BU Channel celebrates national ‘Love Your Pet Day’

In Dover, Dunkerque and Calais, the teams celebrated ‘Love Your Pet Day’ with our customers in the ports, rewarding 20 furry-guest lovers with a fabulous pet gift box, filled with pet essentials.

February 20 is national ‘Love Your Pet Day’ in the UK and it’s a great day to show your love for our little furry friends. Whether you’re a cat or dog lover, or you’ve got a family of chimpanzees sharing your home with you, this is the day to spoil them even more than you normally do, and show them how much they mean to your family.

In Dover, Dunkerque and Calais, the teams celebrated this special day with our customers in the ports, rewarding 20 furry-guest lovers with a fabulous pet gift box, filled with pet essentials.

Steve Garner, Customer Experience Manager at BU Channel, says: “It was so exciting sharing this national day, where we surprised and delighted our customers with their super pet gift boxes.”

“On our Dover – France routes we carry around 86,000 dogs a year. This generates a very respectable revenue for our routes as we have many guests who love to take their furry family member on their annual holiday or to visit family in other countries. In BU Channel, we have implemented a number of pet initiatives over the last year to enhance the customer experience for passengers travelling with their furry family members, ranging from our dedicated DFDS Pet Pals who are first-aid trained to support in the times of need, to a new pet exercise area in Dover.”
