Thank you to everyone who did their stint in promoting our dogs
"Having read the book 'Crackers Come Hear', it was a very moving story and kept me engrossed, I thoroughly enjoyed it and even now months after I finished it, it still leaves me with memories, and I read a lot and it has to be a very good book for it to stick in my memory slot. I can more than recommend this book for Heeler owners or for the people who find themselves in the same position." Enid Lord
Thank you for including my book Crackers... Come Hear on your website. Enid Lord's testimonial was lovely and I thank her most sincerely for her words as well as for you to post it on your site. I have finished the audio book of Crackers... Come Hear and am most excited to now be able to tell our story to my many blind friends who use Guide Dogs for their assistance. Thank you everyone at LHC for your support over so many years. All the best throughout the coming new year to all. With hugs and smiles, Dennis Robertson

Lancashire Heelers are a native breed of the United Kingdom originating from the County of Lancashire, they were used on farms to herd cattle and sheep, they are the smallest dog in the Pastoral group, this group comprises of dogs who were used since the very early days of mans first close association with dogs
In 1978 a group of Heeler enthusiasts from all parts of the United Kingdom decided to form a group and named it The Lancashire Heeler Club. Then under the guidance of a lady Mrs Gwen Mackintosh the dogs were recognised by the Kennel Club in 1981. Our aim is to help and promote our lovely dogs.
