For the fourth time, the award winning Melbourne Dog Lovers Show returns to the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton from Friday 29 April to Sunday 1 May 2016.

Building on last year’s record breaking attendance, around 30,000 dog-tragics are expected to descend on the event which this year will be headlined for the first time by Bondi Vet's Dr Chris Brown!

Many other new faces will be joining the show line-up including renowned animal trainer, Peta Clarke (film dog training credits include the likes of Babe, Red Dog, Superman Returns and Wolverine) and Australian Working Dog Rescue Int. (AWDRI) ambassador Lauren Vickers.


Among many of the special doggy events include an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for distance cleared in a canine high jump. The current world record was set by an Australian Dog named Riley in Casterton clearing a height of 2.91 metres.

Visitors will also be able to find the latest and greatest stuff to spoil their pooch, with loads of free samples and fantastic new products and services being launched at the show – it’s like a giant supermarket for dogs.

As the ultimate event for dog lovers of all ages, the Melbourne Dog Lovers Show gives dog devotees an opportunity to celebrate and learn more about the companionship, unconditional affection and joy that our furry friends bring to our lives every day.

Oh and did we mention BondiVet.com will be on there?!... If you see us come say hello and take a picture with us. You might end up on our Facebook page!!!

How do I toilet train my cat

I rescued an adult female, desexed cat six months ago. Apparently she’s always been an outside cat. I have another cat who is mostly indoors and I would only let outside during the day if I was home. Luna didn’t like being indoors and wasn’t using the litter tray properly. I had her confined in the bathroom for a few days to get use to it and she would go next to it, rarely in it. She will sometimes use a tray otherwise will urinate or poop on the floor. I am at wits end. I have two trays, I’ve changed the type of litter, put dirt in the tray, picked up the poop and put it in the tray to show her that where it goes. I’ve used spray in the tray to attract her to want to use the tray. I bought felliway diffuser which is meant to calm cats and have also used the rescue remedy drops in her food. I’ve recently moved house where there is a cat enclosure so she can go in and out when ever she pleases but still goes in the kitchen (as I now close the bathroom door when she started going to the toilet in there), but tonight I noticed she’s been going in the spare room if anything is left on the floor which is carpeted. So I’ve now cleared that whole room to prevent her from going to the toilet. She is still going in the kitchen. I’ve tried cleaning the area and eliminating her scent by using water and vinegar then once dry use bi carb soda and hydrogen peroxide and it has made no difference. She’s been tested for a bladder infection which came up negative. I love animals. I have another cat which she now gets along with and two dogs which she is still getting use to. I don’t know what else to do and I don’t want to give her up but feel like I will have no choice.
