On Wednesday 10th May and Wednesday 17th May we celebrated the launch of our new Dog Club in our London and Harrogate stores. Orvis welcomed over 50 canines through our doors. With their wagging tails, floppy tongues and attentive ears, our VIPs (Very Important Pooches) had a great time meeting new doggie friends and their owners – as well as sampling tasty treats from The Dog Treat Company and being pampered with love and affection by their adoring fans.

London Launch – Wednesday 10th May 2017

We were lucky enough to be graced with royalty of canine and human variety. Marcel Le Corgi was a popular guest with many recognising him from his starring role in the introduction to the Queen’s Christmas Broadcast last year and he posed beautifully next to the charming Georgia Toffolo of Made in Chelsea royalty. We were also delighted to welcome representatives from the Pets as Therapy charity and their amazing dogs of all shapes and sizes from Cesc the tiny Jack Russell Cross to Fudge the handsome chocolate Labrador.

Harrogate Launch – Wednesday 17th May 2017

We welcomed canines of all shapes and sizes, from Pugs and Sausage Dogs to French Bulldogs and Labradors. We were also fortunate enough to meet Emmerdale star Emma Atkins and her pooch Ringo! Orvis Ambassador Marina Gibson and her dog Sedge were also in attendance.

Both evenings were pawsitivey fantastic. Our canine companions behaved extremely courteously to each other whilst their owners swapped tips and shared tales about the joys of being a dog owner. It was a pleasure to bring together like minded dog lovers to share and celebrate the joys of our four legged friends. All of us at Orvis are extremely excited for all that The Orvis Dog Club has in store for the future.
