The blog has been a bit quiet and I don't know why as alot has been going on! Lewis arrived a week ago for a month of training with me, he is a lovely Collie who just needs to be taught some manners and also needs to learn that the post does NOT need help coming through the letter box! Another new arrival is staying for just 1 week of training, I call it having a tidy up.... her owner has done the training with me and while he is away I am putting in the finishing touches. She is a lovely little black lab called Jussi and she is having a lovely time making new friends. Prospetive clients have been visiting me and my guest dogs in the view of boarding their dogs with me here. This is great as I can put their minds at rest that their pet is going to be very well looked after with me, they leave feeling very happy that while they are away on holiday there dog will be having a good time too.
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.
