The 12th & 13th of November was Discover Dogs weekend, an annual event organised by the Kennel Club and held at Earls Court Exhibition Centre in London.
For those who have not been to this event, I think it is best described as a ‘Miniature Crufts’ with several Activity Rings and a Main Arena which are busy with presentations, demonstrations and competitions throughout the 2 days.
There were over 150 trade stands and free seminars on a wide range of subjects (I was hoping to get to the one about Law and the Dog but sadly time did not allow). The Scrufts Finals to award top prize to the best Family Crossbreed Dog, Companion Dog Competitions, Breed Rescue Societies and lots more.
Allan and I arrived just before 10:00 and settled in with Fly, decorated the bench and chatted to lots of folk about HTM and Fly’s fabulous performance at the Open European Championships. The size of the cup was a crowd stopper with many folk stopping for a closer look.
Although our performance was not scheduled until 16:05 the time flew by and it was soon time to get into costume and warm up with Fly. We were given a fabulous introduction and entered the ring waving to the crowd. Fly gave a brilliant performance, full of energy and enthusiasm and we really enjoyed ourselves.
Thank you to the Kennel Club of Great Britain for inviting us to perform our winning routine at Discover Dogs, we had a great day out!
