On 25th June we had a fabulous day demonstrating the work at Grande Daze Companion Centre. We started the day with Agility and Hoopers followed by Carole with her Gun Dogs, Piper, Harry and Dollar, showing off their skills. You can see the slide-shows at the bottom of this article, “The Action”, “The Gun Dogs” and “The Portraits”.
The dogs participating in the event posed for pictures and Peter judged them.
The demonstration finished with much excitement and cheering for the Relay Race when all of the eager participants in their teams threw themselves enthusiastically into dashing to the finish line. The support of the crowd and their encouragement was overwhelming – a big thank you to everyone.
The winner overall was Roxanne with Marie who has trained her dogs with Grande Daze for many years. Hot on the heels of Marie and Roxanne were Gary and Lola. Gary and his wife Wendy have adopted dogs from Grande Daze and helped us train the rescue dogs. They all enjoyed the day, especially with Lola who is a French bred German Shepherd Dog and at the age of seven and half proved that you can teach an old dog new tricks.
Nick Catling, a professional photographer, kindly took the beautiful photographs we have of the event. We have helped Nick and his wife, Tracy, to educate their dog. Thank you Nick, your contribution to our event is much appreciated.
A good day of fun was had by all!
