Welcome to Petlodge
Through the following pages we aim to provide as much information as possible about our Boarding Kennels, Hydrotherapy Referral Centre and Agility Training. However, if there is anything additional you would like to know that is not covered please do give us a call.
Our names are Adrian and Linda Croxford and we have an 12 year old son called Daniel. We have owned dogs for the past 25+ years (currently own 12 dogs between us) and over that time have regularly competed, trained and judged in Dog Agility (well Linda does the judging!). Our love of Dog Agility and the successes we have achieved continues – but now through our son Daniel (age gets to us all !)
We bought Daniel his own dog (Sheltie) for his 5th birthday present and he does all his own dog care and training.
He has had the most fantastic last few years winning at Crufts in 2009 & 2008 where he competed against adults to be crowned the Kennel Club Small Starters Dog of the Year – which isn’t bad for a young lad who was only 9 years of age at the time! This year (2011) Daniel achieved his most prestigious win so far – he won the Small Dog Novice Agility Dog of the Year Final at Crufts – against many of the countries top adult handlers – and all at the tender age of 12 !!!
We continue to teach agility (and have done for the past 20+ years) and on the odd days at the weekend one of us is able to get away we now chauffer Daniel to agility shows. We were going to open a cattery unit but Linda got smitten with Hydrotherapy and so during early 2007 Linda commenced all the courses and training to become a hydrotherapist and we opened our hydrotherapy referral centre in September 07.
With the boarding kennels,hydrotherapy centre and agility we don’t have much time for any other hobbies!. We continue to work hard to ensure that Pet Lodge is regarded as an outstanding location for owners to board and rehabilitate their pets through the services we offer.
