I'm Janet Ardley, a professional dog trainer and behaviourist living in the beautiful Lake District here in Cumbria.
I offer residential home boarding, training and help for dogs with behavioural problems.
I also train dogs not to chase sheep and livestock.
This blog aims to give an insight into my working life and hopefully reflect the great fun and happiness I get from working with mans' best friend.

The terrible twins
Nine month old sisters Ziggy and Evie know all the best hiding spots. These two Working Cocker Spaniels are full of energy and keen to enjoy life at a pace. But by the end of the day they're starting to slow down ..... thank goodness !
Terrible twins Ziggy and Evie
Butter wouldn't melt in the mouth of this beautiful little dog - would it ??
Now that's why I've had different coloured socks on today. Thanks Ziggy !
Bridie arrived from Amsterdam for residential training several weeks ago and her behaviour has really improved.We now have a little Patterdale who can enjoy the Fells as much as we do ..... without disappearing into the distance !
Bridie enjoys freedom on the Fells
Caught and guilty as charged !
Sumo a true look of guilt as he's spotted going up the stairs - then reminded that's not what to do.
It's a fair cop guv.
Driving locally a few weeks ago, I was taken by this beautiful sunset .... and the solitary sheep grazing on the horizon.
