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 :)

The Best Rescue at Pet Expo 2009

Monday, September 14th, 2009

*the Best Rescue 2009*


Molly’s Pet Boutique and Pet Expo have teamed up to find the Best Rescue!


Molly herself is a rescue dog, taken in 7 years ago by the kind people at limerick animal welfare before being adopted by Claire and going on to have her very own pet boutique and website named after her! The purpose of this competition is not only to reward the people who made the choice to adopt rather than buy, but also to highlight the fact that
rescue animals make great pets and that there are plenty of them looking for homes in rescue centres all over the country.

The winner of the Best Rescue competition will get a fab prize from and will be used as a model on the website!

Molly VIP Tag-1

If you think your rescued pet deserves to be the Best Rescue, please email [email protected] with the following:

*Your name
*Your pets name, age and breed(s) if you know it!
*A little bit about your pet, where did he or she come from and how they ended up in rescue.
*Why you think your pet deserves to be the best rescue.
*Some pictures, particularly before and after pictures to show any progress your pet has made since you adopted them.

NB: you and your pet would need to be available to attend Pet Expo on either the Friday, Saturday or sunday. If your pet is nervous around large crowds or loud environments, entry is not recommended. Only enter your pet if you know they will enjoy the spotlight!

Pet Expo will be back at the RDS this 9th to 11th October and it’s shaping up to be even more fun than last year! Tickets are available now from

Hope to see you there!

Puppy Parties at Mollys!

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008


After a short break to accommodate the madness getting ready for Pet Expo,  our monthly puppy parties are back!

Socialising your puppy with other people and animals is imperative to your new family member’s development. A well socialised puppy is a happy puppy!

If you have a new puppy and would like to come along and socialise with other puppies and their owners, email us [email protected] and we’ll get back to you. We group our puppy VIP’s according to size and age so that they can have the best possible time.

We will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about your new family member and best of all, we all get to play with puppies!

***Please note that all puppies must have their vaccinations up to date to attend one of our parties. Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Unattended children will be given an espresso and a puppy to take home!*

*Not really, but they do need an adult with them to attend the event!  😉
