Ultimate Family Event!

The Ottawa Pet Expo is an absolute pet friendly family event. Whether your family member is a furry, feathery, or scaley friend, we can’t wait to meet them! We understand that not all pets are socialized in a large community setting, so please be your pets’ best advocate and make sure they are comfortable attending.

We’ve got your family pet covered!

The OPE offers two dog rest stations onsite, and same day re-entry with a stamp. We also understand that bathroom accidents happen but don’t worry, your VIP bag will have a poop bag to scoop up those accidents and we also have a specialized team on-hand to assist clean-up!

Bringing your pet to the expo?

Please download, complete, and print the pet waiver prior to the event. All pets must be on a 48” non-retractable lead and no greater. May we suggest a stroller or carrier for small pets so they can enjoy the Expo as well?

Alongside the OMAFRA/CFIA, the CPE team will be closely monitoring HPAI (Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza) throughout the summer months and will be routinely updating our website and social media on the status. Our biggest priority is ensuring that your pet bird is always kept safe. If the government issues a compliance order for Ontario, this will affect the Ottawa Pet Expo. If this happens, the Bird Zone will remain open at the expo, however no birds will be able to attend the show.
