Showcasing the very best in caravans, recreational vehicles, 4×4 accessories, and lifestyle and outdoor camping accessories, the event will also feature a ‘Paw Patch’ stage of pet related presentations including Lara and Darcy on stage providing tips and information on everything you need to know about traveling with your pets

Lara’s Pet Travel Tips Talk will occur at the following times:
Thursday: 11.15am – 12.00pm, 12.30pm – 1.15pm & 1.45pm – 2.00pm

Lara will provide some key tips for travelling with your pet and keeping them comfortable, safe and calm during the travel and whilst away.  A pre-departure checklist and what you need to be aware of before you head away, some common behaviour issues you might need help with when travelling with your dog, tips for crate training and helping cats and dogs that have anxiety with car travel, and much more. Lara will also be hanging around to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your own dog.

PETstock will also be selling a wide range of accessories that will help keep your pet safe and comfortable whilst you are away on your travels, so head to the Paw Patch to hear Lara and meet Darcy (and get free kisses of course) and take your dog along too so you can talk to the staff at PETstock about any questions you may have or get them fitted for car safety harnesses, water floatation jackets, travel crates and much more.
