Toni Dawkins

How the story began…

Toni was raised with Border Collies.  Her mother did Obedience and later introduced Toni to Agility when she started her own club. 

25 years on she teaches Agility world-wide and says, “I love it!  I am also a hydrotherapist and take my dogs’ fitness very seriously.”

Amongst the huge multitude of successes the most memorable is?

“My most memorable success is winning the Crufts Championships with both my dogs the same year.  One in the Medium, and one in the Large.”

Toni currently owns three Border Collies and One Mini American Shepherd….

Minx (Border Collie) - 14 years old

A retired Agility Champion with eight tickets to her name.

Beep (Border Collie) - 9 years old

Also retired Grade 7, she competed at Crufts and qualified for the Olympia semis.

Cute (Border Collie) - 6 years old

Grade 7, he has run at Crufts and qualified for Olympia three times, last year finishing 12th against the best.

Sunflower (MAS) - 22 months

Toni’s first small dog - started competing in October and is already Grade 6.  Toni says she is very excited about this season with her...

My dogs have been fed CSJ for the last 16 years and I have no complaints. They love the food, are full of energy and I have no plans to ever change.

Thank you CSJ!”

The poo eating has stopped!

Dear Ceri.

I am writing to say a huge thankyou!!!

Our 10month old choc lab has been a poo eater for almost the entire time we have had her (since 8wks old). We have tried everything we could think of seeking support from other owners of dogs that poo eat and vets, nutritionalists and behavouralists - and to be honest, had almost given up.

After speaking to a friend whose dog eats your food, we decided to look at your website and eventually spoke to you on the phone. We talked about our dogs (3 labs - all with different requirements) and home situation, as well as indepth diet discussions, and decided to try your advice (we had nothing to lose as it couldn't be any worse!).

I have to say, we are over the moon to be able to say IT WORKED! (in the first day!!) The poo eating has stopped and her stools have become more normal, and we can now finally begin to enjoy our gorgeous dog.

Thank you so much for treating us as individuals, and following us through a very stressful problem.

We will continue to follow your advice and will be recommending anybody with the same issues to yourselves.

If anyone is reading this and is having the same problem with a dog, dont give up. There is help out there, honest!!
