The North Bengal Exotic Pet Association (NBEPA) organised a pet dog show in the Siliguri subdivision of Darjeeling district of West Bengal on Sunday to spread awareness among the people on how to take care of their pets at home.

The NBEPA secretary Avijit Banik elaborates that over 125 dogs of different breeds participated in the show, such as pugs, poodles, Golden Retriever, Dalmatians, and more.

"Doctors have recommended that people who keep dogs as pets in their homes need to reduce stress. From next year on, we will organise this event on a larger scale," he says.

According to Banik, the main motto of the show is to spread the message that everyone should love and adopt dogs.

Abbash, a first-time participant of the event, says, "In this event, I learned about vaccination for dogs and hygiene maintenance."

Dogs from various parts of the city and from the adjacent states of Sikkim, Bihar and Jharkhand took part in the show.
