With Mr Bridges is National's Rimutaka candidate, Jonathan Fletcher, from Upper Hutt. Photo: KAROLINE TUCKEY By KAROLINE TUCKEY Care for our four-legged friends was the agenda for a National politician paying a whistlestop visit to Upper Hutt on Monday last week. National MP Simon Bridges visited the Upper Hutt Dog School along with Rimutaka National candidate Jonathan Fletcher to see trainers working with a canine class, and to talk about his passion for promoting protection of animals. In February last year Mr Bridges' Animal Welfare Amend- ment Bill was adopted as a Gov- ernment bill and passed into law in July, doubling the maximum penalties for ill-treatment of animals. The visit to the dog school was to meet people doing good work toward healthy relationships between well-trained dogs and responsible owners, he said. It's fantastic to come and see professional dog training being done in the community like this. I'm sure it makes a very signifi- cant difference in lowering dog attacks in the Rimutaka [elector- ate].'' Mr Bridges also made an appearance on many television screens around the country on Sunday, May 29, as a guest on TV One show Make The Politicians Work, where he was put to work mucking out for the SPCA. I already respected what SPCA workers did, but this took my respect and education to a whole new level. It's physically challeng- ing, it's dirty and also requires a lot of skill. A lot of the dogs they are dealing with have infectious skin problems, and some can be pretty dangerous, so it's amazing what they do.'' Mr Bridges owns two dogs, Bruce the pomeranian and Tilly the tibetan spaniel, and enjoyed watching members of the dog club demonstrate obedience training and even a few canine tricks.
