“I run Lakemead Boarding Kennels in Motcombe. This enables me to spend time with dogs of all types as well as my own. I have been a dog owner for twenty years and have always had an interest in them. This was no doubt fuelled by my visits to Bristol Dogs Home when my aunt and uncle were in charge.
This also increased my awareness of the number of dogs in rescue as a result of humans and their canine friends not speaking the same language. I have been helping people train their dogs for several years, both on a one to one basis and in classes.
As many of the dogs had behavioural difficulties I soon realised that you cannot train a dog without trying to understand him.
Understanding your dog, as well as training him can be a most rewarding experience for both of you”.
