Brook's packed....nearly

Our final night with Brook and I think it's been a very good month. She's increased her weight and learnt commands and manners she never knew existed!  At 6.5 months old she still has alot of play in her but Dexter or Fran's dog Maddy have been more than happy to help out there.

The sock stealing thief is no more - now she'll pick up a sock and bring it to me, walking almost sideways while her tail wags furiously. And on the simple command of "dead", I have the sock in my hand ( before she goes off and looks for something else !). Typical trait of a Cocker.

I'm looking forward to Brook's owners collecting her as I know they think the world of her and hope they'll be pleased with how they find she can behave and act.

Dexter is now sleeping throughout the night and is a very relaxed dog. The sight of him jumping about wanting to play with Brook or Maddy is something to be seen - thankfully I have no fancy china! Again, I'm very pleased with how his training has progessed. He has gradually become more confident, standing calmly while cars or wagons pass us. Another 9 days to go for Dexter and I'm looking forward to seeing his training continuing to pay dividends.

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.
