The TDN Cadets were out in force at Crufts 2020, promoting the charity and fund raising across the 4 days.

TDN Cadets


We were thrilled so many could join us and, without exception, their knowledge and enthusiasm shone through.  The Cadet scheme is open to juniors aged between 7 and 17 to enable them to accompany family members on their visits.  The Cadets work towards by logging their achievements, this could be fund raising, community talks and education sessions.  9 Cadets gained their Bronze award at Crufts this year and some are already on their way to gaining their Silver.  Well done guys!  Our awardees are: Lexi, Alfie, Faye, Kenzie, Ewan, Jordan, Harvey, Katie and Taylor.


Our Cadet scheme is run by Claire Stephens(BSc Hons BVetMed MRCVS) who herself was a former junior member of Pets As Therapy.  Claire said “it was great to see so many of the Cadets positively promoting TDN and chatting to the public.  The Cadets are the future of our charity and I am very proud of them all.”


We had a tombola (dog themed of course) which was run exclusively by the Cadets, over the weekend they raised nearly £500.

Currently we have 21 Cadets registered with us.  For more information, please visit the Cadet page.
