Paws for Thought

Paws for Thought was set up by Stuart Brace an ex-Police dog handler following the disbanding of the local Police Dog Team and due to the continued requests for Dog Displays in the area. After some years of performing a police style display, Stuart took control of the team and changed its style. Gone were lengthy obedience routines, police style agility and police man work and in came fun agility races, encouraging crowd involvement, tricks and games which children and adults could participate in if they were brave enough. The display changed from formal to very informal, the onus placed on entertaining the whole family. A strong message was also presented that dog owners should be responsible for their pets and fun could be had training a dog, whatever the breed. The teams reputation was growing and they were now being booked by large events. Eventually they were asked to perform at Crufts Dog Show and the team have not looked back. They have performed at such prestigious events such as BBC CountryFile Live, Discover Dogs, Channel 4 Pet Roadshows, Royal Bath and West, Royal Welsh, Royal Three Counties Shows, Paws in the Park, The London Pet Show, The Royal Welsh Spring Festival, Britain's Got Talent and The Alan Titchmarsh Show, CBBC Who Let The Dogs Out and About, Hurlingham Club London, Ascot Race Track Family Day, and now Abergavenny Steam Rally.
