World of Dogs and Cats

World of Dogs and Cats

This is definitely one that you might have to track if you are really keen on the visit. An annual event, but with cities like, Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg playing host over the years, you really need to check up on its whereabouts before you ruch out to experience it. The primary purpose for holding an event like this is to expose the public to purebred dogs and cats and inform them of what responsible dog, cat and pet ownership involves. Each year the organisers endeavour to improve and develop the event and to demonstrate all facets of activity to those that either already have or are considering the pleasure and responsibility of owning a pet.

The first WODAC or World of Dogs and Cats Exhibition was held in Durban in 1996 at the Durban Exhibition Centre and in 2003 the show was taken to The Dome in Johannesburg where it was a resounding success. The 2006 exhibition at the Coca Cola Dome saw the introduction of our third arena for demonstrations and displays which proved very popular - the dancing with dogs competitions and displays, took place throughout the weekend and had audiences absolutely enthralled with their dazzling performances. 2007 made a welcome return to Durban and featured many more special competitions for pet lovers to enter, enjoy, win prizes and join-in as an integral part of the show in aid of animal welfare. WODAC made its debut in Cape Town in November 2010 with great success and a really fantastic weekend was had by all. Wodac 2011 was held at the Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand and was a resounding success and it is here that the 2012 Expo will be held again. Visitors can look forward to loads of exciting arena entertainment, trade stands featuring pet accessories, pet food and pet products, welfare stands, clubs and breeders, prestigious cat and dog show, birds, fish and reptiles all set to delight new and returning visitors to the show.

For the average man in the street, it is often very difficult to make a decision on which breed of dog or cat to choose when purchasing an animal. The expos Breeder, Club and Trainer area and the Hall of Cats, gives the visitor a great opportunity to see numerous breeds and talk to the owners. Each breed has its own personal characteristics and experts on the various breeds are on hand to give good advice to potential owners. Visitors will find all the help they need to choose the right pet for their family circumstances. The welfare stands will have their own area to enable them to promote the great work that they do. But there is more for the visitor to enjoy and learn from... From the beautiful show dogs and cats, the top obedience and agility dogs to the Hall of Birds, Fish, Cats etc and the all exciting arena events where visitors will enjoy the various dog activities in the three arenas - Dancing with Dogs, Agility, Dog Jumping, Wodac 60-Weaving Pole Challenge, Fly Ball, Canine Good Citizen, Obedience and Carting displays to name but a few. Pet food manufacturers, healthcare companies, pet product and accessory suppliers, trainers, animal welfare organisations, dog and cat clubs and more. Organisers are sure that visitors will once again enjoy the entertaining interactive displays by exhibitors and learn more about the joys of responsible pet ownership and the positive role they play in society. WODAC 2012 will be taking place from 20 to 22 July 2012 at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand.
