Solid Foundations

Rural England.. Warwickshire.. Bedfordshire.. the Pytchley

The sounds of the hunt and the church bells.. the horses, the dogs, the countryside.

Of rivers and fields.

Farming, Pony club

Village stores - Spring Fair - Cricket

The ironmongery, The stonemason and the cobblers.


A time of babbling brooks, minnows and newts.. endless summer days.. harvest, birdsong, butterflies and grasshoppers, fruit picking.

Nana trained horses, raised on a chicken farm she bred labradors and we would await her return from Kenya each year from where she would be on safari studying the behaviour of the native African wildlife. An inspirational lady.

My Aunt bred Rhodesian Ridgebacks in Kenya

Dad bred Yorkshire terriers and we grew up with mum, rescuing German shepherds (mum is working - a Master Dog Trainer, Obedience Specialist, Teacher and a judge of the Kennel Clubs Good Citizen Award Scheme since it's beginning) .


Lucky enough to be born into a family where education and training were key, & when apprenticeships taught the skills of a trade.

My kennel-maid duties involved cleaning out the boarding kennels first thing and then catering for the resident Tervuren Shepherds... Foundations to working with dogs started with the hard work, dirt and early hours back then - (not a couple of hours on a computer getting a piece of paper to certify that you can read what someone else discovered, as happens nowadays)


Canine Cognition, - Biology, - Welfare, Behaviour and Training were my passion and formed my academic studies.


My own dogs over the years - Shepherds. - King, Katie, Tara, Bruno, Alfie, - Labradors Mollie, Ben, and then a succession of Springers (and previously a breeder, inc Campbell Almond Brae- Crufts Demonstrator) since the 90's

Socrates (Sox), Bootsie, Cupar and Balfour


To remain up to date, and educated in the industry, I have a vast collection of Higher academic qualifications CANINE COGNITION - plus many papers - diploma and certification which support the wealth of experience and expertise that come with a lifetime of hands-on Training and Behaviour modification.


Passing over invitations for TV and Radio, my speciality remains with my passion for the sporting group breeds that are kept as companion dogs ..the drives, the arousal, the gameness, the steadiness and the intelligence ..

Nothing gives more satisfaction than seeing any dog achieve something that once stood in its way.
