Dexter the puppy

With Brook now gone, Dexter seems a little lost. However, a couple of good walks will soon cheer him up!
He’s great fun to take on a walk. His size makes it very easy to forget that he’s only a year old, but I’m reminded of this when he suddenly starts to play, and the way he seems to bounce on the spot, ready to be “challenged”.
Yesterday we went on two long walks and last night he was out for the count, sprawled out in the living room. Thankfully for me this continued throughout the night.
I was very pleased with him yesterday. I had to leave him for a couple of hours as I dealt with Brook and her owners. In the past I was never too sure what I would find when he’d been left on his own but he’s come to respect my home. As such, I returned to find him half asleep with nothing damaged or out of place.
Just what I wanted, for both for my home and for Dexter’s attitude to it.

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.
