Our friends at the DECC have clued us into a fun family event coming in September. Petlandia Pet Expo is bringing some furry fun to the Northland.

There will be some awesome demonstrations too! DockDogs Northern Stars is one of the main acts, and you really need to check these guys out.

Here's a video of them in action from a previous expo.

Petlandia would also like to feature your talented pet! They have a Petlandia's Video Fest where they'll play a reel on the big screen of all the videos at the Pet Video Fest Theater. It's your chance for your pet to shine!
