Asda Hero Dog 2017-09-12T14:30:03+00:00

To celebrate the relaunch of HERO dog food ASDA are inviting you to tell them all about your four legged friend who deserves to be recognised for their heroic behaviour or attitude.

In our minds all rescue dogs have demonstrated heroic behaviour just by looking and finding their forever home, or perhaps your dog has actually carried out a heroic action saving a child, or alerting you to a fire or burglary – so tell us all about it!

At the show Lucy Heath and her dog Trip Hazard from Britain’s Got Talent fame will be joined by Jo Lloyd from Smooth North West to announce the winner.

Winners will receive a fabulous HERO prize hamper from ASDA and lots of goodies featuring their new HERO range to say well done from all of us.

All nominations must be submitted by the 31st August 2017 and all finalists will be notified by the 1st September 2017.

You can nominate your dog by sending us a maximum of 200 words about why your dog deserves to be a finalist – include a picture as we love to see your dog in person.

Our panel will select 10 finalists at the end of August who will all be invited to attend the Family Pet Show on the 30th September and the 1st October along with their heroic dog and the rest of the family. 10 Puppy Finalists will be chosen and 10 Dog Finalists will be chosen. A puppy is classed as anything under 18 months.

Once the finalists are selected we will share on social media and ask The Family Pet Show fans to vote for the dog they think deserves to win – you can of course share with your own friends to get votes for your hero hound.
