8mth old Hanna is one of my training clients. She has a lovely temperament and as someone who's owned Rottweilers/Dobermans in the past, I found her to be representative of the breed. It saddens me that such beautiful dogs can get such bad publicity, largely due to a few thoughtless owners. Hanna Recently Rufus stayed with me for two months residential training. His stubbornness showed itself early on when he point blank refused to sit ! But over time he respected and obeyed the commands which Rachel and myself were using and we were both delighted to hand over such a well behaved and calmer dog to his owner. Rufus Meet Border Collie Alfie, who, along with his brother Charlie, is staying with me for a few days. Alfie Zara and Gerry came into the stable with me earlier today. While the former was inquisitive as to what I was doing, little Gerry didn't have the same confidence to stand up and be nosy .... but given time ! Zara Char
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.
