The campaign has been a huge success, with more than 40,000 Take the Lead signs being sent out to farmers, councils and unions across the country since its launch earlier this year.

It has also garnered huge wider media attention, with features on BBC Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine show, scores of coverage in the local press and a three page spread in Dogs Monthly.
