leave you marvelling at their stamina and speed, while shopping up a storm for the hounds at home may leave your purse depleted!

Cat enthusiasts can look forward to two All Breeds cat shows, engage with professionals who can answer a variety of feline related questions and of course, all that shopping! If you have dogs and cats at home, well, you have plenty of time to budget!

The increasing popularity in reptiles and exotics as pets in recent years means that a dedicated team of experts will be present to answer questions pertaining to the special skills, needs, diet and habitats required for this category.

Time: From 08h30 to 18h30
Cost: R120 per adult, R60 per child under 12 and R60 per pensioner.
