Jan Stonehouse

Jan has been a part of Rugby's GCDS section since 1997. Rugby Dog Training Club is one of the largest clubs in the country. All her own dogs have taken part and achieved the standards required in the GCDS. She was in the Silver Display team at Crufts in 2003.

After recovering from a serious operation she became part of the instructors' team and worked hard. Prior to taking her Examiner's tests two instructors watched her instructing the classes. She readily accepted suggestions to improve her technique.

When the club co-ordinator became ill and died, Jan stepped up and now plays a vital role in encouraging members to take part in the scheme, with good success. All this is done in a very gentle but thorough way and making certain that everything is in place for the start of each course showing that she is an excellent promoter of the scheme.

She is now an A1 list Gold GCDS examiner and also finds time to help the scheme whenever it is required.
