    Fish merchant, Mr John Dawson, has introduced a new activity - weekly instructional class for dogs. He got the idea after reading how many accidents on the road are caused by untrained dogs. He initiated creation of Lowestoft Dog Training Society, which proved beneficial for both, dogs and owners. Society also raises money for the National Institute for the Blind. There are no social distinctions at this school and different breeds mix on equal terms - pedigree or not.
