Skinner’s Pet Food’s long association with gundogs is set to continue in 2017, as the company has renewed its sponsorship of the Gundog Row at this year’s Game Fair.
A key event at the heart of fieldsports, shooting and land management, the 2017 Game Fair will take place on July 28-30 at Hatfield House, in Hertfordshire. This will be the 59th Game Fair, and Gundog Row is a key focus throughout the three-day event and a popular attraction for visitors.
Skinner’s Petfood has been a major supporter of the Game Fair for many years and Will Delamore, Skinner’s sales director, thinks you would have to go back a very long way indeed to find one that Skinner’s hadn’t been involved with.
“We are always delighted to be involved with the Game Fair and are extremely honoured to be sponsoring their Gundog Row again,” he said. “As a company we have a long history of supporting the working and gun dog communities and in fact 2017 will be the 28th year we have sponsored the England Gundog Team and 3rd year we’ve sponsored the Scottish team too.”
“It has always been our aim to provide the best possible food for all active dogs and our Field & Trial range has been the perfect way to promote the link between good nutrition and happy, healthy working dogs. The Game Fair is a great way of meeting many of our customers and quite literally seeing our products in action!”
Catherine Chapman, commercial director of the Game Fair, added: “We are delighted that Skinners will once again be sponsoring and showing support to Gundog Row at The Game Fair 2017 at Hatfield House. The synergy is clear; Skinner’s knowledge and experience within this sector is unquestionable. The Gundog area is always a big draw for visitors and we welcome Skinners support.”
Spurred on by the success of Field & Trial with working dogs, Skinner’s has added a whole new premium range from early 2017, aimed at pets. ‘Life’ builds on Skinner’s extensive experience in developing the products for working dogs and offers a balanced range, using super premium ingredients, for all stages of a dog’s life. The new Life range comprises Puppy, Junior, Adult and Senior, with Sensitive available for dogs needing a fully hypo-allergenic option.
Skinner’s Petfood’s new Life range is abailable now in 12.5kg and 2.5kg bag sizes. The 2.5kg bags are re-sealable.
