Qualified For Crufts 2019!
Meet our Beautiful Sponsored Dog Laula, who has Qualified for Crufts 2019!
We are super proud to sponsor the beautiful and talented Laula! Her lovely owner and Natuaral Instinct fan, Auriane Favre-Whitmore, shares with us some very exciting news!
Introduction to Laula
Laula is a two-year-old Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever living in Surrey. She adores balls, more specifically her Kong squeaky one as well as her gundog dummy. She is a big fan of cuddles and loves spending her day swimming in the river, sea or lakes! We are super lucky that she gets to come to the office as the Chief Office Dog during the week and so has an endless supply of ball throwers and fuss! She was also honoured to have been printed on the Natural Instinct stand at Crufts 2018, well can you blame them? She’s gorgeous!
We first got into showing by starting ringcraft classes every Monday night as a way to get Laula well socialised with people and fellow dogs. We never had plans to show but then her dad’s breeder encouraged us to enter a local Championship show ‘Richmond’, where she placed in second place in her class. This meant she qualified for Crufts 2017 at the young age of 6 months, which was a total surprise! And so that’s where our show life started. Since then, we have competed at Windsor and WELKS Championships where she’s placed in both second and third place and did Windsor Open show as it was pretty local to us. We also competed at Crufts in 2018 and have qualified for 2019!!
Laula was brought up on a mix of dry and wet dog food and Natural Instinct raw bones to satisfy her chewing needs. Since the beginning of the year, we have gone totally raw with Natural Instinct and have seen many benefits. For starters her coat is softer, and she itches far less than before, her teeth have remained pearly white too! Another bonus is the smaller poos that she does thanks to her raw diet! People are always complimenting on how good she looks and her soft she is – so her diet must be doing her some good!
