We are heading to #Crufts

We are delighted to announce that once again they will be bringing our premium food and treats to Crufts and throughout the four days ‘Goodie Bags’ will be available to purchase from Stand 66 in Hall 1.

Each ‘Goodie Bag’ will contain a canvas treat bag, money off vouchers and three different Harringtons treats. With six delicious varieties available your bag could contain tasty rich in liver Training Treats, crunchy Teeth & Gum Treats, meat free Sensitive Treats, tempting Salmon rolls, calcium enriched Puppy & Junior Treats or the latest addition to the treat range Chicken Rolls. These oven baked treats are suitable from 8 weeks old and as with the entire Harringtons range are free from added wheat and sugar, artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.

As if promises of treats were not enough to lure you to their stand, Harringtons are also bringing some ‘Doggy Experts’ with them. Thursday will see Sarah Hanson and her springer spaniel take to the stand. She is a qualified gun dog and obedience trainer and will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. On Friday the Harringtons team will be joined by Harvey and Millie two search dogs from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service accompanied by their handlers Andy Earl and Sean White. On Saturday Gina Scott and her top agility dog Bayley will be showing you how to get more fun out of training your dog and the focus on training continues on Sunday with Merlin, an Australian Sheep Dog, and David Deakins from Benefit Dog Training Club.

Also while visiting the stand why not try your luck at the ‘Find the Bone’ competition to win a cosy Harringtons fleece for yourself and your dog? This year once again there will be a professional photographer, David Swidenbank, on the stand allowing you to have your dog’s photo taken free of charge and 12 lucky dogs will be chosen to feature in the 2015 Harringtons calendar.

Are you going to come and say hi??

Crufts 2012

Hee hee – did you see it on the telly?

I am sure that I don’t have to tell you, but last weekend saw Crufts 2012 come to the NEC in Birmingham, and in a very exciting turn of events I was allowed out of the office for the day to go and explore!

I was VERY excited and pleased to see that the journey did not take as long as I had feared (it did look a very long way on the map, and my dad’s singing is not so great!)

Luckily there were some hints for him to follow! Thank you sign makers!

Obviously the first thing I had to do when I arrived was to check out my stand; well it did have my face all over it so I wanted to make sure I looked great!

Looking good, even if I do say so myself!

I had a bit of a sniff around to see who had been there before me before I decided to go and check out the doggy competition.

Have you ever seen so many different doggies?

I have never seen so many doggies before in my life (and I come from a big family) the doggies there were of all shapes and sizes – some were tiny and others I think were more horse than dog!

The jury is still out on this one!!!!

They were all looking very lovely and smelt of soap and other yucky things, and seemed to be thoroughly enjoying all the attention. They were very good at lining up and standing nicely, almost still (dad said I would never have made the grade – so rude!)

A fab line up!

and more brilliant line ups

they stood on tables…..

A very good table stand!

And spectated….

The show is happening behind you!!

It was definitely the place to be if you are a dog, and this is obviously a very well-known fact as not only was us proper dogs there but there were also toy doggies…

So cute!

And this! 

???????????????

I don’t know what this is –  I think it’s a dog?!

I did have so much fun, and there was so much to see, but for me the highlight of the day was meeting one of my long lost relatives, we have the same mother or grandmother (I wonder how removed that makes me?) 

My long lost……..relative!?!

All in all I can give my paw of approval to Crufts this year, and hope to see you all there next year!

5 paw prints out of 5!!
