A BROXTON woman is celebrating her beloved pets coming top dog in a national competition.
When Susie Jump entered her Leonbergers – FozzieBear aged two and MojoLion aged three – in Drontal’s nationwide ‘My Pet Superstar’ competition, she didn’t expect that both of them would end up winning people’s hearts.
But the hounds did her proud, and beat 6,000 entrants to win the ‘inspirational’ and ‘entertaining’ categories, receiving the most amount of votes after photographs were posted online.
For book-keeper Susie, who in her spare time trains the dogs at Caren’s K9 College in Dunham-on-the Hill, she is extremely thrilled with her special pets’ achievement.
She said: “I am so proud of my boys, it's just fabulous that they won out of so many entries.
“I do train them a lot. We will soon be showing at Crufts – doing carting, agility, tracking and swimming. They are both registered Pets As Therapy dogs and have been used in advertising and modelling work.
“And both of them are trained to Kennel Club Gold Good Citizens, and are on the blood donation register of the local animal shelter.”
Susie has also set up giant breed carting classes in Sutton Weaver and is planning to hold a fundraiser in aid of Leonberger welfare in August this year.
The summer fete will be held at Farndon Sports and Social club on August 7, and will include we have donkey rides, a live band, a bouncy castle, face painting and have-a-go agility activities.
There will also be a licensed bar, catering and various raffles - all proceeds of which will be donated to the care and welfare of Leonbergers.
