A Labrador from Sleaford has won a space on a national dog panel to take part in a 10-day dog food taste challenge for a well known dog food brand.

One-year-old Buddy is one of 100 dogs from across the UK to be selected for the exclusive food Taste Challenge hosted by Butcher’s Pet Care.

Buddy will tuck into the challenge starting on October 6 when owners will be provided with a 10 day supply of meals from Butcher’s, made with real meat, no artificial flavourings and natural ingredients.

They will then be asked to share online how their 
dog reacts to tasting the dinners.

Owner, Michelle Murphy said: “When I saw this opportunity, I thought it would be great to register Buddy and I’m delighted 
we have been chosen to take 
part in the 10-Day Taste Challenge.

“Like most dogs, mealtimes are one of the most anticipated parts of the day and it will be interesting to see how they react to the new meaty meals on offer.”

Clare Scallon, from Butcher’s Pet Care, adds: “We decided to launch a 10-Day Taste Challenge to encourage owners to swap their pet’s meals to see how happy it makes them.

“I’d like to congratulate each dog for winning one of the coveted places.

“We are looking forward to hearing about their experience.

“We are encouraging dog owners to serve Butcher’s for 10-days – we guarantee an empty bowl and a wagging 
tail at the end of each meaty meal.
