Are you struggling to get your little boy to sit, stay, fetch or roll over? Then why not head down to Excel London in mid October so you can discuss it with the experts? They’ll be able to help you with your four-legged friend too (see what we did there?) as Discover Dogs is London’s biggest non competitive canine event, with displays, events, competitions and a chance to meet the doggos themselves.

There’s Scruffts, otherwise known as “the nation’s favourite crossbreed competition”. The event runs throughout the year however the latter stages of the competition are  normally held at Discover Dogs.

There’s the “Cuddle Corner”. If you are absolutely dying to cuddle some of the breeds on show then this is the place to be as the area will be choc-a-bloc full of adorable doggies of all breeds, sizes and types. Strategically placed sofas and comfy chairs will make the section even more cosy. 

The Kids Zone, meanwhile, will offer the ankle biters a menu of face painting, competitions, arts & crafts and a giant chalk wall while the more energetic kids can test themselves on the Discover Dogs Obstacle Course.

And if that wasn’t enough, there’ll also be dog obedience, agility shows and the popular Southern Golden Retriever display in the main arena while breed experts will be on hand throughout the event to answer your queries on anything canine related. 

Discover Dogs will be at the ExCel Centre in London on the 15th and 16th of October 2022. More information about the event can be found here. If you’d like to discover more cool exhibitions in London, please click here.
