Collar a prize for your dog!

Dogs of Blaby NEW 2017

Back for its third year, dog-owning residents of the district are being invited to enter a competition to win a hamper for their pooch. 

Between now and Thursday 13 December, anyone living in Blaby District can take a picture of their dog wearing an illuminated collar, lead or coat out and about on their daily walk. There are three easy ways to enter:

  • Post the photo on the “Blaby District” Facebook page
  • Tweet @BlabyDC with the photo or use the hashtag #DogsOfBlaby
  • Email 

The competition is part of the Council’s drive to ensure dogs that can be seen in the dark, reducing the number of potential incidents of dogs and vehicles, as well as preventing fouling out of owners’ sight.

A winner will be selected at random with the bumper hamper given to the lucky winner and their pet.

Michelle Ikin, Senior Animal Services Officer for Blaby District Council, said: “Every year we see an increase in dog fouling on our streets and parks, mainly due to owners not being able to see their off-lead dog when it’s dark.

“Illuminated dogs are far likelier to be spotted by drivers which will prevent otherwise avoidable accidents. We can’t wait to see the entries, don’t forget to give us the name of your dog!”
