Dog Shows Banned from Village Fetes
It’s that time of the year again, when we spend each Saturday at the local village fetes.
I must say though I’m getting pretty sick of taking my young children along to local village fetes only to come face to face with barking, snarling, snapping dogs in the local dog shows.
They tend to group together in and around the dog show arena which in my opinion can only encourage pack mentality, they don’t exactly smell too good and the mess they make wouldn’t be allowed anywhere else.
Most of the dogs aren’t show dogs, they are just pets which probably only get a brushing once a year especially for the shows, the owners aren’t dog handlers, they are just pet owners.
Is it really safe to bring all these dogs together like this in amongst all the hustle and bustle of the village fete?
Is it safe to group these dogs together like pack dogs when there are children running around playing?
Is it just a matter of time before a small child is bitten by a dog at a village fete dog show?
Is it time dog shows were banned from village fetes?
