Discover Dogs to return to London in 2021

Discover Dogs is set to return to London next year, and will be hosted at the ExCeL London on 20 November and 21 November 2021

The event, which was first held in 1996, did not take place this year due to the ongoing pandemic, but plans are now in place for its 25th anniversary event. 

The Kennel Club said it hopes the event will offer “thousands of dog lovers the unique opportunity to meet and greet around 200 different pedigree breeds”, as well as provide an opportunity to educate prospective dog owners on choosing the right breed. 

The event is set to feature training displays, the Young Kennel Club ring and other different canine competitions, including the Good Citizen Dog Scheme pre-beginner stakes southern semi-finals, and possibly the Junior Warrant semi-finals. 

Vanessa McAlpine, events executive at The Kennel Club, said: “Discover Dogs is a fun event for any dog lover, and celebrates our unique relationship with dogs in addition to educating people about the importance of choosing the right breed for their lifestyle and making sure they buy a puppy responsibly. 

“The event provides the opportunities for prospective dog owners to meet breeders and to learn how to care, train and live with different breeds and help make responsible choices when buying a puppy or getting a dog.”

She added: “However, the show isn’t just for prospective dog owners – we welcome dog lovers of all ages to come along and find out about the work of The Kennel Club, such as The Kennel Club Breed Rescue organisations who do fantastic work for dogs who aren’t as fortunate as others. 

“The show aims to give visitors the best advice, whether that’s buying a puppy or rehoming a rescue dog, so that the most informed decision can be made for both the dog and its owner.”
