Where do we start? I suppose an explanation of the photograph is as good a place as any. The group’s original intention was to aid in whichever way we could, the safe and phased return of canine activities, following this horrendous pandemic. For authenticity, bearing in mind the origin of it, we went for the slightly oriental expression.
So to give you a bit of background, the whole thing evolved from a “ooh I wonder ..” idea I had whilst walking the dogs -I say walking as it conjures up a far more romantic vision than picking up the proverbial with my little shovel! I made a few phone calls -the first was to Graham Hill -and the idea started to come to fruition! More phone calls -more people on board -albeit originally all were either in Wales or running clubs in Wales. The intention was to write /create policies/procedures which would help with the safe and phased return of canine activities
One question we are often asked -mainly by those the other side of Offa’s Dyke, is “how do we say it?”. Most to date, in fairness have very little trouble with ‘Dragon’s’ the second word is pronounced ‘KEY’ -quite simply Welsh for ‘dog’
So that should answer some basics about our origin.
