Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

The third annual edition of PetFed, India’s biggest Pet festival was held in New Delhi on 17th-18th December, 2016 at the NSIC Grounds, Okhla.  About 25000 people and 2500 pets attended it over the weekend. This was one of a kind festival which celebrated the love and affection between the pets and their owners.

This festival saw the top-notch services and products essential for pets and had a fashion show exclusively for pets, setting new standards in the pet fashion world. The showstopper for the same was Dino Morea, a model, actor and an animal lover.  In a conversation with DU Beat, he urged people to “adopt a stray dog in the new year.”

PetFed 2016 also had a special art gallery for dogs, an all exclusive cafe for dogs serving ‘dog beers and pizzas’, pet bakeries and swings and rides for dogs! The 3 acre lush green area brimming with cute pooches could brighten up anyone’s weekend. Each pet had its own unique story which made us laugh. So without further adieu, we bring to you 5 stories of pets from PetFed 2016:

1.Chanel ( Jack Russell Terrier, 2 year old)


“She is very protective and possessive of me, so much so that she never lets me pet her sister. We named her Chanel because she is as classy and pretty as the French label.”

  1. Bunny (Beagle, 2 year old)


“Bunny is territorial when it comes to the couch and it’s a sight to behold how he sleeps in this one peculiar position. He loves chocolates and even though its bad for him, once I while I have to give in. We named him Bunny after Ranbir Kapoor’s character in Ye Jawani Hai Deewani.”

  1. Thunder (Siberian Husky, 1.5 year old)


“Thunder loves to hug other dogs, but if they don’t respond similarly he gets hurt. He looks extra riveting because he’s dichromatic. He gets lots of attention.”

  1. Coco( Chihuahua, 3 year old)


“He absolutely hates pigeons and has taken up the responsibility of guarding my mother’s garden from them. Also, he’s quite an intelligent dog and even protects the pigeon eggs when pigeon mom is not around!”

  1. Joey (Maltese Shih Tzu, 2 months old)


“He is named after my favourite FRIENDS character, ‘Joey’. He playfully bites everything that comes his way and is super-comfortable around girls but not around guys!”
