OMG I’m going to Global Pet Expo!
First of all it wasn’t on my radar to attend with my MaggieLovesOrbit hat on.
I went two years ago and had a great time! I also realized it was a very expensive venture.
And I figured I would just focus on attending SuperZoo.
But this year, as DOGTV’s Social Media Manager I was invited to join the team for our inaugural attendance as an exhibitor!
I’m super excited! I love being part of the DOGTV team.
And in case you need to know what DOGTV is … it allows you as a dog owner to have peace of mind when you leave your home.
Currently 60% of dog owners already leave some sort of TV or audio on for the dog.
DOGTV decided to intersect science with behavioral training to create television programming created for dogs to relax and entertain them.
Find me in booth number 4474!

My experience in 2018
Let’s just say if I were an animal I attended as a deer and all the headlights were on.
The show occupies about 45,000 square space. It was overwhelming and since it was my first time I didn’t know what to expect.
But … I did have some fangirl moments.
