Discover Dogs at Crufts 2018 – thank you to all our volunteers

March 11, 2018

A huge THANK YOU to the Midland Dachshund Club and Ian Smith, in particular, for organising yet another Discover Dogs for Dachshunds. As always, the booths looked great, with lots of information for owners and potential owners.

The biggest thanks must go to all the volunteers and their superbly behaved dogs. Without them, there would be no Discover Dogs.
