Paul's five month old working Cocker Sumo looks shocked having jumped into a nearby beck . This young lad is a real water babe and one who will no doubt appear in future posts . WOW !! Meanwhile Sumo's brother Cash watches very carefully as Nellie demonstrates the art of the perfect dive on a hot August day . Nellie takes the plunge My beautiful puppies have been collected and I have to admit I was upset at seeing them go, even though I knew they were going to loving homes . One little lad still to be collected is Five Star (nickname) who found some mud one day . He looks very tired in this photo and indeed went straight to sleep once given a bath . Five Star Relief from the puppies comes in the form of training Doodles, a Labradoodle. When she first arrived, this young lady was in a world of her own but those days are long forgotten. Doodles
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.
