I had a fabulous day yesterday at the Coniston Show, held at Coniston Hall. The pitch for my stand could not have been better - on the shores of the lake. Continuous blue skies helped to make it a brilliant setting. I met some lovely people and the thing I enjoyed most of all was showing individuals how to deal with their dogs problems. The look of surprise that I was prepared to do that - there and then - was great. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The one down side of the day ? Camera batteries!! Hence an internet image of Coniston (just pretend it's lovely and sunny !) Janet
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.
