Show to raise funds for underdogs

Young dog lovers and students from the Youth Canine Welfare Association conducted a dog show on Sunday to raise money, to provide stray dogs a decent life. 

The dog show, held at the National College Grounds, was witness to nearly 60 dogs of various breeds. Different contests such as Best Obedient Dog, Best Junior and Best Fancy Dress were held. The proceeds will help street dogs. 

Speaking to Deccan Herald, association member Pranav said that the aim is to rescue dogs and rehabilitate them rather than simply using sterilisation as a method. 

The Association also aims to educate the public on dog behaviour. Rescued street dogs will be trained byAmrut Sridhara, a canine behaviourist, in sniffing and tracking. The Association hopes that the training will help make the animals useful for official purposes.

During the contest one pet was costumed as a Hawaiian girl while another was dressed in fancy beads. Many dogs also performed tricks, including shaking hands with the public and balancing on two legs. Winning pets received certificates. Stalls were also set up to sell pet accessories.
