Mollys at Pet Expo 2011

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

We’re very excited at Mollys HQ as it’s almost Pet Expo time again! One of the most fun filled weekends in our calendar is taking place this year at the RDS Dublin on the 8th and 9th of October – that’s this weekend!

Mollys will be launching our new Pet Food Subscription Service at Pet Expo (we’re so excited about it – no more running out of food ever again!) with a prize draw for anyone who signs up on the day.

We’ll also have a stand selling a selection of our pet collars, leads, harnesses, beds, bowls, clothes and other treats, not to mention pet costumes which you’ll need if you want to enter our competition on the main stage!

As Molly herself loves the attention she gets when she dresses up, we thought it might be fun to have an owner and dog fancy dress competition at Pet Expo this year. No need to register in advance, just call over to us 10 minutes or so before the show starts. We have a range of pet costumes available or you can get creative and make your own! Bonus points will be given for humans in matching/co-ordinating Halloween costumes but it’s not essential, the most important thing is to enjoy taking part :)

*A note about Pets and Halloween*
As pet owners ourselves, we much prefer keeping our pets safe indoors and included in the celebrations on Halloween. You don’t have to dress your pet up of course but please, please don’t let them outside where they might get harmed or get scared and run away. Halloween can be a very scary time for your pets!

Well behaved dogs are welcome to come along to Pet Expo but must be kept on a maximum of a 6′ lead (no extendables!)

We’ll be at stand F8 in the “Barks and Spenders” shopping mall, please stop by and say hi, we’d love to see you!

The Dog Beauty Pageant At Pet Expo 2010

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

The must see event for pet lovers Pet Expo has moved to the new summer date of 2nd – 4th July for 2010 – that means there’s just two weeks to go till the fun begins! :)

Mollys Pet Boutique have been involved with Pet Expo from the very start and we always like to bring a fun, interactive event to the main stage. In the past we have had several pet fashion shows, The Ireland’s Next Top Dog Model competition and The Best Rescue competition.

This year as Pet Expo will be taking place on 4th July weekend, we thought it would be fun to host an American style beauty pageant…. but for dogs!

There will be a panel of judges each day of Pet Expo but instead of the human pageant Eveningwear and Talent rounds there will be prizes for the following categories to name a few:
Best Eyes
Best Smile
Best Outfit
Best Talent/Trick
Best matching owner and dog outfits
Best Personality
Overall Pageant King or Queen

The Beauty Pageant is a fun event – no need to spray tan your dog or get all stressed about it! If your dog mixes well with other dogs and people, enjoys dressing up and getting lots of attention, is comfortable in busy environments and enjoys having FUN with you then just fill in this application form and we’ll see you there :)

Caylyn is the Best Rescue 2009!

Monday, October 12th, 2009

Caylyn, the beautiful whippet/greyhound cross was crowned the Best Rescue 2009 at Pet Expo in the RDS yesterday.


Poor Caylyn was taken in by North Wexford SPCA after being found at the side of the road. They initialy thought she had been hit by a car but the vet discovered she had actually been shot in the shoulder!

She now has a wonderful home with a loving family and is growing more confident all the time. She had a consultation with pet behaviourist Jim Stephens at the show who assured her loving owner Barbara that Caylyn was doing great.

Caylyn will be having a photo shoot for our new website in the next few weeks, we look forward to seeing her strut her stuff!

In second place was Bonnie, the beautiful and energetic “cappuchino terrier” from Navan who will be competing in the Dublin Marathon for charity this year! She also took part in the Dog Training Ireland agility displays over the weekend.

Joint third place was awarded to Poppy the Yorkie cross, a gorgeous Dogs in Distress rescue (in the middle of the group picture in her owner Gwen’s arms) and Jake the ex DSPCA adorable shaggy bundle of energy we christened a beardy/black rug cross as we had no idea what breed he was!


Congratulations to all of our competitors and their loving owners, it was lovely to meet you and we hope you had as much fun as we did over the weekend. Thanks again for taking part and helping us to spread the word that rescues make great pets!

We will be attending the Tattersalls International Horse Trials this bank holiday weekend as part of a new addition to this great family event.

We will have a selection of our products for sale at the house; including dog and cat collars, pet treats, pet beds, dog and cat toys and more.

Claire will be also giving a couple of talks in the seminar room. One on preparing for a new pet and what to expect as a first time pet owner and another on the top ten questions we get asked here in Mollys, so hopefully there will be some helpful hints and tips for pet owners.

There will be lots of other fun family activities going on as well including beauty treatments and lots more, we hope to see you there!
