The amazing story of Cupar the rescue dog…


By Colin Spalding of Suco Sled Dogs

Cupar, the German Short Haired Pointer was re-homed with us 7 years ago at the age of 5

He was in a racing kennel with approx 20 other dogs, the majority of them were huskies. He was kept outside all year round and had never been inside the house and at first he struggled being in the house with us, but he settled in after a few weeks. He had been training and racing in his previous home and we got him on the Sunday and raced him in a bikejor race the following week and we won our first race together.


Cupar shows how it’s done

We had 5 huskies, all young dogs when Cupar came to us and through training with him the teams improved their commands, turns and focus and now runs past deer, people and dogs, off-lead with no issues.


Love him to bits

It is down to working with Cupar that our teams have had and continue to have success on the racing circuit. He has also helped trained countless other peoples dogs, as well. If people are having issues with their dogs running or commands etc. we bring them along and run them with Cupar. He shows them how it should be done. They follow him and a few runs later, the issues are usually rectified. We’re currently running him with 2 other dogs – one a young rescue. to get them on the right track. He has taught me so much.


“We have used CSJ CP30 and Hike On since 2014 – the dogs love the food and always empty their bowls at every feed.   The dogs train and race hard and CSJ provides them with the energy goodness and stamina to achieve top level results season after season”
