House of Hugo dog hotelier Leon Towers is launching a nationwide hunt for Britain’s fattest dog.

Leon is using his vast knowledge as a canine nutritionist to assist four dogs alongside their owners in a new TV series. It is said that dogs are able to lose weight faster than humans over a shorter period of time and with that in mind the show promises to help the dogs lose three quarters of their body fat in eight weeks through exercise and a healthy diet. The show will be aired in 2017. If you think your dog could use Leon’s help please contact

Leon recently told us the story behind launching his canine care centre. Read the interview here.
