Dogs Get the Vote

8th May 2012
  • Dogs Rule by By Voting With Their Paws in Dog Biscuit Challenge
  • Voting open in every Metro Bank store throughout May!

Metro Bank’s CCO (Chief Canine Officer) Sir Duffield has today laid down a challenge for his doggie friends, and invited them to cast a vote for their favourite biscuit. The most popular biscuit on the 31st of May will be named as the official Metro Bank Dog Biscuit and win pride of place in Metro Bank stores.

Sir Duffield has already sniffed out the shortlist, giving any canine companion visiting a Metro Bank store three dog biscuits to sample and choose from. Dogs can vote for their favourite in store, or ask their owners for a helping paw to vote online here. Each vote gives lucky pooches the chance to win one of 12 Doggie Goodie baskets, stuffed with treats and toys. Any dog (or of course cat!) that brings their owner along to one of our stores and lets them open a new account will also receive £20 and a free gift.

The winning biscuit will be announced at a special ceremony in June, where the treat maker will be presented with a golden biscuit holder.

Sir Duffield comments, “’I’m wagging my tail with excitement about this contest! I’m asking all of my doggie mates to exercise their democratic right by visiting their local Metro Bank store. It’s time to show these humans that they aren’t the only ones who can vote this May!”

Dogs can vote in store at any of the below Metro Bank locations:

  • Borehamwood
  • Bromley
  • Croydon
  • Earl's Court
  • Fulham Broadway
  • High Wycombe
  • Holborn
  • Hounslow
  • Kensington High Street
  • Tottenham Court Road
  • Uxbridge

Metro Bank is growing rapidly, and plans to double the number of stores to 20 in 2012 by opening 9 new stores across Greater London and the South East of England including:

  • Reading
  • Romford
  • Chiswick
  • The City
