County Armagh-based natural pet food manufacturer Naturo is the headline partner of the Naturo SuperDog Awards 2021 with Touchpoint Live Media.

With dog ownership rising dramatically during the pandemic lockdown, including 2.2 million dogs bought between March and September 2020 alone, the new awards aim to recognise the positive impact dogs have on our lives as well as promoting responsible dog ownership throughout the UK and Ireland.
Nominations are now open, with dog owners invited to share stories of how their dogs make a difference to their lives, from carrying out extraordinary feats of bravery to simply providing companionship through lockdown. Entries close on July 31, followed by a judging process with winners picked across seven categories.
The Naturo SuperDog Awards will be hosted by TV personality Stacey Dooley and take place at a celebrity-hosted evening in London this November, with shortlisted nominees and their owners invited to the red-carpet event.  

All award winners will win prizes, including a night’s stay in a top London hotel, VIP tickets to Dogfest and Big Dog Walk events of their choice and bespoke commemorative trophies as well as hampers worth up to £1,000 for runners-up.  
“Here at Naturo, pets and their health and wellbeing are at the forefront of everything that we do,” said John Mackle, managing director of Mackle Petfoods. “We recognise and celebrate the incredible bond between dogs and their pet parents and how this bond is only growing ever stronger, especially throughout 2020, with so many of us spending more time at home.
“So, when we were approached about getting involved with the Superdog Awards, which will acknowledge and reward those four-legged family members in our lives for going above and beyond for us or for having faced incredible hardship, it seemed like the perfect fit with our Naturo values and beliefs.
“We are really excited to be part of this fantastic initiative and hope to continue to acknowledge and reward deserving dogs for many years to come.”
