Dogs, Leads, Towels ... but I forgot The Ark !

Dogs don't ask for much. Food, affection and exercise. Add to those simple things a touch of discipline and the result is an animal who loves me - warts and all !
But on days like today, I do wonder if they think I'm slightly mad ! I dragged Paul (with camera of course!!) on a walk which severly tested both of our walkiing equipment. The photograph below sums up exactly what I mean.
But don't misunderstand me. I really have no concern about the rain, in fact quite the opposite.

"Keep Up !"
Litte Buddy had a great time in the bracken. He was able to keep up whatever obstacles were in his way.

Buddy - with a very serious expression !
To see Roxy running around like she did was very rewarding. Her boundaries are very good now that we have bonded. Despite her size, she's a big puppy. Unlike waterbabe Brook, she chose to keep her feet on wet land!
"Come on in. The water's warm !"

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.
