Q. Who was that ??!! A. Harry, that's who.

While I was spending a couple of hours with Jet's owners, demonstrating everything that she'd been taught prior to them taking her home, Paul decided to take the dogs out for me. Thankfully he had his camera with him for Harry ! If ever a dog epitomised an animal letting of steam, he does. With tremendous grace, he absolutely charges over the field ...... though thankfully understands the recall ! Play with me Brooke Harry is in pursuit of Brooke, a beautifully natured Cocker who I trained for a month at the start of the year.

Jet arrived a few days ago for some residential training and so far so good ! This one year old black Lab has a lovely personality. Her training is coming on really well which I'm pleased with.

This aspect is so important and this was amply proven today by Grace. Initially she lacked the confidence of Jet but once in the field, her fears melted away and she was racing about enjoying herself. Janet Jet in full flow Grace - there is also a white version of the same dog !
