    The Siberian Husky Welfare Association was founded in 2007 to rescue and rehome unwanted huskies throughout the UK.  We also offer advice, support and counselling for husky owners who are having difficulties with their dogs, so that they can be helped to keep their dogs rather than giving them up for adoption.

    Chase the Bunny

    If your dog loves to chase this could be their moment!  Dogs are matched to general size and speed and race to chase the lure around the arena.  Great fun to both take part in and to watch – especially when the dogs run in completely the opposite direction, or find a more interesting smell.
