Bring your kids and pets (no, we’re not kidding) to the Schaumburg Convention Center’s Windy City Pet Expo July 25, and stay at the nearby and affordable Elk Grove Chicago Hotel!
Play! Shop! Learn! Adopt! If you don’t bring a Fido, adopt a Fido at the Windy City Pet Expo!
There is a costume contest for best dressed pet! Enjoy the Agility Demonstrations, testing a dog’s ability to work with its owner or trainer. Dogs will weave through pole mazes, jump though tires and negotiate a teeter totter. Enjoy the David Letterman-esque Pet Trick Competition! Does your pet sing? Dance? Juggle? Show us!
Also at the Windy City Pet Expo: the Musical Chairs Contest for dogs and dog owners! Music is played as dogs and owners circle the chairs, and when the music stops, owner sits in chair, doggie sits on command. Sit, Fido, sit! And there will be loads of exhibitors, two-legged and four-legged prize giveaways, discounted shots and micro-chipping, free nail trims, live entertainment, food and drink, author book signings and much more!
