A first for Waterloo as performing dog troupe takes over station


Southern Golden Retreivers Display Team

Commuters travelling through Waterloo in London last week were treated to an impressive performance by the Southern Golden Retreivers Display Team, which took over the station for the day. The appearance was in support of the troupe’s sponsor, pet food brand, Vet’s Kitchen, as it embarks on an educational campaign encouraging pet owners to realise the food they feed their pet today will shape its health tomorrow.

In a first for Waterloo Station, the display team created a range of geometric shapes to music to highlight the event’s educational theme of food shaping pet health. In between displays, visitors were also entertained by dancing dog champion, Skiffle, four-time winner of Freestyle Heelwork to Music at Crufts and Heelwork to Music, with owner, Lucy Creek.

Qualified vets, veterinary nurses and pet nutritional advisors were on hand to talk about the benefits of advanced pet nutrition and how ingredients can have a positive benefit on health. The free advice was designed to help owners feel more confident in making an informed choice about the food they feed their four legged friends. Visitors to the event were also able to pick up free samples of Vet’s Kitchen food to take home for their pet to try.

Jenny Philp, managing director and practicing vet at Vet’s Kitchen, said: “We’re passionate about educating the nation on feeding the right food to our four legged companions and as experienced vets, we know that a well-balanced and nutritious diet is a key factor for keeping pets happy and healthy.

“The event this week at Waterloo marked the start of our brand new campaign to raise awareness that just like us, our pets are what they eat. If there is no sufficient proof that an ingredient has a positive impact on an animal’s health, then it doesn’t make it into our food – it’s as simple as that. As a brand, we’re committed to being clear and transparent – and helping owners become the best pet parents they can be.”
