Show organisers, judges and all our contributors continue to appreciate our efforts in getting show news and stories to you promptly. Here is just a small sample of some of the plaudits we have received: -
"I feel very strongly that I owe a big WELL DONE to OUR DOGS! I judged an open show on Sunday, e-mailed my report on Tuesday; I could hardly believe my eyes when I say my report, printed in full exactly as I had written it, in the show supplement on the Friday."
"I have not always approved of some of the experiments in format that have taken place, but now feel very much that the paper is back on track and is without a doubt No. 1 for show reports - Congratulations!"
"Thank you for your excellent service always through your papers."
"I would like to say how impressed I am with your news reporting service. I judged at a show on Sunday and as always wrote my critique while the dogs were fresh in my mind. The report was e-mailed on Monday and I was amazed to see it appear in the following edition on Friday. Congratulations OUR DOGS give yourselves a pat on the back for such a prompt and efficient service"
"I would like to thank you and your staff for the excellent coverage you gave our Championship Show this year. Thank you also for the many photographs printed"
In addition to the unrivalled show coverage given in our unique OD2 pull out, the paper has superb photo coverage of shows and news, top quality breed and trade features, exciting competitions supported by the country's leading dog food companies and manufacturers, and now THE most comprehensive web site of its kind in the world.
We have also developed our coverage of events above and beyond the world of show dogs and through our popular Off the Lead column recognise the many activities you can enjoy with your dog.
We feel sure that you, as a reader, will also have recognised the massive improvements we have made to the paper in recent years and you have our assurance that not only will these be maintained but we will continue to expand coverage wherever possible to keep OUR DOGS ahead of all competitors. Naturally increased coverage means larger issues which results in higher printing costs and it is for this reason alone that as from next weeks issue of 5th September we are increasing the cover price to £1.80. We also feel sure that you will consider this a small price to pay for a better, more up to date paper.
Of course the best value way of getting OUR DOGS each week is on subscription. Until 30th September we are holding the rate for a 12 months subscription at only £90.00, including the Annual. From 1st October onwards the price will increase to £95.00 so why not take out a new subscription now, or extend an existing one, and avoid the price rise. Orders can be placed by post, via our website or why not visit the OUR DOGS stand at a forthcoming championship show such as Richmond, Darlington, Belfast etc. where you could also qualify for a host of free gifts!
