Oldies hit the peaks

Paul was out and about for some considerable time this morning with Robbie, Jaffa and Roma. Having parked in Dufton he then opted for a walk onto the Pennines - rather bleak and lonely according to him.
                      Meanwhile Dexter and Brook were back in the classroom...albeit with seperate lessons.
D., as he's being called within the family, was on and off the lead - to heel! It wasn't all training though. We had a great playtime together in a local wood and the enjoyment he was having was so obvious. He is so different to the dog that arrived just 9 days ago. He welcomes all the family when they arrive and is so comfortable with any other dogs - brilliant!
And Brook? What can I say about Brook? She is certainly going to be missed when her owners collect her! Her training continues to be successful and she is not allowed to get away with much - no more missing socks! She is still beside herself when she delivers a slipper or shoe to me, though the praise she receives and the word "dead", immediately make her realise that she doesn't really want it that much!

The Italian Connection - Harry the Spinone

Let me introduce you to Harry, an Italian Spinone. Harry arrived yesterday for a day's "try out", prior to any long term boarding. He's as gentle as he looks and those eyes .... ! Janet

"Come on Chief, smile !!"

"Come on Chief, smile !!" That look from 9 mth old Chief tells me I'm lucky to take even one photograph of him ! Chief is just one dog who has stayed with me since the New Year, either for boarding or residential training. Nearly all can be seen on my Cumbria Dog Training Facebook page, and with a husband who is more than cabaple Peanut enjoys the fells. Meet Nala, a beautiful Portuguese Water Dog, who, at 7 mths old is still displaying alot of puppy traits. She's staying for a 24 hr try out and has fitted in really well. I'm pleased to be able to say that Peanut is staying with me again. This young Cocker is such a lovely girl who makes herself right at home and gets on so well with everyone, both people and dogs. And finally, time for my own girls !

Keep Cool Sumo !

Few things are nicer than a beautiful summer's walk being finished off by a cooling swim in a beck, hidden from all and known by only a few. Paul's dog Sumo is in his element here, with the joy of jumping in, then swimming to retrieve a tennis ball. Sumo leaps for he's worth. Bert has figured out how to leave the far bank to cross the beck but unfortunately for him, he's sitting on the last rock. Next step will be into the water.....not a thing he particularly enjoys. Bert  A beautiful image captures a beautiful dog - Lewis, a Black Labrador. Lewis  Chester is a regular boarding dog and his owners asked Paul to take a series of photographs of him while he stayed with us. Here is just one of them. Chester What can I say ? This is me having alot of fun - especially with Milo, a Pug X Shih Tzu.
