Bay Area Pet Expo
The Bay Area Pet Expo™ is organized by Amazing Expos™, which currently produces more than 40 expos around the country; all of them indoors and free to the general public.

Note the following:

1. Only bring your pet along if she is well behaved, non-aggressive and doesn’t get stressed out in crowded, noisy situations. Dogs must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet long.

2. Your dog must be current on his vaccinations. A rabies tag is acceptable as proof of immunization. If you don’t have a tag, please bring proof of immunization with you. If your dog is not up to date on his shots, low-cost vaccinations and micro-chipping are offered right at the expo.

3. You’ll be required to sign a pet waiver at the entrance, but you can avoid waiting in line by visiting the Bay Area Pet Expo website to fill your pet waiver form out in advance.

4. Designated pet-potty areas will be located outdoors. Please be kind and pick up after your pet.

5. Many exhibitors offer some sort of treat for pets. If your pet has a sensitive stomach or is super excited, you may want to consider allowing your pet one or two treats and then save the rest for later. We see a lot of dogs gobble up as many treats as possible only to - ahem - urp them up a few hours later.

6. If you are attending the expo with the intent of adopting a new family member, you may want to either bring a crate or some sort of car restraint with you, or be prepared to purchase a crate at the show. And one more important tip if you’re planning on bring your two-legged children also:

7.  Please review safe dog greeting behaviors with your children before attending the show. Remind your child to always ask the owner’s permission to pet an animal, allow the calm pet to sniff their hands and then they should gently pet the animal’s chest or back (not the top of its head), speaking calmly and quietly to the pet.
