Fabulous day out with lots and lots of doggies!
Platinum Petcare will be hosting another of their famous BINGO nights to raise funds for Bristol DAWG! An added bonus to this Septembers night is the Christmas Present Auction. Lots range from LUSH gift sets, Pet Munchies treats and tickets to fabulous attractions such as Old Down Manor, Avon Valley Country Farm Park and lots more!
So come on down on 27th September at Little Stoke Social Club, 7pm!
The calendar competition drew to a close last week. We had over 250 photos entered and had to whittle them down to just 36! It was an unenviable task and one that took us 3 days to deliberate over. Finally though, we picked our chosen few who will take pride of place in the Bristol DAWG Calendar 2015. The rosettes & certificates are currently making their way to the lucky winners, and the fabulous Neil at Colour Digital Print is working his magic to create the calendar.
We are now taking pre-orders of the 2015 calendar which will be priced at £5 each. To order please email: email@example.com so we ensure that we order enough and people aren't left disappointed. They make fantastic Christmas presents and a example of last years can be seen below.
All of the winners from each month can be found on our Facebook page
Thank you to everyone who supported the calendar competition, we raised £375!
The summer holidays get under way this week meaning one of the busiest times of
Year for us! We have countless numbers of dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, gerbils, hamsters, chickens and the odd budgie to take care of. If you make last minute plans please make sure you call us first on 0845 388 0309. We will try where we can to fit in your lovely pets but we are extremely busy!

Some of the Platinum Petcare team attended Trevor Coopers Dog Law Seminar at the Bath Cats & Dogs Home on Saturday. He is a very entertaining speaker and extremely knowledgeable on all things relating to Dogs and the Law. The introduction of the new Anti Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill will see tougher penalties for those with dangerous dogs, but it seems to fall short on trying to solve the problem of irresponsible dog owners.
The huge importance of having third party liability insurance for your dog was also highlighted. Even if you feel you don't need Pet Health Insurance, it is without doubt worth taking out 3rd party, especially with the tougher laws that are coming into force. Dogs Trust offer free third party liability if you become a member. It costs £25 per year and can be found here: Dogs Trust Membership
Trevor offers Webinars on his website, where you can learn about BSL, DDA and Dogs Act 1871. Well worth having a look! www.doglaw.co.uk
Big thank you to Bath Cats & Dogs Home for hosting Trevor. We really learnt a lot about the law as it stands, the proposed changes and also the further changes that need to be made, especially when it comes to Breed Specific Legislation!
There are just over 3 days left to grab yourself some bargains in the Platinum Petcare Charity Auction Raising funds for Bristol DAWG. With over 40 lots to choose from there really is something for everyone. Please dig deep and help us raise lots and lots of money for the wonderful Hounds :)
