ABOUT ME 

 
HELLO MY NAME IS KAREN AND I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A DOG LOVER. AS A CHILD I DESPERATELY WANTED A DOG BUT WAS NEVER ALLOWED ONE. EVERY CHRISTMAS I WOULD WRITE A PLEADING LETTER TO SANTA TO BRING ME A DOG BUT THAT NEVER HAPPENED ! I NEVER STOPPED THERE AND STARTED TO WALK ALL THE DOGS IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD. ONE DOG I WILL NEVER FORGET WAS A BOXER DOG CALLED BRET. HE WAS SUCH A STRONG DOG AND REALLY HE USED TO TAKE ME FOR A WALK. I WAS ONLY 9 YEARS OLD ! 
SINCE THEN I HAVE HAD MANY DOGS I AM GLAD TO SAY. AT ONE POINT I HAD 5 DOGS, 4 WERE SPRINGER SPANIELS AND ALL HIGHLY SPRUNG AND THE OTHER ONE WAS A JACK RUSSEL.
THE LAST DOG I HAD WAS A RESCUE DOG NAMED TANGO. BECAUSE OF HIS PAST HISTORY HE WAS DUE TO GET PUT TO SLEEP AS HE WAS VERY AGGRESSIVE DUE TO HIS AWFUL START IN LIFE. KNOWING THIS I JUST HAD TO HAVE HIM AND TO BE HONEST I DIDN'T REALISE WHAT I WAS TAKING ON. BUT WHEN I SAW HIM SITTING IN HIS KENNEL I JUST KNEW I COULD HELP HIM. HE WAS A CROSS BREED DEER-HOUND AND WOLFHOUND, A BIG DOG ! HE WAS A HOOLY AT TIMES BUT TURNED OUT TO BE MY BEST PAL AND LIVED TILL HE WAS 16YRS OLD. I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE 15 BEAUTIFUL YEARS WITH HIM. I AM SO GLAD HE CHOSE ME TO BE HIS FRIEND.
I AM HAPPY TO SAY AFTER GETTING OVER THE LOSS OF TANGO I NOW HAVE A HUNGARIAN VIZSLA, A BEAGLE AND AN ADORABLE CAT. MY DOGS DO ACCOMPANY ME NOW AND AGAIN WHILE I AM OUT WALKING MY WAGGLY TAILS PACK.
I DO HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT AND UNDERSTANDING FOR DOGS AND I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS.
I AM A QUALIFIED DOG TRAINER AND USE MODERN SCIENTIFIC METHODS, NO FORCE ,NO PAIN ,POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT TRAINING. WAGGLY TAILS WILL NOT USE INTIMIDATION, PHYSICAL PUNISHMENT OR ANYTHING TO SCARE YOUR DOG WHILE YOUR DOG IS BEING TRAINED.I AM A MEMBER OF IMDT - INSTITUTE OF MODERN DOG TRAINING. AS A MEMBER I AM ASSESSED EVERY YEAR AND THROUGH IMDT I ATTEND A COMPREHENSIVE RANGE OF CONTINUAL COURSES IN ORDER TO EXPAND MY DOG TRAINING AND BEHAVIOR KNOWLEDGE.
