Ultimate Reptile Event!

The Canadian Reptile Breeders Expo along with sister events (CPE, Aquatic Expo, and Plant Expo)  is an absolute pet friendly family event. Whether your family member is a furry, feathery, or scaley friend, we can’t wait to meet them! We understand that not all pets are socialized in a large community setting, and may have special requirements, so please be your pets’ best advocate and make sure they are comfortable attending.

Bringing your pet to the expo?

Please download, complete, and print the pet waiver prior to the event. Our canine and feline friends must be leashed on a non-retractable lead, with a maximum length of 48”.  Small mammals, birds and lizards must be tethered in a secure harness/tether system, while all other reptiles must be in appropriate travel containers.  Snakes are not permitted to be worn around the neck & shoulders or to be outside their container.  We want all pets to be safe and secure.

Birds at the Expo

Alongside the OMAFRA/CFIA, the CPE team will be closely monitoring HPAI (Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza) throughout the summer months and will be routinely updating our website and social media on the status. Our biggest priority is ensuring that your pet bird is always kept safe. If the government issues a compliance order for Ontario, this will affect the Canadian Pet Expo. If this happens, the Bird Zone will remain open at the expo, however no birds will be able to attend the show.
