Mervyn and I are partners in our family packaging business, Merrypak.
I started obedience training with my first dog Honey, a cross Bull Terrier/Staffy in 1985. Since then between Mervyn and I, we have owned and trained 10 GSDS and a cross Pom. I started teaching classes in 1987. I have competed up to obedience Class A with 4 of my dogs including Honey. I use a ball or tug toy when training my dogs and make sure that my dogs think of training as loads of fun.
I enjoy both obedience training and agility and in my spare time, I enjoy running with my dogs. I teach puppy classes and have for many years. I really enjoy helping people and seeing the difference that training can make. Living with a well-trained dog is such a pleasure.
