Ligiro ( pronounced Li-GEE-roh) is a mash-up of the 2 dogs who started it all..
Liam; my heart and soul. Gimli; my funny bone and..Robinson..to wrap it up in a neat bow.
Liam died in 2012 of an un-diagnoed neurological disorder, although we suspect it was DM (Degenerative Myelopathy). He was a sensitive guy and I learned a lot working with such a kind soul. Sadly, we lost Gimli to the same ailment in February 2016.
Every dog who has passed through my life contributed to my passion, but it was Liam and Gimli who gave me the courage to get into the performance ring & 'hang my shingle' as a trainer spending countless hours by my side in the classroom. They were my co-workers, constant companions and inspiration so it only seemed right to name the business after them.
