A Suffolk-based dog care business was among the winners at the 2015 National Pet Industry Federation Awards.

Suffolk Canine Creche, from Martlesham, was named Pet Service Business of the Year at the event, held at the Crown Plaza hotel in Liverpool.

Besides its “creche” day care service, the business offers overnight “hotel” accommodation, “Dog-Cademy” training classes and a new grooming facility, “Fluff the Ruff”.

Candace Rose, owner of Suffolk Canine Crene, said of the award: “It is a fantastic accolade to be recognised by the industry and to be able to spearhead change.

“My team are committed to customer service and I am so proud of them; it is a fitting recognition for their hard work and a wonderful end to this year. We will all be celebrating our achievements at the employee Christmas event.”
