Look­ing for the puppy or kit­ten of the year

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

PETBARN is call­ing for Coast res­i­dents to nom­i­nate their four-legged friend to be Aus­tralia’s first Puppy or Kit­ten of the Year.

In the search for the coun­try’s most adorable fur-ba­bies, Petbarn is aim­ing to help pet par­ents cel­e­brate the achieve­ment of rais­ing healthy puppy and kit­ten fam­ily mem­bers.

Aus­tralia has one of the high­est rates of pet own­er­ship in the world with 5.7 mil­lion of Aus­tralia’s 9.2 mil­lion house­holds home to a pet. It’s clear that Aus­tralians are avid pet lovers, but own­ing a puppy or kit­ten is not just about hav­ing a pet.

It means in­tro­duc­ing a new mem­ber to the fam­ily, teach­ing them the house­hold rules and keep­ing them safe and healthy.

Petbarn Kawana Wa­ters store man­ager Peter Auld knows how much lo­cal res­i­dents love their pets and says his ex­pert team can help give young pup­pies and kit­tens the best start in life.

“Rais­ing a young pet is not al­ways easy, but the ben­e­fit of spend­ing time train­ing and pro­vid­ing the care they need dur­ing the first 18 months will be a well-be­haved cat or dog for years to come,” he said.

Puppy and kit­ten own­ers can nom­i­nate their pet to be the Puppy or Kit­ten of the Year un­til Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 15, and also vote for their favourite en­try.

By en­ter­ing an adorable photo of your puppy or kit­ten at the Petbarn Face­book page, lo­cals and their pets will be in the run­ning to win the grand prize, a $1000 Petbarn voucher.

One puppy and one kit­ten will be crowned as the win­ners if they re­ceive the high­est num­ber of votes across Aus­tralia. In ad­di­tion Petbarn will choose two more ma­jor prize win­ners and there will be run­ners-up in each state and ter­ri­tory.
