About Me

Hi! I’m Fiona. I’m a computer programmer, ski fanatic and Labrador enthusiast. My involvement with Labradors started completely by accident (you can read about it here), and I am now the proud owner of three lovely Labs. Two are from working lines, and the third (coming soon!) is from show lines.

I’m passionate about learning as much as I can about behavioural science and learning theory, so I can train them to the best of my ability. We all love our training, and teaching dogs to do what they were bred to do is massively fulfilling.

My dogs are pets above all else, and are hugely valued members of our little family. They enjoy the life of Riley, whoever that may be, spending their time lounging in the sun or on our leather sofas, until it’s time to go explore the mountains, the rivers and lakes, the endless vineyards, or wherever we happen to be headed that day.

I decided to start this blog to document the journey of our third puppy, who is This Little Doggy, punctuated with stories of training from my existing dogs. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy creating it!
