Dogs For The Disabled Celebrates 25th Anniversary At The Kennel Club Building

Dogs for the Disabled celebrated their 25thAnniversary at the Kennel Club Building at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire this summer, the third Summer Celebration event held at the building.

Five hundred visitors attended the 25thAnniversary, including the charity's partners, volunteers, donors, and parents and families who benefit from the charity's work.

A whole host of activities took place at the event including a charity companion dog show and Good Citizen Dog Training Scheme testing. Other highlights included a carting display by the Southern Leonberger Club, a WW2 Dakota flypast and displays of 'Wheelwork to Music' and a showcase from West Midlands Police.

Peter Gorbing, Chief Executive of Dogs for the Disabled said: "The Kennel Club Building is a great location with wonderful indoor and outdoor space which, essentially for our clients, is also very accessible. 

"The team at the Kennel Club gave us great support. It was a day for celebrating old memories and creating new friendships that I'm sure many people will remember for a long time to come."

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: "It was a great way to celebrate 25 years of Dogs for the Disabled and a real tribute to their founder Frances Hay. The Kennel Club Educational Trust was delighted that Dogs for the Disabled had chosen to host their event at the Kennel Club Building for the third year running." 

The Kennel Club Building is the UK's only venue created to suit all canine educational needs from dog shows and training sessions to seminars and meetings. The building is now in its fifth year of operation.
