About Jacki

I live in Gloucester with my husband and my adolescent hound, Rip. I’ve lived in Gloucester all of my life and from very early on showed a love for nature and all animals. Being born in the 1960’s, times were hard and simple and it was about family and being together. My nan who was housebound had a Labrador, Candy and I can remember holding her as a puppy and carrying her into my nans house for the very first time. From then we were going to be best friends and many a happy hour was whittled away playing with Candy in my nans garden, she was my best mate until 17 years later I carried her to the vets for the last time. Candy had a lasting impact on me. I joined the wonderful Puppy School in 2011 when I had my beautiful puppy and wanted to find somewhere that I could train her in a positive and kind way. We were devastated to lose her, way too early in 2022. During our 11 years together, we tried most dog sports and everything else in-between and it’s been an utterly fabulous experience. Had I not enrolled with Puppy School as a client with her, I’m not sure we’d have achieved the things we did together. I’m not sure I’d have fallen in love with all things dog training and grown such a huge passion for everything you can achieve with your dog, when you have the excellent foundations taught in Puppy School. The world really is your oyster and the Puppy School syllabus opens up a world of opportunity for you and the newest addition to join your family.
