When Nelly met Tasha

When Tasha stayed recently, she was introduced to Nelly, Fran's Cocker Spaniel pup who's just over 12 wks old.
Now on first sight, everyone would want a Nelly. But hang around and you may have second thoughts as the photographs tend to show.
Nelly is the most determined character I've met. But if Fran doesn't end up exhausted by the event, I can see her having a great time training this little thing to be a gun dog.
As for Tasha - I don't think she'll forget you know who in a hurry !


No dog is too big for a hug from the pup
The trouble is she doesn't get the hint .............
........... to leave Tasha alone !
So Tasha trys - in vain - to frighten with a serious look
But all's forgotten the moment a ball is thrown ........... and who's going to get it ????

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

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
