Anthea Hosts Repair Room… For Dog Owners

TV legend and My Weekly columnist Anthea Turner  has been doing her bit to counteract our throwaway society.

Together with her dog Soho, Anthea hosted The Naturo Repaw Room, alongside Naturo – a 100% natural pet food brand.

The pop-up dog chew repair room opened its doors in a one-day event on Oxford Street, London. Their mission: to help dog-owners salvage prized possessions ravaged by pesky pups, devilish dogs or misbehaving mutts

Experts work their magic

Naturo arranged for an array of experts – including a cobbler, seamstress and upholsterer – to provide real time repairs and consultations to help pet owners restore much-loved items to their former glory.

Also on hand was canine expert Leon Towers from Channel 4’s Embarrassing Pets. Leon offered bespoke tips and advice to help dog owners put an end to destructive behavioural tendencies.

Every year it’s estimated that our four-legged friends cost the nation £1.7bn in home damage. So Naturo decided to step in to limit what is one of the less glamorous aspects of pet ownership.
