The other day I received a phone call offering me a dog. No ordinary dog though.
Rather unfortunate circumstances for the owner have made me the very proud owner of Honey - who has obviously made herself at home.
I was very sad knowing the reasons for her permanent stay. Without embarrassament, I admit that I cried on being told. I had a mixture of feelings, from sorrow through to pure happiness.
I'm very very pleased that Honey is one of "my" dogs and know that she will be a real benefit to future guest dogs who arrive with anxiety issues because she has that certain little way about her.

Honey ....... surveying all before her.


  1. Honey I know will love her new permanent home. It brought tears to my eyes seeing her there on her cushion, but I know she will be well loved...

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

Bailey goes back to school

My daughter Rachel has been working with me for some months now, both walking and and very occasionally, helping to train dogs (with the owners knowledge). Two weeks ago, she was given the responsibility of turning around the behaviour of young tearaway Bailey, a Cocker Spaniel. He arrived pulling, no recall and having absolutely no eye contact. But with persistence and a little hard work, things are really starting to change !

"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 !
