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.
Summer 2019 - sunshine and showers
How wonderful to see a dog express his enjoyment at being in water as much as Bear does. This youngster loved our muddy ditch and ran up and down constantly.
But then came the washing and drying of Bear and the question "why did I allow him to do that ?!"
.............and then there was Murray !
Heidi, a recent residential training youngster, loved to let off steam by jumping through the air for a tuft of grass. This Munsterlander was quite a sight, as her long legs allowed her to get quite a leap.
Mick, enjoying some playtime in the heather !
Bert is famous ..... well, in a way he is. Rachel's lad is on the front cover of a certain 2020 calendar.
