A teenager with a passion for man’s best friend has become the youngest member of a major championship dog show committee.

Young Kennel Club (YKC) member Charlotte Page, 19, is the newest and youngest member of the committee of the East of England Championship Dog Show.

Charlotte, from Pymoor, has been a member of the YKC for 10 years and has already made a name for herself in the dog world.

She won the UK Junior Handler of the Year competition in 2010 and represented the UK in the International Junior Handling Final at the world’s biggest dog show, Crufts, in 2011.

Charlotte said: “It was fantastic to be offered a place on the committee and it will be a fantastic experience to be involved with a society with such a great reputation.

“I am really looking forward to learning about how societies are managed and hopefully putting some new ideas across.”
