Battle of the Giants

Finally, Honey has met a dog she can look straight into the eyes of without suffering neck strain - and she's loving every minute of it!
Tilly is here for several weeks and is more than a match for my little dog. There's never any problems created between the two, just alot of mad dashes and even madder glances at each other ! 

"At last ...... I'm taller than another dog !!! "
The lovely dry weather somewhat disguises the real nip that's in the air when I'm out on the tops. However, Paul's dog Jaffa and young Jaxson, who is boarding with me, seem completely unaware of it.

Jaffa (L) and Jaxson (R)
I have a first at the moment - namely Theo is the first German Shepherd who has boarded with me.
At just 6 months old, he's a large dog ..... even more so if you're a Chihuahua. However, Theo's curiosity as to "what's this funny little thing ?" has been met with a rather cold reception by the Diva ! A few snaps here and a few snaps there have told him to back off, before she struts away, tail in the air !
Thank goodness Honey is a dog and not a human !

Day One and Theo decides to rest by the bosses' chair !

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 !

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

Fran Ardley the Gun Dog Trainer

While Rachel is a trainer and partner in Cumbria Dog Training, my other daughter is a professional in gun dog trainer. Fran has been training dogs for owners from all over  the UK, as well as being asked to judge dogs in in the very male world of trialling. Not bad for a young lady still in her 20's ! Paul's six month old Working Cocker Spaniel Ella loves riding in the cars. She has tremendous spring in her skinny legs and gets into the back of the Hilux with little effort. It's a different story when it's time to leave. She's been trained never to jump out but to be patient and wait for her owner to pick her up, thereby preventing injuries ..... and vets bills !! When are we going to be there Dad ? Boarding dogs Charlie and his brother Alfie are staying with me for a few days, and as can be seen, a ball is something that creates a real bond. These two young dogs are lovely characters. Is this the cool way to carry a ball ? Scarlett, a yo
