I was fortunate to be one of three dog owners featured for a whole year in the 'Your Dog Magazine'. As a diarist my activities with my dogs was published 
each month.

It was a memorable year to have in print with the conception and growth of Fun 4 All Dog Club.
  
The magazine printed the 
unforgettable monthly antics of Ella, Measles 
and the really lovable, but my extremely naughty black Labrador Rupert.
 


Rupert was
 on the whole a pretty typical Labrador, however he    really had taken his lust or food to the very extreme and       gained his 
own fan club in the process. The diary concluded in March 2009 when I met with the other Your Dog Magazine diarists at the Crufts show.
I found myself looking for a new dog club that offered a variety of 
non competitive fun activities.
It had to be in a safe environ
ment, with sociable group of friendly like minded people; I wanted it to be a relaxed happy sociable atmosphere.  

It was important to me the club didn't offer competitive training, as it had to 
be fun and for the dogs and their owners!


I had already been an Agility and Basic Obedience Instructor for over 3 years at the time. However in 2008 I took an instructors course qualifying as a ACAI Qualified Agility Club, Approved Basic Instructor and soon the time was right to move forward with my own club. 

In the Autumn of 2010 I was invited by the ITV to appeared with Measles in the first Michael Ball afternoon show as it was to feature Great Dane Agility. 
It was a very long but interesting day in the recording studio. The dogs performed wonderfully with two of Michael Balls fans in a mini Giant Breed Agility course competition.  It was funny, Giant Breed dogs performing Agility 22 sq ft of stage floor space.

During 2009 to 2011 I wrote a monthly Dog article for The Forest Magazine; Charnwood's most popular free full colour magazine. 

In 2011 I was a guest expert in the Your Dog Magazine's February issue, answering readers questions on Agility, Flyball and Rally Obedience.

May 2017 after 8 years in the field behind The Bulls Head pub, we move to another wonderful setting at Lubcloud Tearooms on Charley Road, situated on the boarder of Shepshed and Oaks in Charnwood. 


After four hard weeks of fencing and ground preparation the club reopened for our fun
agility classes and a new service of Secure Free Running Field Hire. How wonderful for owners who have never walked their dog off lead, or fearful  of their dog running off or multiple dog owners to have the venue to themselves, complete with toys and agility equipment.
