About Me



I've been involved with dogs since early childhood, as my father always had a labrador to take rough shooting. I started off with my crossbreeds in the early 1980s, competing and stewarding at obedience and agility - qualifying out of Starters.


I began teaching obedience at both local clubs and privately on a one to one basis. I got into showing by accident, with my first Munster, and the bug bit! I bred my first litter in December 1992, the same year as I made up my first Show Champion (actually my second LM, Sh Ch Gorsebank Baron Gustav JW).  I've been seen on the working scene competing at Working Tests, but through work commitments no longer compete, although my dogs do hunt, point and retrieve on their daily walks.


My jobs have been varied; I did dog-sit for other people privately in their homes, and I have changed my opinions on many breeds! I did look after peoples Boarding Kennels too, and am  a qualified groomer. I no longer dog sit since father's illness, I am his carer and through this show very little presently.


I was a member of the L.M.C. management committee since 1996, and Show Secretary from 2000 to 2008. I helped organise the yearly Breed Seminars, and was the Club's archivist, which was very interesting, but could be very frustrating. I also give advice as a breed and general advisor on a national magazine. As you can see, I've many strings to my bow!


My dogs at home seem have been a  shifting population, due to circumstances now only have my 4 gordons.
