We invited a group of hardworking Pets As Therapy dogs and their volunteer owners to join us for a great day out in Blackpool. We welcomed the dogs on board a Northern train at Preston and made sure they got best-in-show treatment.
We used a horsebox lorry to create the perfect weather-proof compact studio, complete with a dog-friendly ramp and its own generator. And we created a cosy marquee beneath the Blackpool Tower where dogs and their humans could enjoy hot drinks and plenty of treats all day.
More than 30 visitors to Blackpool were treated to a free individual portrait shoot of their canine pal
Winds of more than 30mph didn’t cause us any issues
We gave out more than 200 hot drinks and goody bags creating positive awareness for Northern in a key location
