My name is Daisy Boxer and I have lived with my proud parents, Lyn and Fred for two years. I came into their lives when their 12 year old Boxer, Patch, sadly went over the bridge.
Mum and Dad have had rescue babes for many years, Patch proved to be very challenging, he came from a troubled background and despite enrolling with a dog trainer (not Helen, they didn’t know of her then, and he was asked not to return after only a few weeks!!). He remained unpredictable with strangers and dogs for the rest of his life. Mum and Dad really wanted a puppy to whom they could give a gentle and loving start to life but at their age (a fit 69 and 70) they weren’t sure they were being fair.
They took lots of advice and decided that they still had plenty to offer. I came into their lives at the age of 13 weeks and Lyn (on recommendation) contacted Helen and arranged a ‘one to one’.
Helen and Shirley came to our home and I think, like Mum and Dad, immediately fell in love with me. I joined training a few weeks later, took to it like a duck to water, and we loved every minute. Mum and I have learned so much and are really missing the classes and friends due to Lockdown. Hopefully once we are able to train again I will be taking my Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Gold Award. Mum says she is so proud of me, I am such a good girl, everyone we meet comments how well behaved I am, but the man accolade must go to Helen who Mum wishes she had known when she had Patch.
We have a motor home, so we go away, when permitted and do lots of lovely walks and I meet loads of other people and dogs, life is great. I send my love to all my friends at Lincs Training – Dog Training Made Easy and hope to see you all soon.
