Care Home names ‘Best in Show’ in annual dog competition Scrufts

As part of its annual tradition, The Heights, High Wycombe care home of The Fremantle Trust, welcomed dogs and their owners to partake in a competition of obedience and obstacle courses to become ‘best in show’ at Scrufts.

With multiple categories including most obedient and walk to heel, eight dogs donned their prettiest coats and showed great enthusiasm in taking part in the competition. After revealing the winners of each category, residents took turns to present the rosettes to the winning dogs. A special ‘Best in Show’ trophy was presented to young dog handler, George Winrow and his companion, Biscuit.

Each dog owner was also presented with a bag of goodies from Jollyes – The Pet People in Wycombe.

On delivering rosettes for a winning category, resident Bernadette, commented: “I really enjoyed it. It was nice to see so many lovely dogs.”

Speaking after his win, George, 11 commented: “It was fun and I think everyone enjoyed themselves, especially the dogs.”

Rated ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC, The Heights is a specialist nursing care home whose highly trained and compassionate team provides 24-hour expert nursing care and support for people with a variety of individual care needs, including dementia.

When asked about his win and what he will do with the prize, Biscuit responded: “Woof“.
