Laois dog shines bright in Pet Personality competition

Archer from Portlaoise

Having pin-pointed six main dog personalities, Petmania have teamed up with Purina Beta to find Real Dogs Ambassadors who embody each different personality. The specialist pet retailer announced the winners at the Pet Expo in Dublin on Sunday 4th November, and one of the winners was from Laois.

This one of a kind initiative focused on bright personalities. The Real Dogs campaign has seen pet parents analyse and understand their dogs’ personalities. The competition is unique as it has emphasised the wonderful personalities’ dogs have, instead of the usual aesthetic and cuteness focused competitions. There were six different categories, the Thrill-seeker, the Jester, the Foodie, the Explorer, the Chaser and the Buddy.

Archer from Portlaoise won the Jester category of the competition. The nine-month-old Chihuahua is an aspiring model and adventurer. He brings smiles, laughter and happiness to everyone he sees and meets. 

Expert dog behaviourist Suzi Walsh applauds the Real Dogs campaign, saying “I think Petmania's Real Dogs competition is a great way of understand your dog more and appreciate that each dog has their own individual personality. It allows dog owners to realise how well they know their best friend.”
