This year we unveiled our first Dandie Dinmont heritage trail at Kirk Yetholm on Sunday 4th of June. We had the pleasure of Lady Grossart unveiling the Lectern board. 

We are crowd funding this project and the original target was 1 which will cost £1400 however we have reached £4500 means that we can install another 3 that have played a part in the Dandie history. The next location will be at Oxnam Kirk where James Davidson is buried.

Hopefully the Dandie Dinmont Heritage trail will promote an interest in Dandies and show case the beautiful Scottish Borders and North Northumberland. Through strategic placed boards throughout Scottish Borders and Northumberland and help to promote tourism.

Saturday 3rd of June we had our annual Dandie Derby, we had 71 Dandies entered for the race and about another 10 non racing Dandies.

Dandie Dinmont terriers are a rare breed if dogs from the Scottish Borders on average less than 100 are born in the UK every year.
