Bring Your Pets!

We are so excited to welcome you and your pet at The Victoria Pet Expo.

We are so excited to welcome you and your pet ONLINE for our VIRTUAL PET SUMMIT

Signed Animal Waiver is mandatory for pet entry.

Please print and sign the animal waiver and bring it with you to gain entrance into the event.


  • Be honest about your pet's temperament. You know your pet better than anyone else, ask yourself if you really should bring your pet to the event. Would your pet enjoy the atmosphere? Shy pets will not like expos and large events. Also, if your pet is at all reactive–including reactivity that’s caused by fear around other pets or in new situations–then expos are not the place to take your pooch. Leave your pet at home to enjoy a good nap, head off to the expo and have a good time without him. Maybe even buy him a goodie to surprise him on your return. You’ll both be happier!


  • Keep walking. If your dog encounters another dog and things seem a little bit tense, don’t stop. Can’t get down a busy aisle? Turn around and go back the other way. You can always come back to check out that row later. Your dog will be a lot less tense if the two of you are moving.


  • Print, sign and bring your waiver with you. There will be printed copies at the door but it's not always easy to sign paperwork when you have your pet with you at a stimulating event. Skip the stress and come prepared, it will save you and your pet time at the door.


  • All pets must be well-behaved (Owners must have control of my animal at all times during the course of the Victoria Pet Expo and will adhere to the rules, not only set by the Victoria Pet Expo but also the Victoria, BC Animal Bylaw regulations.)


  • All pets must have a signed Victoria Pet Expo Animal Waiver. Please print, sign and bring the Animal Waiver with you.


  • Pets must be on a standard leash (no retractable leashes allowed)

  • Please review safe pet greeting behaviors with your family before attending the show. Remind your family to always ask the owner’s permission to pet an animal, allow the pet to sniff their hands and then they should gently pet the animal’s chest, chin or back (not the top of its head), speaking calmly and quietly.

We are so excited to see you at
