Pet owners took their prized pooches, fantastic felines – and even a cockerel – along to an Ilkeston photo studio at the weekend in the hope of being crowned Pet Of The Year.

The ‘Tiser’s competition at Chambers Pet Store launched on Saturday and we have been overwhelmed with the number of entries so far.

Here are a just a few of the creatures, great and small, who were photographed at John Booth Photography above the Bath Street store.

But don’t fear – if you missed out, there are still two more chances to enter the competition this Saturday (April 20) and Saturday April 27.

Any pet is allowed to be entered — from a dog to a hamster.

All you have to do is take your animal along to the FREE photo sessions between 10am and 3pm on each occasion.

Once all the snaps have been taken, the winners will be decided by you.

The pictures will appear in the ‘Tiser and will also go on show in the store ahead of a vote.

Fantastic prizes, which will be revealed in due course, will be on offer for the top three and the photos will also be available to buy.

Tiser editor Martin Hutton said: “This is a great chance to put your pets in the spotlight. Make sure you don’t miss out and get along to one of the photo sessions.”

Follow the pages of the ‘Tiser for more details in coming weeks, call in at Chambers or ring the shop on 0115 932 8646.
