Anthony Clarke is known all around the world for competing and handling agility dogs, from an early age Anthony has been successful
with his training of dogs and this has seen him compete for his country on many occasions His desire to help and develop dogs and
handler partnerships sees him finally opening up the Lechlade K9 Centre.
I have always had an interest in dogs from an early age, and have owned Belgian Shepherds for over 30 Years, recently adding Shetland
sheepdogs to the mix. Since the age of 10, I have been involved in the sport of dog Agility and have travelled and competed all over
the country and abroad. I represented my country in 2019 at the world Agility Open championships in Holland, and was selected again
Before coming to Lechlade K9, I previously worked in veterinary practice for nearly 12 years, and prior to that worked as an
illustrator in the card and gift industry. I then started my own design brand, ‘Top Dollar Design’, which is inspired by my very own
dog ‘Dollar’, producing dog inspired gifts which I now do alongside my current job. I am very lucky to have the best of both worlds,
combining my creative side and working with dogs.
I have owned and worked with dogs for over 40 years and initially started my dog grooming business ,“Lechlade Dog Grooming” from the
then family home in Hambidge Lane where I lived with my late husband Pat and two sons Anthony and Jonathan. I have owned a variety of
breeds including Labradors, Springer and Working Cocker spaniels, Terriers and recently a Malinois Belgian Shepherd.
Upon moving to Willow Tree Farm, Lechlade Dog Grooming was included in my son Anthony's business venture at Lechlade K9 Centre.

Having worked with horses and gained my experience, it was a natural transition into the dog world. I've worked with Jackie for the
past 3 years, grooming and work alongside Tanya in the Hydrotherapy pool.
I started agility with my terrier cross to keep him out of mischief 14 years ago and was hooked. I have a Shetland sheepdog and we
