What are your favourite characteristics in your dog?

Albert has boundless energy. He is always on the go and loves meeting new friends, canine and human alike. He’s incredibly gregarious, perhaps overly so for Parliamentary sensibilities. 

What makes your dog such a great animal?

Albert is a very loyal dog; he requires no party whipping. He’s always pleased to see you and has an infectious enthusiasm for pretty much everything.

What dog welfare issues do you think need tackling?

I would like to see the issue of animal cruelty sentences addressed. We need to make sure that those who commit these horrendous crimes face a sentence to match.

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

My top training tip is to make sure your dog is well-exercised – bored, frustrated dogs have far more energy and motivation to get into trouble.

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

Albert rightly feels he has yet to receive the national recognition he deserves for his world-leading stick and tennis ball work. This title would address that.
