Time to mellow

Having achieved all I could with Ellie, her owners and I decided it would be best to return her to own home and for me to make a number of home visits to see if all my training had paid off in the environment it’s most needed.
Our first visit took us to the vets in Appleby, a place which Ellie knows and where she would become over excited and a bit of a handful. Her owner was wished “good luck” when, on a previous visit, she had said she was going to have her dog trained to become a much calmer animal.
So it was a real joy to be there and see such a different dog! Her owner was thrilled to see Ellie behaving in such a calm manner and this continued around the town, as we were met by people young and old.

Not wishing to be left out of “the new me” category, Jack has continued to impress! He is such a calm dog now who takes notice of Paul’s commands as well as mine. I say this because I believe it’s important he doesn’t respect just one person – me. The last thing I want is for him to ignore his owner!

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.
