Race night with a difference!

Thank-you to our helpers especially Linda who got the project off the ground by getting the wooden hound cut outs designed and made. Watch out for the next event!

Harness by Dog Games

Sam wearing Perfect Fit Harness by Dog GamesDog Games very kindly donated one of their harnesses to Trailhound Welfare to use on hounds that come in for rehoming. Dog Games Shop sells 2 types of harness, both of which can be seen in the link above, as well as a large range of other dog related items. Sam Trailhound is pictured modelling the harness at High Rigg in the Lake District. The one he is wearing is the Perfect Fit Harness in size 20mm width, MEDIUM TOP & FRONT PIECE and LARGE GIRTH STRAP. Some hounds are better suited to the 40mm width. You can mix and match to get the size that fits your individual hound the best. Thank-you Dog Games for the lovely harness! Click on picture to enlarge. Picture by Caroline Allen
