I live in Northamptonshire with my partner, 2 children, 5 dogs and a few too many chickens! I have been passionate about dogs my whole life. My career path includes qualifying as a veterinary nurse and managing a busy boarding, breeding and rehoming kennels. I am a trustee of Wellingborough Dog Welfare and have almost 30 years experience working with and training dogs. I also work supporting adults with a learning disability to increase their confidence and independence which I love. I currently have 5 dogs, 3 border terriers which I bred myself and 2 rescue cross breeds. I have qualified and competed over the years in agility, breed showing, flyball and scent with highlights including competing at Crufts. My favourite things in life are walks in the countryside and on the beach with my family and dogs and relaxing out camping with a cup of tea, some chocolate and good friends!!
