Pooch & Mutt will no longer be at The Ultimate Pet Show on Sunday May 3rd & Monday May 4th.
As an apology to the people hoping to see us please use the promotional code 'ultimate' to get £2 off any orders at poochandmutt.com until Tuesday May 5th.
We did attend the show today. However, due to the poor turnout, it was not viable for a small company such as ourselves to stay on.
We wish all the other exhibitors luck and hope that they have a good day tomorrow and Monday.
The problem with the show was that there were too few people there and the ones that were there seemed disappointed with the high prices of tickets, parking and food and the small size of the show - just half of an NEC hall.
There were some good demonstrations on 2 stages, however both stages were next to each other, with shows on at the same time. Had the stages and shows been spread out more it may have been better.
In my opinion what the show lacked was the fun, interactive element, like the Dock Dogs at last weekend's East Anglia Game Fair, or the Temptation Alley at last year's Wag & Bone Show. This would only have been possible if people were allowed to bring their own pets.
I do hope that the Ultimate Pet Show continues next year and that the lessons learnt this year make for a great, fun show for people to visit.
