They don’t need to be placed but need to be graded at least “very good”. They also have to have been health checked, hips and elbows. Finding somewhere where you can learn the skills required is a challenge. Our nearest training is a 200 mile round trip away.
Crikey that's a trek! And I thought it was bad having to travel about 30 miles for a round trip to ring craft!
