Civic associations seeks to build extensive dog-training centre

A civic association has asked the town of Pardubice, east of Prague, to set aside at least two hectares of grounds which could be used to build an extensive dog-training complex, unrivalled in the country and complete with a cat and dog shelter. The association, called Berserk – K9, is aiming for the centre to be used by both breeders and trainers, and to have a hall for to be used for internationally-certified competitions and exhibitions. The grounds would be paid for from both European and association funds. The civic association has stressed that the centre would create job opportunities for people with disabilities and that some 1,000 dog owners could make use of the facility per month. More than 9,000 dogs are registered in Pardubice alone.
