No doubt about it, these expos are CROWDED. As with any event that attracts large crowds, we’ve found that people who prepare for the expo tend to have a much better experience. Here are some valuable tips from the team at Amazing Pet Expos to help ensure that our guests have the best day possible:
1. Only bring your pet along if it is well behaved, non-aggressive and doesn’t get stressed out in crowded, stimulating and noisy situations. There are all kinds of other animals, small children, wheelchairs and lots of people at the event. Your pet will be exposed to dogs barking, people speaking loudly on microphones, crowds clapping and attendees cheering. You know your pet best, so please use your best judgment to make sure that your pet will enjoy the expo just as much as you will.
