My guest dog Tilly has turned the corner and is now returning on the recall, even when on the scent - very rewarding.
With eye contact now established, tomorrow I'll starting to cure her chasing of wildlife and interesting smells! The habit she had of jumping up has all but gone, which is just as well considering some of the wet weather of late. Nobody wants to be greeted with muddy paws!
Tilly is a lovely dog, typical of the Cocker breed. Inquisitive, alert and just lovely. I may end up getting one myself !!
And if Tilly and Fran's dog Maddy wasn't enough, we have another Cockerstaying! Brook's back - to everyone's joy by the looks of the photos. Dogs love to experiance new bedding, whether it's too big or small......or even just right! And no dog proves that point more than Paul's dog Jaffa.
Suffice to say, one word this old dog plays deaf to is "out".......or at least she tries to !
