My next guest blog comes from Emma Suiter who is a third year vetinary student at the Royal Veterinary College in London discussing the future of pedigree dogs in the veterinary industry as a vet nurse, dog handler and overall dog lover. She has recently been appointed to be a Health Representative for her breed, the Kooikerhondje (yes, I did spell that right) and not to mention the youngest health rep The Kennel Club has ever had – quite an achievement!
As a result I was keen to know her thoughts on the overall health of pedigree dogs as a whole and the tasks we face in future.
Enough of me though, find out what she has to say here.
Oh boy, it’s been one busy month from my end. This year has seemed to start off with a bang and there seems to be no way of slowing down. We are slowly creeping into March and for dog lovers and enthusiasts that only means one thing – Crufts is around the corner!
It wasn’t that long before Crufts 2013 when I decided to start my own blog so it’s a very interesting insight to see how far I’ve come along. For last years Crufts 2013 blog and review click here
However, this year I’m glad to say that this year I’ll be with the YKC team (Young Kennel Club) so it should be a very interesting experience. I’ve always been keen to reach out to the younger generation and I can’t think of a better way to educate and raise awareness among the next generation of dog owners!
Here is a short preview of what to expect:
Finally for those who will be attending, I’ll see you all there!
As many of you may know, I’ve been blogging for a while now and the reason I wanted to kick off this section was to give my readers and those who might be interested in joining a KCAI Scheme a taste of what it’s all about.
The great thing about the KCAI is the wide range of options available, so anyone from professional Dog Wardens and business owners to casual dog lovers who would like to develop a skill can take it. When I initially looked at it I wont lie, it looked very intimidating! However, the more I got through the initial stages, the simpler it became. I hope this blog series will shed some light on the matter for those going through the same thing!
