Responsible dog ownership
Our Companion dog show, a must for all dog lovers, took place at the Town Mead Park in Waltham Abbey on Sunday 5 June 2016. It raised an amazing £1,572 for the German Shepherd Rescue (West Essex) charity as well as promoting responsible dog ownership.
On the day there were 18 novelty classes, 8 pedigree and 5 obedience classes to compete in, as well as German Shepard dog rallies.
Bruce the Skye terrier took home best in show with Cindy the Pembroke Corgi taking home best veteran.
Helping with the judging were Chairman of Epping Forest District Council Councillor Jeane Lea and Waltham Abbey Mayor Councillor Helen Kane.
Chairman Jeane Lea said: “Our dog show is brilliant at bringing the community together and shows the strong bonds families have with their pets. Today was a lovely day and it was obvious to me just how much we love our animals – take a look at all the great pictures.”
Get your dog chipped
She continued: ‘It is important to look after your dog responsibly. From April it has been a legal requirement to microchip your dog and you could be fined up to £500 if your dog isn’t chipped by the time they’re 8 months old. Something as simple as a microchip could reunite you with your pooch if they were to get lost. Don’t delay, microchip your dog today!’
