Fiona Baird grew up in the Ashdown Forest in Sussex surrounded by well-behaved Golden Retrievers which had been bred and gundog-trained by her mother. Fiona later trained her own first bitch (Killie) to become a successful competitor in field trials and has continued breeding and training professionally ever since. Using her successful no-nonsense methods she has now trained over 25 different breeds from Beaucerons to Lhasa Apsos, mostly in basic discipline. She has also trained a large number of gundogs. Today, she gives one-to-one lessons in training as well as assistance in correcting bad habits.
