Orvis UK at The National Pet Show


Written by: Isobella Ash

This time last week our Orvis Dog Team were preparing to join you at the National Pet Show 2019 at the NEC in Birmingham.

Here at Orvis UK, we pride ourselves on making dog products of the highest quality because our furry friends deserve the best, so it was a pleasure to meet like-minded people who love animals with the same passion as we do. Our Dog Team was there to help provide customers’ loyal companions with toys, treats, dog beds, bowls, collars and crates—all lovingly designed for dogs.  

Our snoop toy and Orvis dog treats were increasingly popular with the Basset Rescue Network in the stand next door. Wilma the Basset was consistently pulling her owner over to have a play and we were happy to let her do so.

Thank you to all our dog influencers for visiting our stand, greeting visitors, taking pictures and demonstrating how much pups love our treats and snoop toys! We welcomed Honeyb, rolo.cockerspaniel, harleybear.29, harleyandraffles, citydogexpert, iris_ivy_violet_mini_sausages, oakleycocker, barriespaws, youmeandwoody, charlie.sausagedog, thesausageadventures, pawsacrossbritain, adventurewithmutts, and polka_dot_loki!

Thank you to everyone who took part in our lucky dip and congratulations to the winners of our prize draw, who won an Orvis hamper each worth more than £200!

We delighted to say that we’ve raised £300 for Pets As Therapy from our lucky dip £1 donation prize winners. This will go towards helping the PATs volunteers take their assessed and vetted pets to visit residential homes, hospitals, hospices, schools, day-care centres and prisons bringing joy, comfort and companionship to many individuals who appreciate being able to touch and stroke a friendly animal.

The event was a fantastic experience for everyone, and our team thoroughly enjoyed making a fuss of every dog that came our way. We look forward to seeing you at our next dog event in the new year!

    Just wanted to say thank you on behalf of Wilma (the Basset in the photo). She loved popping round to your stand for treats (several times, as she kept dragging me around to you ! :-). Might see you again next year. And your beds are lovely. If you ever feel like donating one (or a couple! 😉 ) to Basset Rescue Network GB, please do so!
