Dog Mania, organised by Merseyside Dogs Home, is the only indoor show in the UK where owners can bring their dog along to join in the shows and activities. With shows, competitions and a bustling market street with it is everything a dog or dog lover could ever wish for.
Dog Mania will combine live demonstrations, competitions, health checks, expert pet advice, photo-shoots, grooming…and even a doggie chill-out zone!
Visitors can delight in watching the stunning shows in the main arena, including the Dog and Duck Show, K9 2000, Kipperridge Gun Dogs, plus returning local favourites H&M Dog Training. The highly skilled handlers will be showing off their dogs’ obedience skills and agility, with everything from fire jumps to musical routines from the gun dogs and even an amazing performance from a duck-herding border collie!
Come along to meet our dog experts and veterinary professionals, where you can learn more about your dog’s diet, pick up health tips, ask questions and understand why your dog may behave in a certain way. Also see the brave rescue heroes, Dogs with Jobs, where you can meet (and stroke!) the real heroes of the show. Plus the dogs from both Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service and Merseyside Police will be at Dog Mania with their handlers to talk about the work carried out by these amazing animals.
Throughout the weekend, the dogs themselves will be able to take centre stage in The Fun Dog Show. Taking place in the main arena, this ever-popular friendly competition will see winners crowned in different categories, including Best In Show, Good Citizen Award and Fastest Dog. There’s even a Happiest Dog award, scientifically judged using our special wag-o-meter, with the grand final taking place on Easter Sunday. Hosted by CBeebies ‘My Pet & Me’ presenter, Ferne Corrigan, and with seven different categories there’s something for every dog – and even if yours isn’t lucky enough to win they may still take home a rosette. Entry into one show class is automatically included with each admission ticket meaning there’s no reason why your dog can’t be a star of the show!
