Have I got Chihuahua blood in me ?

A strange question I know but the last few days I've felt a little like my Chihuahua Honey, who suddenly goes round and round trying to catch her tail. I feel like I'm on the go all the time, not that I'm complaining.
The light provided by the longer summer days means I can spend more time outside with the dogs, be it training or simply enjoying walks with them.
Added to that, I've decided to enter a number of shows as a stall holder and I'm in the process of getting all my leaflets etc etc designed and printed.
Confirmation will be shown on the homepage of but I expect to be at the following :-

Penrith            -    Saturday 23rd July
Lowther          -    Sat & Sun 13th & 14th August
Brough            -    Thursday 18th August
Appleby          -    Saturday 20th August
Westmorkand  -   Thursday 8th September

If you see me looking hot and flustered, don't be put off - come and have a chat !!


ps.and with Paul back from his jaunt to Barcelona and Spain, I expect some new photographs to be taken very soon !!

Fran Ardley the Gun Dog Trainer

While Rachel is a trainer and partner in Cumbria Dog Training, my other daughter is a professional in gun dog trainer. Fran has been training dogs for owners from all over  the UK, as well as being asked to judge dogs in in the very male world of trialling. Not bad for a young lady still in her 20's ! Paul's six month old Working Cocker Spaniel Ella loves riding in the cars. She has tremendous spring in her skinny legs and gets into the back of the Hilux with little effort. It's a different story when it's time to leave. She's been trained never to jump out but to be patient and wait for her owner to pick her up, thereby preventing injuries ..... and vets bills !! When are we going to be there Dad ? Boarding dogs Charlie and his brother Alfie are staying with me for a few days, and as can be seen, a ball is something that creates a real bond. These two young dogs are lovely characters. Is this the cool way to carry a ball ? Scarlett, a yo
