Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

Tal­ented dogs de­lighted res­i­dents at Ash­ford’s War­ren Lodge Bupa Care Home at their sec­ond an­nual dog show.

Six­teen four-legged su­per­stars per­formed a range of tun­nel tricks and agility cour­ses at the sec­ond event on Thursday, June 9.

Jan D’Arcy, se­nior ac­tiv­i­ties co­or­di­na­tor, said: “Every­body was so fo­cused and did so well.

“It was ab­so­lutely won­der­ful.

“We en­cour­age all lo­cal peo­ple to bring dogs down and run through the cour­ses. But we have some very silly awards, we do not want it to be com­pet­i­tive.

“We had an amaz­ing at­ten­dance and it worked so well for the de­men­tia pa­tients.

“Every­body who came said it was a won­der­ful day and the res­i­dents loved watch­ing the dogs.”
