What are your favourite characteristics in your dog?

Ted has a real Zest for Life. He finds everything exciting especially the arrival of guests. He is affectionate, energetic and appreciative of food!

 What makes your dog such a great animal?

Ted is loyal affectionate and fun loving. He makes sure we all walk daily and loves being out in the fresh air!

What dog welfare issues do you think need tackling?

Puppy Farming and education about keeping dogs in secure gardens and never leaving them in hot cars.

What role should training and socialisation play in a dog’s life and what is your top training tip?

Training and socialisation makes sure that a dog is safe and can become part of a community. A Top Training treat is to always reward good behaviour and make sure the dog has enough exercise mentally and physically.

Why should your dog be crowned Westminster Dog of the Year 2017?

A Westminster dog has to love the world of politics! Ted is a great fan of General Elections as it gives him the opportunity to meet lots of people and visit new gardens when leafleting or knocking on doors. He loves his role as a key Paw-liamentary Companion.
