The Gypton Dog School has been running now in its present location for thirteen years. It was originally created as a pet dog training club in 1986, by Jenny Harknett, and ran successfully for four years in South Norwood. It was then disbanded due to a move in location. The club was reinstated in 2005, still with the original name "Gypton" which is the Kennel Name (breeder's affix) owned by Jenny, and the dog club classes are now held in Coney Hall, near West Wickham.
The dog club also has its own Display Team who perform at local fetes in the summer time.
Jenny has owned the affix "Gypton" for 40 years and, under this affix, has bred occasional litters of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and Working Sheepdogs. Jenny has owned, shown, bred and trained dogs for over 40 years, including Cavaliers, working sheepdogs, spaniels, and German Shepherd Dogs. Jenny also currently owns a Eurasier, a breed that is numerically quite rare in the UK.
Jenny qualified as an Accredited Instructor under the Kennel Club "KCAI" scheme in 2007, in the categories for Companion Dog Training and Competitive Obedience Training. To find out more about this scheme, visit the Kennel Club website.
