CFPE is a quality pet event that plans to deliver top-quality entertainment, demonstrations, presentations and the very latest products and services for pet owners and pet enthusiasts; literally an indomitable, one-stop setting for new goods and services. Some of the 300 vendors will be displaying:
· Pet-themed Artwork
· People Clothing
· Cleaning Supplies
· Grooming Supplies
· Leashes, Collars and Leads
· Pet Clothing
· Pet Beds and Other Furniture
· Containment System
· Security Products

And this is just the beginning of what is to come. Entertaining attractions will also entice the entire family. The breeders and rescues will even have canines of all ages to meet and greet so it is best to leave your canine in the comfort of their own home as they will not be invited in (*unless they are participating in a pet contest).
