Why is snow so much fun ?

Nothing brings out the child in us like a drop of snow .... and judging by some of these photographs, we're not the only ones who think the white stuff is fun !
First appearances give the impression that snow is the last thing on Deefa's mind, but don't be mislead by that look. The poor lad is a gentle giant who didn't realise that his species could be as small as Honey - fully grown !
I like to think the photographs say alot about the dogs who come to my home, be it for boarding or residential training. They're different sizes, shapes and colours and temperaments but once here, they seem to gel and get on really well together.
For example, Roxy is a real mix of breeds including some Italian Greyhound - see her run and it soon becomes evident. But introduce snow to her and she likes nothing more than rolling about it in.
Roxy just keeps on rolling

Meanwhile Maddie just loves to catch the stuff. A fully trained Working Cocker Spaniel, this 2yr old can become a little deaf to commands when having fun, and for some reason just doesn't understand "that's enough for now" !
Maddie !!!
Honey is on a mission to prove that Chihuahuas are as tough as old boots . . . . . even if her left paw is getting frostbite !
No handbag for Honey ! (But some warm boots would be appreciated)

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.
