There will be a “Celebration of Vulnerable British Heritage Dog Breeds” in the main arena around 4.00pm. Twenty rare British and Irish breeds will be taking part and all handlers will be dressed as historic or literary characters associated with each breed.
In July the closure of the Native Dogs Breed Trust (known to everybody as the Vulnerable Breeds people) was announced. It had been a good idea that didn’t work as a “one thing fits all” policy was attempted. Another new initiative has just been launched; how do Heritage Breeds grab you? Have a look & let them know what you think!
