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

Winning with your own dog is one thing, but to enter with a Dogs Trust rescue dog just epitomises the work that they do, and hopefully by winning the competition our rescue dog will be even more attractive to a new owner.

What are your favourite characteristics in a dog?

Dogs are loyal and always loving to those who care for them, always there to bring a smile. Their fur is also fantastically soft and cuddly.

What dog welfare issues do you think need tackling?

Electric shock collars have been a menace, so I’m glad the government are in the process of tackling it. So often we see dogs over fed or under exercised. It is really important that people know how to keep their pets healthy and happy.

How can dog owner minimise stress to their dogs during fireworks displays?

Try and isolate your dog from the loud noises but also make sure that they know where you are.

Why should you and your Dogs Trust rescue dog win Westminster Dog of the Year 2018?

I haven’t met my dog yet, but I’m sure he will be fabulous and friendly – a complete joy.
