A Siberian Husky, a Golden Retriever, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, a Malinois, a Hungarian Shepherd, a Creole Shepherd, a Brittany Spaniel, a Schipperke, three Manchester Terriers and three crosses rubbed effortlessly, Saturday, April 30, 2022 in a dog area of 1,000 m2, created especially for them, at 3 rue des Petites Filles Dieu, in Chartres.
Yohan Compper, president of the Chartres Education and Canine Sports Association, which was established in 2019 and consisted of forty members, presented a panel of what he offers to enable masters and dogs to live in harmony, in a confined space or in contact with humans and other animals.
It was his members who carried out the demonstrations, while Yohan Compper interpreted the techniques, his staffie Ike wisely sitting at his feet.
Free, under the owner’s eye
At the end of the demonstrations, Sophie Beurel, a city councilor in charge of animals in the city, spoke about this project: “This freedom space had been a request from Chartrains for years. Mayor Jean-Pierre Gorges was in favor because he wants to remain a pioneer before for animal welfare, within the framework of medium-sized cities. ”

This site allows masters to let their dogs run and play with their peers and allow them to socialize. “Under the supervision of their owner,” Sophie Beurel insists.
“I’m negotiating a dog”
The mayor of Chartres, Jean-Pierre Gorges, began his speech with humor: “I have always had animals in my family, back then also when I created my family. Then there were no more animals. Animals. Then a cat moved in. I have not a dog. I could not negotiate. ”
Then he humorously quoted new and used dogs: “An animal a few months old, new, we can raise it, an animal restored, older, it has its habits.” Since leading the city of Chartres in 2001, the elected representative has noticed a very large presence of pets:
“More than 5,000 dogs! And maybe just as many cats. It was therefore necessary to invest in the animal condition, the animal so close to the family.”

The next on Les Perriers
After the many installations of canisites to avoid manure everywhere, the mayor wanted to continue the transformations of the public space: “We should first train the teachers. And the association of Yohan Compper plays a very important role.” He adds: “This dog place will also allow a better coexistence between the residents of a city that we want to be peaceful.”
