As most of you will know, April only means one thing –National Pet Month, a time when we can celebrate our furry friends. Activities and events are being run throughout the month, all with the aim of celebrating responsible pet ownership and help pet charities raise money for their causes.
As dog owners it is a great opportunity to get involved in everything from Big Walkies events, to one off competitions and fur friendly fund-raising events.
One company getting on board this year is online retailer,Modern Rugs, who this week unleashed their competition to find Britain’s most relaxed cat and dog. As our beloved pets notoriously like to curl up on a rug in front of the fire, which is why Ben Dale, Managing Director at Modern Rugs, thought it would be the perfect partnership:
“We are a nation of pet-lovers and there’s something utterly British about a dog or a cat laid out ona rug in the living room, so we thought why not celebrate this by finding the country’s most relaxed pet? We’re looking for any kind of dog or cat in any situation – there’s only one criteria to meet and that’s that they are relaxed!”
So if you think that you pooch has what it takes to be crowned Britain’s most relaxed dog, tweet your photo to @modernrugsuk with the hashtag #Modernmutts before April 14th, for your chance to get your paws on some purrfect prizes!
The Mog and Mutt with the most retweets by the end of the week will win goodie bags provided by health conscious pet food company, Vet’s Kitchen. Marketing Manager at Vet’s Kitchen, Maria Vitale, explained that they were delighted to be involved in National Pet Month:
“We strongly believe in promoting responsible pet ownership and we aim to help the health and well-being of cats and dogs by formulating foods with high-quality, natural active ingredients that deliver visible, long-term improvements. We like to see relaxed, happy pets and the Modern Rugs competition is a great way to demonstrate this.”
An overall winner will then be chosen and will also get their paws on free pet insurance for a year.
Best of Luck!
