Melbourne Dog Lovers Show

On the 4-6th May, Indie Boho exhibited at the Melbourne Dog Lovers Show (DLS), which was held in the grand Royal Exhibition Building. It was a great way for many of our fans and followers to view our full range of products and for many more to discover us for the first time. We were told over and over again that the quality of our products feel even better in real life, which is often difficult to fully appreciate in photos. We loved all the feedback we were getting. This one-of-a-kind expo is the best that Australia has to offer, dedicated entirely to dogs and open to the public and trade, with plenty of samples being handed out and products available for purchase. The first Dog Lovers Expo was held in Melbourne in 2013 and attendance has more than doubled since then. This year the official attendance was over 37,500 visitors over the 3 days. 

Dog Lovers Show Melbourne Indie Boho

Indie Boho shared a booth with the fabulous Soapy Moose who had a huge range of handmade accessories on display- vibrant collars, harnesses, haltis, leashes in contemporary and fun designs that drew customers in. We had one of the most colourful stands at the show and were in a great location, close to Sniffr who we supported with their treasure map activity and prizes. Other stand-out booths were Big Dog Pet Foods and Go Get Me who sell membership boxes, full of treats and toys. There was a lot of entertainment with the Insta Pooch stage, a massive pool set-up outside for dogs to perform in, a stage inside where we caught Katrina Warren a few times (our favourite TV show 20 years ago was Harry’s Practice!). And the pet-a-pooch and dog breed areas upstairs, where children and adults alike could pat a number of dogs.

Thank you for having us Melbourne and for the resellers we have picked up since. And to finish off, here’s Hamish, looking pretty chuffed about the bed he won from our show giveaway!  – Sora
