Robbie was collected this morning by his owners. He's a lovely dog and I hope to see him again soon.
However, young Brook is still with me and by the looks of the photograph, very much at home!
I'm really pleased with the way things are progressing, both in terms of her training and her socialising with other dogs. She's half the size of my dog Tilly but nobody has told her that. And Tilly's ears seem to be a favourite target.
One thing that's noticeable is that Brook will now bring things to me - or my family. When she first arrived, a sock was a prized possession that just demanded a game of catch!!
Now, things are much different. We see her with something - frequently Paul's slippers - then just call her name and tell her to "bring". With her tail wagging off her bottom and walking forwards with a very definate twist in her body, she just "gives" when told to do so.
She's a lovely little thing.


  1. By the look of this picture she will need a bigger bed soon!!! Charlotte

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.
