One of my personal favorite expo shows is making its way back to our area this weekend and that is the Super Pet Expo.
This weekend bring your fur kids and families starting February 7-9th to the NJ Convention Center in Edison, NJ.
And they have more fun in store for this year with these new exhibits! The Mid-Atlantic Disco Dog Club MAD – Dogs The dogs will perform freestyle disc throwing exhibitions.
Jagger, the youngest featured at the Mid Atlantic Disc Dog Club booth, at 4,is an Australian Shepherd who has been highly competitive out the gates at 1 1/2. He is one of the club’s top dogs and was a World Champion at 2 1/2 as well as being on the podiums many times over.
Treibball … watch out World Cup because these dogs are an elite group of canine’s that are enthusiastic about the game and are talented. This is a German, low-impact sport which has a little soccer, ball chasing and herding. The Bone-a-Fied talent group will be there showcasing this and many more of what their athletes can do and ways you can get your pet involved.
Everyone had a hermit crab as a pet at one point right? I know my family did and they are so cute. The final new addition to this year’s expo is Mister Crabs – Crab Show, which is a hands on, educational show showing children how to build a “crabitat” and the care and conservation of hermit crabs.
Two are the most popular areas that people love and are scared of will be back this year and that is Repticon and Rizzo’s Reptile Discovery
The Green Tree Python, part of Repticon, is designed to blend in so you can’t tell where its head is so it will look like a vine in a tree. These snakes turn green as they get older. You’re looking at the top of the snake’s head in the middle of the coil.
Do not worry the cats are not excluded from the fun. The Garden State Cat Club will be sponsoring a Pet Me Cat Area and the CFA Agility will demonstrate how cat owners can see their pets agility at home by putting them through jumps and hoops.
