Super Pet Expo is an animal lover's convention that induces enthusiasm in pets and pet owners alike, enlivening their weekend with whimsical shows and unique pet products not usually sold in stores. Browse merchandise from more than 150 pet-related exhibitors, then slither over to the repticon reptile showcase to meet a scaly menagerie of exotic reptiles. EVO World Class Frisbee Dog Show presents an acrobatic pack of drooling disc catchers, and the puppy playground lets rambunctious pooches run, roll over, and play poker on 5,000 square feet of canine-cavorting heaven.
Those interested in zoological fame and fortune can marvel at the porcine palette of Smithfield, the Painting Pig or attend a workshop from animal talent agent Dawn Wolfe for advice on how to make pets the next Lassie or Mr. Ed.
