Officially Amazing! Petmania Confirmed as Guinness World Record Holders!
25th December 2017
Petmania, Ireland’s favourite chain of pet stores, has been confirmed to be Offically Amazing as they are determined to be the official record holder of the Biggest Cake for Dogs in the World.
In July this year, to mark their 10th Birthday, Petmania, in association with Premium Canine and Leader Dog food, took up the challenge to make the biggest cake for dogs – a record which previously stood at 68.45kg.
The centre-piece to their 10th Birthday Celebrations, the cake was presented at party in their flagship store in Kilkenny, where over 200 dogs (and one cat!) came along to help the pet chain beat the world record. Their final cake weighed in at 91.8kg – smashing the world record and throwing in a PAWlickingly good party in the process.
Marketing Manager for Petmania, Emily Miller says “we knew in July that we had broken the record but we have been waiting for official confirmation from Guinness World Records and it just arrived. We are delighted to be able to add an Official World Record to our list of achievements and it’s a wonderful way to end our 10th birthday year”.
The record breaking cake was baked in Tralee on Friday 28th July by Premium Canine, under the careful watch of the NSAI Legal Metrology department who recorded the official weight of the final cake at 91.8kg.
The cake which was 100% edible by dogs was made from (a lot of!) eggs, carrots, oats, honey, peanut butter and sunflower oil. The top was decorated with edible rice paper and every part of the cake apart from the ribbon and balloons were completely edible.
Petmania currently employs 120 staff across 12 branches nationwide. The chain grew from a pet section in a family run garden centre and is now recognised as a leading expect in Pet Care in Ireland. Speaking at their birthday party in Kilkenny, Emily Miller said “the last ten years have gone so fast, but we have had so much fun getting here and are looking forward to seeing what the next 10 years will bring”.
Since they first opened their doors in 2007, Petmania had groomed over 20,000 dogs; raised over €200,000 for local charities and they can now add beating a Guinness World Record to their list of accomplishments.
