What a great day we had on Sunday, filming at Discover Dogs show in Earls Court, London! Firstly we met and interviewed Caroline Kisko, the Kennel Club's Secretary, who gave us a breakdown of some of the activities happening across the two days. This fed into an interview with Faye Moore of the Young Kennel Club (YKC), who explained about the benefits of joining for children and young adults aged between 6 and 24, and talked to us about the team building days that they organise, including Outward Bound and Go Ape. We hope to bring you these interviews very soon...
Next in front of our camera was Marc Abraham (aka Marc The Vet) who caught up with us in between his very busy schedule of seminars. He talked to us about an issue close to his heart – puppy farming. He has started a high-profile campaign called Pup Aid which has attracted the support of a large number of celebrities. In this article, which we'll bring to you early in the new year, Marc explains how to identify a mass-bred dog, what problems they can come with, and what you can do to help eradicate this terrible practice.
To finish off the day, we interviewed Jo-Ann Essex and Lesley McFayden from the East Anglian Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club, who talked to us about Staffie breed generally, the great work they do with them in agility, and about the National Stafford Weekend. We will bring that article to you in March of next year, in time for the National Stafford Weekend.
We even found time to catch up with Joe Inglis on Joe's Vets Kitchen stand, very good to see him too!
Wow, time to recover now, and of course loads of editing!
