About me
My dogs


I have lived with dogs all my life and have worked with them for over 20 years now.  Over these years I have dealt with many types of breeds all shapes and sizes and have learnt a lot about reading dogs body language. This has become a very important part of my work.

In our family home I grew up with a collie x, then later on a Lurcher joined our family, it was with him that I first started dog training classes.  At the age of 15yr I started working at a boarding kennels during weekends and school holidays then when I left school I became a full time member of staff. It was then once I was working full time I was allowed to get my very own dog, he was a little rescue pup crossbreed.  Whilst working at these kennels I got my first Dobermann "Tasha" who was bred there, since then I have had 4 dobermans. I took up dog showing with Tasha, then in July 1996 she had her first litter of puppies, then of course I had to keep a couple of bitches "Kayla & Sharna".  I also got a white boxer "Ellie".  All my dogs attended Oxted dog training club then some of them went on to join Westerham Agility school, I was also still showing my dobies, even managing to qualify getting Chelsea to Crufts.

In 1996 I changed my job to become the manager at Birchwood lodge kennels in Woldingham, where I stayed for the next 10years. During this time I also took over the running of Oxted dog training club, which became a very respected club in the area.
By 2006 the kennels I ran had been sold, so I decided it was time to move on, this is when I moved to Hailsham and started working for myself and set up K9 Solutions dog walking service.  I also joined the Eastbourne and district dog training club and then went on to becoming a committee member, then later on the Chairman. I also taught at the club, both in agility and obedience.   K9 solutions has been running now just over 10 years and has become extremely busy and has developed a good reputation which I am very proud of.


I currently have 3 dogs, a Dobermann called Diva, A Australian Kelpie called Shyla and a French Bulldog called Ralph.  I compete all over the county with Diva and Shyla in dog agility and have reached upto Grade 4 with my Kelpie & Grade 5 with my dobermann..
