A Note about Disabled Dogs

Kiri is an Irish Setter and she is blind. That hasn’t stopped her gaining her Gold Good Citizen Award or going to Crufts in the KCGC Gold Display Team.

Please don’t write off dogs with a disability. Despite what is sometimes said, blind and deaf dogs can be trained.

Dogs that lose a limb normally do really well on 3 legs. At least one even competes in agility!

So please give them a chance. No dog should be euthanased just because it is disabled. We have experience with disabled dogs – please talk to us if we can help.

Kiri, the Irish setter, is totally blind but it doesn’t stop her doing the things any sighted dog does and a lot more besides. Read the articles here for more stories about Kiri.
