A PetNet-led campaign celebrating the work undertaken by dogs will launch in September.

Titled ‘Celebrating Empawees’, the campaign is a chance for all exceptional dogs from police dogs to assistance dogs, to receive recognition from the PetNet community and beyond.

Lee Greatbatch, who represented Team GB at the Paralympics in Beijing, said: “The constant presence of my guide dog Darby has helped me reach the point in my sporting career where I am able to represent my country and show myself for my abilities and not my disability. The work of assistance dogs is hugely appreciated by their owners but I am delighted that PetNet’s campaign will help publicise the fabulous work of these amazing animals to a wider audience.”

Celebrating Empawees will be showcased on, with the first 30 dogs to feature in the campaign receiving a goody bag from Royal Canin.

To nominate a dog, email with the dog’s name, owner’s details and an overview of the dog’s role.
