PiCKUP! launches the Ninja Dog Championships today!

March 5, 2015Sew White

Our nation certainly is a place for pet lovers. Dogs are most definitely a man’s best friend where as cats, as much as I love them, are independent lodgers who occasionally want a cuddle.

A survey conduced of 1000 adults aged 16-64 gave some brilliant results with dogs of course winning in all categories.

  • 70% of British adults, and 76% of Scottish adults, would trust a fictional dog over a current political leader
  • Of the ‘most trustworthy’ candidates, 35% chose Lassie, 35% chose Gromit, 14% chose David Cameron, 7% chose Ed Miliband, 6% chose Nigel Farage and 3% chose Nick Clegg
  • 73% of dog owners believe their dogs do have ‘special skills’
  • 66% of Londoners think their dog is more intuitive than their partner

*Survey conducted via the TNS CAWI Omnibus “OnLineBus”. Data was collected online from 1,000 GB adults aged 16-64

To celebrate the respect we have for our dog shaped friends PiCKUP! (the gorgeous chocolate bar biscuit snack) launches the Ninja Dog Championships today. Yes you read that right Ninja Dog Championships.

As Crufts opens its gates, biscuit brand PiCKUP! launches an alternative – the Ninja Dog championships for the common dog. PiCKUP! biscuits contain a deliciously thick chocolate slab sandwiched between two crisp biscuits. The chocolate is so sacred that it’s protected by an unforgettably fearsome Ninja Chihuahua (I wish I had a Ninja Chihuahua defending my chocolates). Elusive by nature, the stealthy PiCK UP! biscuit guardian ensures the sanctity of the chocolate is maintained.

You might have seen the PiCKUP! Ninja Chihuahua on tv in adverts but now he is on the hunt for other Ninja skilled dogs. Do you have a fierce pooch who can pack a few awesome moves? If the answer is yes or no you need to read and watch on!

To celebrate the launch of the new Black’N’White flavour of biscuit, PiCKUP! is on the hunt to find the UK’s most Ninja Dog. Five dogs have already been discovered – but could you be the sixth? Consumer entries are now open for members of the public to upload their own videos of their ninja dogs to PiCKUP’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/PickupUK. If your dog is chosen as a finalist you get £100 and you could win a £500 cash prize if your ninja dog wins! Visit the website for more information. www.pickupbiscuits.co.uk

Jake can really pack a punch!

Beau is already very quick at rolling into his cape. Plus superheros should be able to skate board!

Holly is adorable and I think could be a brilliant Ninja. Looking so cute no one would suspect her as a ninja.


 Good luck! I am so tempted to borrow my Aunt’s westie and train him to be a ninja!

This is a competition sponsored post by a company I approve of. All opinions are my own.

    I would trust Gromit any day over Ed Milliband. I don’t have a dog so I can’t imagine what a Ninja dog can do, unless it can turn into Kung Fu Panda?

      I would want a dog if it could turn into King Fu Panda!
