Kaia, the husky 
Owners Robyn Moss and Jake Gilmond call loveable Kaia "the Queen of Shiba" because she’s “unbelievably stubborn and runs rings around us all”, they say. ‘Our favourite local walk is by the Weaver in Winsford. It is so peaceful, and the big stretch of field by the river is great for the dogs to have a play on. They love it down there.’

‘Spud and Elvis are two waggy-tailed, mud-loving springers who are not happy unless they are chasing a tennis ball,’ say owners Tracey and Joanna Lowe, who live in Ashton near Haydock Park. ‘Most of the time they are full of mud but they do scrub up well when posing for the camera. They love cuddles and are loved by everyone one who meets them.’

We love to walk through Beeston and Peckforton, stopping for lunch at The Pheasant Inn to take in the stunning views.’

‘My gorgeous springers enjoying spring,’ says owner Sandra Beswick, Middlewich. Bobby, 3, and Finn, 9, are “so different but love being together”, she says. ‘They never go anywhere without one another. Bobby loves his tennis ball but Finn loves to just have a mooch around. We nearly always go to Brereton Heath country park where they can frolick in the mud and have a swim in the mere whilst I feed the ducks.’
