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.

Rufus is off !
8mth old Hanna is one of my
She has a lovely temperament and as someone who's owned
Rottweilers/Dobermans in the past, I found her to be representative of the
breed. It saddens me that such beautiful dogs can get such bad publicity,
largely due to a few thoughtless owners.
Recently Rufus stayed with me for
two months residential training.
stubbornness showed itself early on when he point blank refused to sit !
over time he respected and obeyed the commands which Rachel and myself were
using and we were both delighted to hand over such a well behaved and calmer
dog to his owner.
Meet Border Collie Alfie, who, along with his brother Charlie, is staying with me for a few days.
Zara and Gerry came into the stable with me earlier today. While the former was inquisitive as to what I was doing, little Gerry didn't have the same confidence to stand up and be nosy .... but given time !
Charlie brush up well. These two youngsters are certainly photogenic.
