It’s getting bigger every year and this year it is on our back door on the Gold Coast. 70 Stalls! Major sponsors ! Pets galore! Giveaways! Food! Need we say more? Probably not but we will.
Oh did I say puppies….? Well they’ll be there too!
We have made a list of the must visit stalls this year! And no we aren’t one of them unfortunately – maybe next year.
This years must stop stalls at the pet expo are…..
1 – Dogs Queensland
Your best stop for breeders and the information you’ve been searching for.
Because who doesn’t love a dog with a trick?! Find out about upcoming events, shows and maybe even meet the dogs!
For all of your pet lover needs. Collars, leads, presents and more.
It wouldn’t be a surprise that we are an advocate for this one… It’s tough to know what to do when the time comes so get some advice now. When the dreaded day comes you won’t be able to think about much but the endless cuddles.
Don’t forget a stop at Memorial Glass for another unique option. There are plenty of options available to you when that time does come.
Visit our Shop for more options.
Who doesn’t want gorgeous pics of their pet? Meet the team and see for yourselves how they can get that perfect ‘frameable’ shot for you.
6 – RSPCA
But which stall? I say visit them all. Support the people that support our pet community.
Are you an outdoors pet owner? Love the beach? We think this is a must see.
Need some QLD dog beach tips? See our blog post for more.
8 – The Pet Food Co
Did you say home delivered? Wonderful I’ll take a weekly delivery. My puppy is GREEDY.
Let’s also remember their food is healthy for your pet too.
We hope you all have great time at this year’s expo! Who knows, you might just see us next year!
Ps. Stop off at the Fire Fighters Calendar stall… we certainly will be.
Top Pet Names 2018 – What’s your pick?
We love pets and we like to stay posted on what is happening with all things pets! Pet names is one of our bloggers favourite topics, she has put together some name predictions for the coming year! Let us know what you think!
Out go the Buddy’s and in come the Frankie’s. Our Favourite names tend to be all the 4 lettered ones this year with lulu and coco being top hits from 2017! And Bella, Charlie, Ruby and Max staying for another year on the charts.
Frankie hit the top pet names list this year along with Coco and other alternate names like Luna! Bella, the pet favourite certainly hasn’t gone anywhere and Pet Insurance Australia doesn’t expect it to any time soon. We’ve loved watching the new names trickle in over the years! I wonder what will be the favourites in 2018? Here are our predictions!
With Some new movies coming out and some making a comeback we couldn’t help but add this children’s list to our predictions.

Looking for a dog beach to go to? We’ve put together a small list for Queensland.
We love a day on the beach and it’s made even better if we don’t have to leave someone behind! My Pup that is! Check our the below beaches you can enjoy as a family before we loose the warmth of February.
1 – Southport The Spit dog beach
This is a great option not too far from Brisbane or the southern part of the coast with plenty of play time to be had. Try to avoid the peak periods unless your pup is well socialised and ready for a little rough and tumble with the other pup beach goers.
2 – Palm Beach, Currumbin dog beach
A lovely relaxing spot a little further down the coast which is a great spot for families with pups and their children. Plenty of space to play and swim for all!
3 – Coolum, Sunshine Coast dog beach
A must visit before the summer is over this is the one we go to if we arnt headed to our secret spot listed below! The Stumers Creek Dog Beach is somewhere to spend mid morning or afternoon which is perfect for those extra hot days. Sit at a local café for lunch and then head back down for an afternoon splash.
SUPER SECRET – Cabarita Beach, NSW dog friendly beach
Now we are well aware this is not in Queensland but we just couldn’t help but share. This is an absolute gem of a place to visit. Get yourself to this part of the coast before it’s too late and the crowds swarm. Beautiful walks, cocktails bars with access to the beach, friendly locals and you may even spot a whale if you are lucky!
Happy Beaching to our Furry and not Furry friends.
Still With Me Team
