For the last few days we've been enjoying - if I can say that - a fair smattering of snow. But the dogs have loved every minute of it.! Charlie, my little black Patterdale guest dog is coming indoors with a white belly and very white whiskers! But for idiots the prize has got to go to Tilly and Maddie - helped by me! Don't worry, they've not slipped on ice, they really are jumping! I thought I would also post two photos of my daughter's beautiful horse Pan. The first shows his teeth but the second photo is a little more flattering!
I'm Janet Ardley, a professional dog trainer and behaviourist living in the beautiful Lake District National Park here in Cumbria.
I offer residential home boarding, training and help for dogs with behavioural problems.
I'm also very busy training dogs not to chase sheep and livestock.
The purpose of my blog is to give an insight into my working life and hopefully reflect the great fun and happiness I get from working with mans' best friend.
