Help raise £3,000 towards funding Oliver’s ongoing treatment and chemotherapy
By Positively Canine
We are holding an event to raise money for Olivers ongoing treatment and after care.
Read about Oliver’s Story on his Just Giving page
This is aiming to be a huge sniffathon! maybe even record breaking!
We need to get as many people and dog teams through on the day to sniff out hidden items and clues. It will involve a crime scene, a roadblock, a fugitive on the run, drugs ( not real!) and stolen money.
No previous scentwork experience necessary, providing your dog can sniff out food and is up for some serious sniffing and you are ready for a tired dog then please please come along and support us. There will be someone with you in each search area to help and guide you along so you have nothing to worry about (if you do scentwork please do bring your preferred scent to search for if you would like to).
There will also be goods and refreshments for humans and dogs on sale and tombolas and bottle stall. so even if you don’t want to sniff still come along and support Oliver.
Doors open at 11am, sniffing will start from 1130am and the last dog allowed through to sniff will be at 230pm – your sniffing time should take around 15 to 20 minutes.
We would appreciate a minimum donation of £10 per dog and handler on the day.** if you have a dog that does need space please can you leave them in the car and come in and tell us so we can try and accommodate your dogs needs. If you do not think your dog will cope in a group environment please leave them at home. If we think at any point your dog is getting too stressed we may ask you to pop your dog in your car **

I spoke to you a couple of weeks ago prior to going out to the WSA Sleddog World Championships and you very kindly sent me out two bags of food to try.
In return I’d like to provide honest feedback…
The first was the grain free product, which while this had no adverse effect on my dogs in terms of stools being runny, they did not seem to find very palatable and I struggled to get the non racing dogs to eat it.
However on a positive note my racing dogs really enjoyed the CP30 and as normally fussy eaters ate it with gusto, furthermore while training in the snow prior to competing and competing the dogs performance continuously improved and culminated in our best ever performance on snow.
Making 5th place at the World Championships and the highest placed GB adult at the event. I was extremely surprised at how much this helped improve performance as normally a more raw based diet is my preference but this is not practical for long periods away. Control of nutritional intake is critical for performance and the CP30 really enhanced this.
