Our new addition to the family has introduced us to a new world of fun things – one of these things is Pup Aid 2018! If you’re not aware of Pup Aid, it’s the UK’s favourite star-studded dog show and world’s biggest anti-puppy farming event. Pup Aid 2018 is next Saturday, September 1st and will be held in Primrose Hill, London.
Pup Aid is a fun, free day out for all the family. This year looks set to be the biggest yet with a record number of stalls already signed up and special guests confirmed. There’s even going to be a fun and poignant ‘pink’ theme this year for Pup Aid founder Marc Abraham. ‘Marc The Vet’s’ biggest campaign for puppy welfare to date – Lucy’s Law – named in honour of ex-puppy farm breeding dog Lucy the rescue Cavalier.
As well as all things pink, visitors can enjoy freshly made cruelty-free vegan food, try the have-a-go agility course. As well as shopping for their pooch at a multitude of boutique stalls, meet ethical animal charities and enjoy amazing doggy displays too. The highlight of the day is always the incredibly moving parade of ex-breeding bitches rescued from UK puppy farms to remind visitors just what Pup Aid is all about. This is coupled with the fun dog show judged by some very familiar dog-loving faces; it really is a fantastic fun-filled day out for all the family – both two and four-legged!
It will be Duggee’s first trip into London, and I’m really excited for him to get to meet dogs of all shapes and sizes. He’s a very socialable pup, and something like this will be brilliant for him. I’m not sure he’ll last the WHOLE of Pup Aid 2018, it’s from 10am to 5pm – but I think he’ll have a fun few hours sniffing some other dogs, and having people fussing over him. Something that I didn’t realise about owning a puppy is just how many people stop you for a chat. Everything seems to take a little bit longer because everyone wants to make a fuss. It’s lovely!
So, if you’re at a loose end next Saturday, why not pop down to Pup Aid 2018? If you have a dog or not, it looks like a fun day out! All the details can be found here, if you can’t attend and want to give something to the Pup Aid charity, you can donate here.
