Bauer Media’s Take a Break is to launch a companion magazine aimed at pet lovers this week.

Launch: Take a Break Pets
Liz Watkinson: “Take a Break Pets will tap into the huge popularity of pet ownership across all ages.”

Take a Break Pets is aimed at animal owners and lovers and is created by the team behind the weekly magazine. It’s the second of a number of specials planned in 2019 - Take a Break Makes was published in March.

According to Bauer, the magazine features “amazing true life stories that celebrate all creatures great and small, including… Laura Mason, whose King Charles Spaniel tackled her mugger, Charlotte Brayley, whose sheep Alan helped pay for her big day and Heather Eyley, whose 20 guinea pigs helped put a smile back on her face”.

Elsewhere in the issue, experts are on hand with the latest tips and advice and TAB Pets’ resident vet and trainer answers readers’ questions. Readers can also enjoy a feature on pet-friendly travel, fashion, fiction and fun puzzles as well as a chance to win over £2500 in pet prizes, say the publishers.

Commenting on the launch, Liz Watkinson, Managing Director of Bauer Media’s real-life, TV and puzzles portfolios said: “Take a Break Pets will tap into the huge popularity of pet ownership across all ages. People love their animals and are keen to share their adventures, their stories and all the tips they have picked up through having pets as part of their family. Take a Break has a large and engaged reader community, and pets is another subject that inspires them to join in and share their experiences with each other.”

Take a Break Pets hits newsstands on Thursday 6 June, priced at £1.99 and will remain on sale for eight weeks. Further issues of Take a Break Pets will be published in 2019 if newsstand sales targets are achieved, says Bauer Media.
