Team Well Connected Canine were busy this weekend at The North East Dog Festival doing taster Talking Dogs Scentwork sessions. Between us (Clare, Sian and Morag, with Fi manning the stand) we ran an amazing 42 taster sessions.
That’s over 40 new teams who learned to love Scentwork with their dog plus everyone who took leaflets, came to my talks in the education tent or watched our amazing demos in the main ring! All the money we raised will be donated to Jerry Green Dog Rescue (£84).
Terrifyingly, 2018 isn’t that far away and I’m trying to firm up our calendar of events. Scentwork is such a great way to have fun with your dog, and it’s an easy sport to try even at a busy show or event.
Our aim to get out and about more to local events around York and North Yorkshire. The Scentwork sessions are always popular and a great way to raise funds for local charities too.
I’d love to hear your suggestions for events that we can take our Scentwork demos and have-a-go sessions to next year – charity dog events, village shows, anything where there might be a bored dog just begging to be turned into a super sleuth! We only charge a small fee for each session, and it’s all donated back to charity.
Send me your ideas by commenting, or emailing me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great week and try not to get blown away!

PS Clare and I can confidently report that my tent does fit 2 people and 5 dogs into it, in fact I think we could squeeze in another dog if we tried….
