Puppy paradise: care home residents crazy for Crufts

Residents and staff at Scarborough Hall Care Home in Scarborough are loving the annual return of the world’s largest dog show, Crufts. Residents at the home are all keen animal lovers and are delighted that Crufts is back on our TVs. Our staff and family members visited us every day last week and brought in a different dog. In addition, Star Paws dog agility trainer came in for our own dog show.

Canine fans at Scarborough Hall have been glued to their screens to watch the pups being put through their paces. They have been avidly watching the judging of all the different breeds and waiting to see which dogs have been selected to go through to the next round of judging. But best of all they love the agility competitions where the dogs all seem to have so much fun!

Charlotte Nurse, General Manager at the home, said: “Our residents all love animals, we have lots of visits from different therapy pets which always cause a great deal of excitement. Crufts is absolute heaven for our canine-loving residents here, they absolutely love watching all the different breeds and seeing which one comes out on top!”
