Buzz rolls back the years

Buddy has returned for a few days, just to liven things up a little. He is one lively little chartacter who just loves to play with other dogs, regardless of how big or boisterous they might be.
And they don't come more challenging than Jake, the Springer Spaniel. He hasn't got a nasty bone in his body - quite the opposite, but when it comes to playing with other dogs he can get a little over the top.
So there may be something in Buddy's gesture ! Meanwhile a local walk with Buddy and training dog Lucy was frequently interrupted by heavy showers finished off by a hailstorm ! Pity Honey !!

Honey is good enough to lick

Unlike Jake, who gets a different reaction !
Meanwhile Buzz has come in for a few days "rest".....ummmm ! This 13yr old Springer Spaniel is a little rotund and deaf but his youth can certainly return in a flash, given some smells and a field.
Good for you Buzz !!

....... just keeps on going

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

Meet a Serra da Estrela Mountain dog

This morning I met Bluto, a 7mth old Serra da Estrela mountain dog. Seven months and still growing ! He came for my sheep chasing course, but ended up leaving without every seeing a fluffy white creature. Instead, he left with more respect for his owner than when he first arrived. Seeing this young but powerful dog climb out of the car, oblivious to his owner, showed me he had no regard for him whatsoever. On the basis that no successful training will happen unless there is respect, I went about showing the owner how to achieve this. Once he'd mastered it, he left to practice the lesson in his home environment. But this won't be the last I see of Bluto - don't forget, I still have to make him know what he can and can't do when confronted by sheep. Janet
