Meet Wilf, my latest residential training dog. At 18 months of age, this English Setter is a lovely, lively character. However Paul did manage to settle him down just long enough for a few photographs to be taken this afternoon. Eight month old Inca and adult male Deefa are two very impressive German Shepherds who stayed with us recently - but neither could catch Lily when she was in full stride ! Next time you're stuck in the traffic, with your stress reaching dangerous levels, spare a thought for me as I struggle to reach my office without any mod cons. Charlie's first ever fashion shoot ! With Rachel in charge of his wardrobe and Paul looking after the camera, the poor lad doesn't stand a chance !
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.
