Discover our NEW Puppy Club

We'll be launching our all-new puppy club at Crufts. The club is intended to give new pet parents all the advice and support they need to bring up a happy and healthy dog and is completely free to join. Members will benefit from a range of complimentary goodies including a free 2kg bag of Puppy Original, dog mat, window shield, magazine and enough advice to shake a stick out. Once the dog reaches adulthood he or she will receive an edible birthday card and a free bag of our 7.5kg Original Chicken. 

Have a chat with our nutrition experts

Our Nutrition team, including John Burns himself, will be on hand to answer all your pet nutrition questions. You'll be able to save money with our great show offers, and pick up some free samples. 

Request a free sample of our NEW Grain-Free range

We are delighted to be launching our first grain-free product range at Crufts. The new products are made using Duck and Potato and are available in both adult and puppy varieties. These products contain the same health benefits as other Burns diets, while catering to those seeking a grain-free option for their dog. They are also ideal for sensitive dogs as they are free from gluten, dairy, soya, beet pulp and sweet potato. Request your free sample at Crufts.

Meet our community team and charity partners

Joining us on the Burns stand this year are our charity partners, Forever Hounds Trust and they'll be bringing two canine companions along too. We're providing this charity with financial funding, a year's supply of food and promotional support. 

Meet Forever Hounds Trust - Friday 9th March, 12pm-5pm. 

We'll also be showcasing our Burns in the Community work including our reading dogs programme, Burns By Your Side.
