SHEP!

Hi, my name is Craig. I’m a qualified dog trainer. I’ve been around dogs my entire life and grew up with five German Shepherds in the family home. I learnt to look after them from my Father and Grandfather. I’ve always had a passion for the big breeds and that continues to this day, being the proud owner of two Rhodesian Ridgebacks.  More>>>
