The event concluded with a prize distribution ceremony, where prizes and certificates were distributed among participants.
Several pet lovers emphasised that the pet show should be made a regular feature of the city. One of them suggested that there should also be a platform at the show where dog owners can share their problems to improve the health and behaviour of dogs.
