Christmas with Lewis and Harry

I have two dogs staying with me for several weeks, including the Christmas period.
Lewis is a Collie who displays a most unusual and initially scary trait; when he's very happy and submissive, he comes by name, wagging  his tail ...... with his top lip curled backed showing every tooth on his top jaw !
For the first timer, it's a case of "help"!
But aggression is not part of this lovely dog's makeup. Lewis is very placid and has always fitted in really well here.
Equally placid is Harry, a Yellow Labrador. Like Lewis, this is not the first time that Harry has stayed with me and if truth be said, these two are always welcomed back because they are such nice dogs.
Photos will be taken very shortly, which will include Lewis' lovely smile !

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 !

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 !
