    Lowestoft, Suffolk.

    M/S of a boat in a harbour. Camera pans to show people, each with a dog on lead, walking in circles. M/S of people and dogs circling. Dogs are all different, there is no breed connection between them. Point of view C/U shot of dogs looking towards the camera - fantastic! M/S of a man and his German shepherd. C/U shots of a boxer and Bedlington terrier.

    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.

    People line up their dogs and then make a line themselves. People start calling their dogs and dogs start walking to their masters one by one. M/S of five dogs lying and instructors walking around them. L/S of people and dogs walking towards the camera.
