I have read with great interest dozens of topics on here. I am a bloke, 37 and my main interests are dog training and dog sports. I have two dogs Benson (roughly 10 years old) a Bedlington Terrier he came to me as a rescue with some serious issues ( relating to nervous aggresion) he is a great friendly confident dog now and over the years has done agility and obedience he has recently retired and trains now only for fun. Lewie is 2 years old and a extremely focused young dog. His searching and tracking skills are very good and his agility and obedience are getting there I am very proud of him. He is a black labradoodle ( I know they aren't everyones cup of tea but I love him and thats all that matters surely???) We are all very lucky to live in a lovely dog friendly part of Northumberland and have plenty of space and friends with dogs to walk with.
