AN ILKLEY-BASED cycling wear brand is seeking an 'office dog'.

Fat Lad at the Back would like to hear from local owners who currently have to leave their pet at home while they go to work.

The business wants to share its Nelson Road base with a dog during office hours - which it says will be 'K9 to 5'.

Co-founder Lynn Bye also says the chosen pooch and will be well-fed, pampered and given regular walks.

Lynn, who lost her own dog - French Briard Betsy - last year, said: "We're looking for a well-trained doggy with a calm disposition, who is sociable and well presented.

"All the Fat Lad team are dog lovers so it would be great to have a full time doggy in the office, we’ll take really great care of him and her."

Anyone who thinks their dog has what it takes is being urged not to 'paws' for thought as the firm is having open auditions over the coming weeks – for dates and more details visit or send an e-mail .
