Global Pet Expo is the pet industry's largest annual trade show featuring the newest, most innovative pet products on the market today. It is presented by American Pet Products Association (APPA) and the Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA).
Due to the safety concerns brought about by the pandemic, APPA's COO, Andy Darmohraj, announced that the Global Pet Expo is moving to a fully-digital experience in place of its live trade show for 2021.
Global Pet Expo Digital Access 2021 will take place on March 24-26. Since it is a full digital event, some aspects of the show will be different this year and unfortunately, there will be no Industry Visitor option for Global Pet Expo Digital Access. For now, it is open to independent retailers, distributors, mass-market buyers, and companies that purchase pet products wholesale.
Check out some of the coolest products we found when we visited the Global Pet Expo in 2015 that made us super excited to join the next live event in 2022!

Are you thinking of adopting a dog to bring home to the kids but are not sure which breeds can be considered safe? Because as much as we love dogs and their company, some breeds do not mix well with children. It could be due to several factors like personality traits, dog sizes, aggression, and more. What is clear is that these pooches are the ones to watch out for the most and should not meet your kids.
If you want to adopt a new dog, there is a chance that you may be conflicted between a big dog or a small dog, am I right? This decision can be tough to make for some. So, why not make it easier on yourself and consider a medium size dog instead?
Did you know that dogs are just as much at risk of getting skin cancer as we are? Seriously! Most of them are strongly susceptible to skin damage from sunburns, but not many people think that. And with the temperatures steadily rising, as we get closer to the spring/summer seasons, this can also mean more visits to the veterinarian if we are not careful.
Are you looking for a way to keep your overly-excitable pooch distracted and busy when you are too busy to play with them? If this is the case, then what you need is a dog treat dispenser. This is because boredom is one of the many reasons that lead to dogs chewing up furniture or even acting overly aggressive sometimes.
Are you trying to figure out what is the best dog breed to bring home to your family? There is no question that dogs make great companions, and if you have kids they are a great way to help teach them the value of responsibility and unconditional love. The tricky part is choosing the right dog to blend in with your family lifestyle, and if you are looking for some medium sized dogs, then you have come to the right place!
