Founders

Co-Founder (Chairman)

Lucy Bonnett has been a dog lover since childhood. The first dog she ever trained was her Grandparents’ Basset Hound, marching it up and down the garden to heel, teaching it to down, sit and even recall, no mean feat for a Basset Hound!

Lucy quit her office job in 1998 in order to bring home two dogs, one a rescue Collie/Springer and the other a Border Collie pup.  Here began her love affair with Border Collies and training.  She set up a dog walking business and a dog training club.  She has been running both successfully ever since.  Her desire to see the profession she loves both recognised and regulated inspired Lucy to get involved with founding APDW.
