ALL creatures furry, rough skinned and feathered will be at the free annual Peninsula Pet Expo on the Village Green in Rosebud 9am-3pm on Sunday 29 November, which is hosted by Mornington Peninsula Shire.
One highlight will be NSW dog trainer and qualified behaviourist “Farmer Dave” Graham with his “Muttley Crew”, a troupe of dogs dumped at animal shelters – because their owners couldn’t cope with their bad behaviour – which he has transformed into acclaimed performers.
Graham first came to attention as a competitor on TV reality show Big Brother and used his profile to open the Farmer Dave Dog Centre, a purpose-built dog training and sports centre in western Sydney for dogs and their owners.
His show includes information about animal behaviour and dog breeds.
Other highlights include milking of cows, horse grooming and horsemanship demonstrations, farm animals, miniature pony show, specialty breeds cat show, sheep herding and shearing, animal rescue groups, more than 40 exhibitors including birds of prey and reptiles, free face painting, and roving performers including Shaun the Sheep and Mr Peabody and Sherman.
Dogs must be on leads.
