OVERRIDE

Pen Farthing

A passion for the outdoors and a love of doing everything the hard way found an 18 year old PEN FARTHING visiting a Royal Marine careers office asking to take on the toughest infantry training in the world. 30 weeks later and Pen had earned the coveted Green Beret of the Commandos. His military career, which has included tours of Iraq and Afghanistan, lasted over twenty years. Since publication of One Dog at a Time, Pen has left the Marines to run his charity Nowzad Dogs and - when time allows - an outdoor adventure company. Pen walks his Afghan / Iraqi pack (Nowzad, Tali, Patchdog and Maxchat) in two shifts and has won The Dogs Trust Dog's Best Friend Award and the IFAW Pets and People Award. Nowzad and Tali were nominated for the Crufts Friends for Life Award.
