There have been dogs and cats in my life since I was a child. I grew up with Labradors and Westies.
I recently completed a course in Dog Instructor training with the Cambridge Institute of Behaviour and Dog Training. I'm continuing to study towards Diploma level in Dog Training Instruction.
I look after litters of French Bulldog puppies for a local breeder when she is busy. IT involves quite a lot of overnight vigilance but, the puppies are so delightful it's really not a hardship.
We live in a corner of Cornwall, close to beaches, moors and woodlands. The house itself is surrounded by woodlands and fields and we are far from traffic. The house has plenty of garden space and is itself contained within the larger gardens of a Georgian Manor House approached by a small farm lane.
I do have my own dog. he is a Portuguese Water Dog called Vasco. He is a gentle dog and true to his breed with a very soft nature. He loves other dogs and is very happy to share his home. He regularly spends time with other dogs either here or at his sitters house when I am away.
