Dog Friendly Celebration Event in Castle Douglas

DOG owners can treat their pets to a range of canine-friendly experiences at a charity celebration event in Castle Douglas this month.

WCF’s Pet & Equestrian store on New Market Street is holding the event on Saturday, October 28 to mark the launch of its own brand dog food.

The in-store event will include an afternoon tea designed especially for dogs with treats such as dog-friendly cupcakes and Pawsecco, complimentary goodie bags, and a special selfie-stand. There will also be free nutritional advice and one-to-one sessions for solving common pet problems.

The WCF team will be raising money for its chosen charity, Kirkcudbright-based Maggie Fleming Animal Hospice, with a collection on the day, and bags pre-filled with items selected specifically to support its work available to purchase and donate.

Jade Earley, General Manager of WCF Pet & Equestrian, said: “The event aims to celebrate everything we love about dogs, while also raising money for The Maggie Fleming Animal Hospice to give something back in recognition of the brilliant work they do.”

The celebration day, which runs from 10am to 4pm, also features pop-up shops from local artists and makers, a free prize draw to win WCF vouchers, and competitions including the chance for pets to become WCF’s next Top Canine Model and feature on its social media channels.

The event marks the launch of WCF’s premium own brand dry dog food, The Lakes Collection, which has been inspired by the company’s long-standing Cumbrian heritage and connection with the Lake District.
