A Jack Russell Terrier? My god they will burn you up, they never stop” – George Foreman
“My animal loves are dogs and horses. My parents were terrier and spaniel fans and this passion for the breed continued with my love for Patterdales and Jack Russells. These tough stubborn little characters are not the easiest of dogs but are full of love and loyalty.
Having ridden horses most of my life and a horse owner for fifteen years, losing my beloved Belgium Warmblood Zeb a few years ago made me focus on my dogs after deciding to not buy another horse. I have started responsibly breeding Jack Russells using my fab stud dog Kobe and my interests in everything canine is now a big part of my life.
I have clipped horses over the years, so it felt natural to clip my own dogs which has now led to a new career. I have trained with the marvellous and professional team at South Coast Dog Grooming Academy learning every aspect of the work involved. (You can read about my training experience through Haynet, a leading rural life blog that I write).
I qualified in March 2021 and am very excited to launch my own business focussing on providing a professional dog grooming service with Country Barn Dog Grooming.”
