Three days into our new address and finally the boxes have gone and we’re beginning to feel at home. The only sour note is that our internet connection has gone into cyberspace and beyond - hence this is being written from the village Post Office's "internet cafe". However, on a positive note the first dogs here are wonderful. Poppy, a beautiful orange roan Cocker Spaniel and Harry, a very expressive Italian Spinone have arrived over the last two days. My trio of guests is completed by 18 month old B.B., a fantastic black Cocker Spaniel. She arrived today after I’d been walking Poppy and Harry. We enjoyed one of the many beautiful walks nearby. The autumn colours have arrived in abundance and the seasonal change makes for some interesting smells for the dogs as they explore through the leaves. Tomorrow we’ll be out and about again and I for one am looking forward to it ! Honey has to be there ! Poppy on the left and Harry on the right Run ! Ca
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.
