Throughout April and May we are taking our vintage van “Ted” on tour, stopping outside selected Lincolnshire Co-op food stores throughout our home county, Lincolnshire. Starting from 19th April in Laughing Dog’s home village, Old Leake, the restored van will be making its way around Woodhall Spa, Holbeach and many more local sites.

Lincolnshire Co-op Category Manager Judy Lyon said: “Our trading area is packed full of fantastic producers and we’re proud to support them by stocking their products, from local eggs and cheese to ice cream and beers, in our Love Local range.

“Laughing Dog is stocked in all our food stores as part of the range so our four-legged friends can also enjoy great local food. We hope lots of pooches will ‘pup’ by and visit the van outside our food stores with their owners and try a sample during the tour.”

Using as many of our own ingredients as possible, Laughing Dog’s dry completes, treats and mixer meals are oven-baked on site from start to finish in our family run farm bakery based in Old Leake.

All our four-legged friends are invited to come and visit Ted and our bakers. The team will be on hand to answer questions about our  farm-baked food, giving out free samples at the van for your four-legged friend to take away and try. There will even be feeding stands on hand for dogs to have a nibble. And if you spend £6 or more on Laughing Dog food stocked in your Lincolnshire Co-op food store on the day, you’ll get a free gift from Laughing Dog. We look forward to seeing you there!
