SGA Sniffer Dog ‘Andrex’ Takes Part
In The 50th Championship Dog Show

Coastweek-- Andrex, a sniffer dog entered by SGA, was the only dog which was eligible for the Obedience Class Test C in the Championship Dog Show organised by the Ladies Kennel Association and held at the East Africa Kennel Club Showground.

This year’s Show celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Association and attracted an entry of 235 dogs.  They were divided into five groups featuring 20 different breeds which included Labrador, German Shepherd and Rottweiler.

This nine year old Labrador has twice won the Test A and B of the Obedience Category to qualify for Test C which is the highest recognised class.

Under the command of Johanna Mwaura Njoroge of the SGA Dog Section, Andrex tackled all the seven tests which included sitting for ten minutes without the presence of his handler and scent discrimination. 

The SGA Dog Section provides trained dog teams for searching people, vehicles and buildings to safeguard business premises, festivals, or events.

SGA security dogs are trained in article tracking, building searches, find and locate and handler protection, providing an unbeatable security combination with their handlers.

Johanna and his fellow handlers train with their canine friends on a regular basis, maintaining the highest standards of performance.

The Chief Judge was Mr. Zeferino Silva from Portugal who is a founder member of the Portuguese Spaniel Club.

He has judged national and international shows and breed specialist shows in many countries in Europe, Thailand, USA, China and India.

The East Africa Kennel Club was started in 1922 and stores pedigree information which includes breeding and quality.

Often blood lines can be traced for at least three generations. This includes the ancestors’ show, obedience, or field trial successes as well as genetic information.
