Innovative dog-toy brand, Chuckit!, is bringing National Fetch Day to the UK for the first time on Saturday 19th October, where pets and their humans are being encouraged to celebrate the day and get active in the great outdoors with a game of fetch.
Dedicated to driving responsible pet ownership, National Fetch Day has been founded by Chuckit! internationally and not only marks the 21st anniversary of the hugely popular Chuckit! launcher but is also an occasion that signifies the importance of active play. Both because of the exercise it provides pets and because of the bond that it creates between our four-legged friends and their humans.
For those eager to sniff out the action, Chuckit! gave its loyal fans across the country chances to win toys and bandannas across its social media channels to allow them to get active on Saturday and #MakeFetchHappen. Plus, the brand teamed up with a group of pet influencers at Pingle Pet Store’s K9 Kampus to inspire owners with lots of ways you can add fun to the traditional game of fetch using different apparatus and toys.
From the head-to-head Chuckit! Rope Fetch retrieval games to the Chuckit! Fetch Flight jump challenges, the brand is offering top tips for National Fetch Day activities on its social media channels, which they hope will give pet owners across the country an injection of inspiration, and, with half term on the horizon, it’s family fun for all!
Anna Baker, owner of furry friend Lottie (@littlelottiebaker on Instagram), and who took part in the inspiration session at the K9 campus, commented: “Playing outside with your pet can seem harder as the cold nights start to draw in, but creating memories in the great outdoors through exciting and stimulating play is very special.
“Getting together with other dogs to play is so important for your pet, too, which is what National Fetch Day is all about. Plus, fetch doesn’t have to be boring – there are so many toys to make it fun for you and your dog!”
Will Baggaley, UK Brand Manager for Chuckit!, added: “At Chuckit!, we want playtime be as stimulating for your dog as possible. We are focused on creating more ways to play to keep your dog active, healthy and happy. National Fetch Day is day to celebrate the significance of meaningful play, and, no matter your dog’s breed, shape or size, there’s a toy that will revolutionise your game of fetch.”
