Business is still as hectic as ever, with boarding, residential training and home visits still in full flow - not to mention the sheep chasing. After three weeks of residential training, I said "goodbye" to my little Sprocker guest Reggie, who was collected by his lovely owners. I'd really bonded with this little character and knowing his background pulled on my heart strings as well. I was very pleased to see how much progress had been achieved in just 3 weeks, given how he arrived. And yes I did have a few tears when it came to saying "goodbye". But in my sadness there was a bright light as I also knew that he was returning to owners who, like me, wanted the very best for this young dog. I am able to do all this training because I am very lucky to have a great husband,...... Paul. He is now helping me to run my business by doing alot of the walking of my boarding guests, so all my guests are very well cared for with all their individual needs. 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.
