Harry the Springer Spaniel

For speed, read Harry the Springer Spaniel !

This young lad has been staying with me for residential training and has been an absolute joy - I think these photos say it all.

His owners bought him from well recognised breeders of "working" Springers and along with his speed came a lovely temperament. Every morning when I walk into my kitchen, this happy lad greets me with something, and when Paul can't find a shoe or sock, chances are Harry is parading about with it in his mouth !

Without doubt I have one of the most enjoyable careers a person could have.Yes it can be testing and tiring, with me frequently working seven days a week ( don't say anything Paul :) ) but I can honestly say that the people I meet and the dogs I work with make it so much more than a job.

And seeing a dog like Harry change in only a few weeks, or the more testing Tilly and Teddie recently, I know that my hard work has brought about something much more rewarding than just money.

Harry and me fianlly see the sun
"Quick, take the pic - I want to go !"
"I love you Janet"!

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 !

Keep Cool Sumo !

Few things are nicer than a beautiful summer's walk being finished off by a cooling swim in a beck, hidden from all and known by only a few. Paul's dog Sumo is in his element here, with the joy of jumping in, then swimming to retrieve a tennis ball. Sumo leaps for he's worth. Bert has figured out how to leave the far bank to cross the beck but unfortunately for him, he's sitting on the last rock. Next step will be into the water.....not a thing he particularly enjoys. Bert  A beautiful image captures a beautiful dog - Lewis, a Black Labrador. Lewis  Chester is a regular boarding dog and his owners asked Paul to take a series of photographs of him while he stayed with us. Here is just one of them. Chester What can I say ? This is me having alot of fun - especially with Milo, a Pug X Shih Tzu.
