Why have you chosen to enter with a Dogs Trust rescue dog?

To raise awareness of the fantastic dogs looking for forever families to adopt them.

What are your favourite characteristics in a dog?

Loyalty and positivity.

Why are dogs the best companion animals?

There is a breed of dog to suit every home and human. They encourage their humans to get plenty of fresh air and exercise and are loyal family members in no time.

What dog welfare issues do you think need tackling?

Illegal puppy smuggling and greyhound welfare

What role does training and socialisation play in a dog’s life?

Good training and socialisation are key to the health and happiness of both dog and owner.

Why should you and your Dogs Trust rescue dog be crowned Holyrood Dog of the Year 2018?

The Dogs Trust have so many wonderful dogs trying to find their forever homes. My dog is a fantastic example of this and we would use winning to encourage more people to adopt instead of shopping.
