Having lost Czech very suddenly and unexpectedly in December aged only 9 I now own Radler who was born in June 2017. He is a Sable German Shepherd Dog quite calm and seems very sweet natured loving people and dogs. I live in Timperley and work part-time at my husband’s accountancy firm in Broadheath. I have 2 grown up children and a grandson who is 18 months old. I particularly enjoy passing on my knowledge and experience on to new puppy owners helping them to train the new member of their family.

It was with great sadness, heartbreak and many tears when we had to say goodbye to our beloved CINDY in 2016 with bone cancer. She will be in our heart's forever R.I.P. Later in the year, DOLLY, a very lively blue roan cocker spaniel moved in to join our family. Our house wan not a home without a canine companion. She is proving to be a challenge in many ways, typical puppy behaviour. You do forget what hard work a puppy can be!!!!
Sandra started in our puppy class nearly 10 years ago and now help out in class with training and advice.
Sandra and Ted the Labrador have also achieved the gold GCDS award. Ted is a wonderful family member and loves doing tricks with Sandra’s grandchildren. He is also good with puppies and helps with the meet and greet skills.
