Negativity isn't warranted. Despite less vendors, I thought the organizers did a good job, and the rescues present took a lot of time prepping. As one of the vendors educating about breeding operations (mills), I am disgusted that anyone would think that is a waste of time. We spend time and money to do these things. Thank you to the planners of the Pet Expo!

It was mine and my pups first time and it was great! Great vendors that shared not only knowledge but product as well! The other people attending were also fantastic! My pup is well behaved but fearful when strangers try to approach her and I was beyond happy to have so many people respect her enough to ask permission! Thank you!
- Amanda Noll, via Facebook
I wished there were more things to do. I stayed for almost two hours and didn't see any races or shows frown emoticon but it was better then last years!! I think the pug in the car and winning a free bag of litter was the best part smile emoticon.

"GoodDoggie Boutique! Incredible customer service providing assistance sizing no-pull harness purchased at expo that works like magic. The expo and convention center personnel/staff were excellent.
