Looks like another busy month ahead!

When I was 17 years old, I remember walking down Bournemouth beach on a summer morning with my dad while watching dogs and their walkers dashing on the sand and throwing themselves into the beach. He turned to me and said, “In order to be happy in life, Mark, you must always have something to look forward to.” And from looking ahead in my diary for July, he certainly wasn’t wrong.

My experience in Dog Law with Trevor Cooper…

June was indeed a busy month for me. However, busy for me is a great thing because I feel in my element when I’m busy and productive, there was no doubt that I felt busy and productive when I was working for Trevor Cooper with DogLaw LTD. People have been asking me what I did while I was there, what was my role? My role was to be his Personal Assistant and Organiser for his seminars, making sure everything is prepared so both Trevor and the attendees were happy so all Trevor had to do was focus on his talk when he walked in.

I was given a huge list of seminars he was preparing, sponsored by Petlog for the next coming months including those in Herne Bay to Stoneleigh and Harrogate. These seminars were a range of talks for dog clubs and dog owners, to dog specialists in various industries in the dog world.

South of England Basset Hound Walk – Alice Holt

Last Weekend I was at the South of England Basset Hound walk set the historical Alice Holt Forest which is located on the Hampshire/Surrey border.

The South of England Basset Hound Club hold a number of walks around the South of England including Studland Bay and Swanage by the beach. Generally we get a great response and occasionally have other hound owners wanting to join in on the action, it’s a wonderful opportunity to have a great family day out.

Lead, ready. Biscuits, ready. Camera, ready. Basset, ready. Off we go!
