Marie-Jo Thauvin

This is the Louis and Marie-Jo team

I am a Springer Spaniel from Co Wexford with loads of attitude.  Marie-Jo has had a keen interest in both mountaineering and dog training for the past 15 years.  She tells me that Snowdonia used to be her “play ground” and she would occasionally see people with search dogs there and think that it was a very good idea.

She moved to Ireland in the heart of Co Wicklow which afforded her the time to go about combining both interests by joining SARDA Ireland. (Thank you Brian, our first trainer)

We have been training since 2007 and so far we are progressing well (with lots of help from all in SARDA) though as usual…….the more you know, the more you realise there is to learn……. we both  wish the learning was as speedy as me when I’ve picked up a scent………

So, watch this space for our progress
