The Ottawa Pet Expo is an absolute pet friendly family event! With covid protocols in place for the last couple of years, we appreciate that many new families pet members may not be yet completely socialized to others in a large community setting. The Ottawa Pet Expo will have various locations in the venue where you can “Ask the Trainer” for tips on how best to socialize your newest family member with us at the Ottawa Pet Expo. All these trainers are on site thanks to our sponsors, to support the responsible pet ownership message.

CAT SHOWS 101: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
What are cat shows?
Cat shows are exhibitions where cats are judged by breed standards, health condition, and beauty. As you might know if you’re a cat owner or have been in the past, cats have a lot more personality, grace, and agility than they’re given credit for in the media. Cat shows are every bit as interesting and exciting as dog shows are – and they’re a great way to connect with other owners, learn more about our feline companions, and take home a prize or two.
Can anyone join a cat show?
YES! Both Pedigreed Cats and Household Pets can join in the Cat Show. We want to see your feline friend at one of our shows!
