I never owned dogs in my family as I grew up; it wasn’t until my children were at school that we had our Golden Retriever, Jake. When we moved to a larger property with some land and Jake was six and a half Bramble arrived; my first Pointer. Having done my research it was clear I would need to do some training with her, so we joined obedience classes.
Bramble was only eighteen months old when we sadly lost Jake but it wasn’t long before Binks turned up with The Pointer Rescue Service looking for a new home. He was 7 months old and from Field Trial lines! Not long after Binks arrived we started to foster pointers for the Rescue service. We have now had well over 20 through our care . I found Penny and we began ‘fun gun dog’ classes. We all love it.
2015 I spoilt myself with Clover, my third Pointer and my ‘ blank sheet’, that I hoped to put all that I’ve learnt from Penny with the other two, into practice. So far so good, she is wonderful and I don’t regret my decision at all!
I am looking forward to attending training sessions and seminars in the future to further my knowledge of ‘positive training ‘ and canine behaviour.
