Kennel Club Good Citizens'
Scheme Display at Crufts 2003
' The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme is the largest dog training scheme in the UK. Its aim is to promote responsible dog ownership and in turn, enhance our relationship with our pets and to make the community aware of the benefits associated with dog ownership.' (from the Kennel Club website).
In March 2003, Glandore was asked to provide a display team of dogs for Crufts. Four dogs and their handlers represented the Bronze Good Citizens' Award, putting on three displays for the public. This was the first time that Glandore had been asked to provide a display team, and they may have been the first team from Northern Ireland.
Those taking part were Robin Bates (Team Captain), John Bates and Airedale Poppy, Rachel Cooper and Tibetan Terrier, Yeshe, Shana Lunn and Springer Ginty and Sandra Haveron and Golden Retriever, Rolo.
