Friday 21st February 2020: Legendary broadcaster Peter Purves is barking back. The iconic voice of Crufts, who last year was deemed too old to continue his commentating role at the prestigious dog show, will be returning to the event with a new role to help us on our mission.
Peter is joining us
TV icon and the legendary voice of Crufts, Peter Purves, will return to the world's most prestigious dog show from 5th March – 8th March but this time he will be joining us! He’s with us to help you keep your pets active for life.
The national treasure, 81, who has had a stellar 60 year career in TV broadcasting that has seen him appear on Dr Who, Blue Peter, Good Morning Britain, and notably perform a 41 year stint as a Crufts commentator and presenter, is now to set to lend his renowned voice and love of pets to us at YuMOVE, and we can’t wait to have him on board!
Peter will be behind-the-scenes again at the world’s greatest dog show, and he will be joining the team on our social media channels for updates throughout the show. Peter will also be a part of our YuMOVE campaign ‘Life in the old dog yet’ encouraging us all as pet owners to think more regularly about how quickly our dogs age and detail the steps to help dogs live their most active life, for life.
Gemma Cunningham, our Campaign Manager at YuMOVE said: “YuMOVE’s mission is to help keep dogs active for life, and in Peter we’ve found the perfect voice to help encourage this movement. We’re delighted that he has joined the team.”
See you at Crufts!
