Louis James-Dow

A new and very welcome member of team Jalhar.


Louis has been a friend since we met him handling his own dogs.

This is how we first met Louis but even then his passion for showing and his love of dogs shone through. Always polite and well mannered Louis was always interested and wanted to learn more. We have kept in touch through face book over the years and I was very proud of him when he started his Veterinary Nurse training as seems the perfect job for him.

My bad health has meant we weren’t able to show even when we have lovely beagles at home and it has been very frustrating. Then in late summer 2017 Louis asked if he could visit us at our new house. From that visit we decided we could work together as Team Jalhar. Liz at home with day to day duties and helping with Training and conditioning the dogs and Louis, Handler and transport but far more than that as part of our Jalhar family too. This means he is involved in all we do. With this agreement in the first few months we had 3 Bobs one group 4 and the picture above shows Lucy’s first show LKA where she achieved her Crufts Qualification.

We are over the moon that this agreement is working so well. Our dogs love him and he has made our show dreams possibl even when I am not able to handle. We are very excited over our future together.
