    Hi all,

    my name is Taylor, I live in Scotland and I am a student.
    I own a dog called Kelso (or rather he owns me :p). Kelso is a Collie x Lab, with a bit of staffie thrown into the mix somewhere. We adopted him from a rehoming center 5 years ago and have never looked back since.

    When we just adopted Kelso, he was stick thin, his shout was broken and he didn't know how to play. His gums bled when he chewed even a soft treat.

    5 years on and he is a changed dog. He has gone from a scared puppy to a bright, bouncy, confident and well behaved dog.

    I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone here and hearing everyone's stories about their own dogs.

    Any advice about training/behavior etc is more than welcome :)

    Thanks for reading and I'll see you guys around.

    Taylor x
