I have been involved in agility and dog training for more than 20 years. Like many people, I firstly enjoyed the sport of agility as a hobby. After a serious riding accident, when I could no longer pursue my career as a Riding Instructor and Law Student, my life literally went to the dogs!
My Bank Manager was not impressed with my idea of making a living from Dog Agility Training. I started with a small trailer, 5 jumps and 5 pupils. Twenty years and many Bank Managers later I have now over 300 pupils who come training every week with their dogs.
Having made a job out of a hobby and being able to do something I really love doing has helped me to create a club environment, where people and dogs from all walks of life can come, learn, relax and have fun. To develop the potential which each pupil and dog bring with them when they join us, help them with their successes and their problems and see them grow, is one of the most rewarding experiences in my job.
Agility is my life!
