London’s Talented Canines Delight at Dog Factor 2016

Move Over Britain’s Got Talent…Here’s Dog Factor 2016!

On Sunday Finsbury Park North London, played host to Dog Factor 2016 where London’s canines strutted their stuff and showed off their tricks much to the delight of their audience.

From large to small, pedigree to mutt, in our eyes they were all winners. With the ever popular categories such as Best Rescue and Cutest Pup as well as newcomer categories Best Trick, Best Condition and Potluck Class, Simon Cowell would have been pressing the golden buzzer all afternoon at the oodles of canine cuteness and talent on display.

Rescued…Our Favourite Breed

Alongside cuteness and talent there were some very special stories from inspirational rescue dogs who had suffered cruelty or neglect. It was amazing to see them having a second chance with their much loved forever families. And it’s charities such as All Dogs Matter (the organisers of Dog Factor), who play such an important part in making those second chances a reality.

We were really pleased to hear that the Dog Factor 2016 raised £652.34 which will go to help support the great work that All Dogs Matter do and other dogs in need.

Where Are They Now?

It was also a chance to see some of the pups (as they were then) that we’ve met at previous events who’ve since been adopted and who are now much loved and much bigger (little Milo being the exception) in their forever homes. We do so love a happy ending.

This was our first time at Dog Factor and as with all the other All Dog Matter events we weren’t disappointed – lovely people, amazing dogs, heartwarming stories and fabulous fun. Definitely a paws up from us.
