Long line work with Pebbles

It's very unusual that nearly a month goes by without an update of what's been happening, but the truth is I've been rather busy !
I usually work 7 day weeks which, although tiring, are very enjoyable and obviously by choice. The days are full, what with "sheep chasing" lessons, day courses and training my residential guests.

In for a month is Pebbles, a Border Collie whose progress I'm very pleased with.
This young girl is very bright and eager to learn, which makes training her even more enjoyable. Having my own field and garth allows me the opportunity to train on a long line without the need to see who may be approaching across a field or along a footpath.
A rather proud looking teacher !
I thought I would include a second photo of Pebbles, which, although not in sharp focus, does in fact show that the Teacher is not averse to playing with the pupil !
Every lesson includes some fun !

I think Cedar has had enough ....... for now
Cedar, a Brittany Spaniel, has arrived for two weeks and judging by the photograph below, doesn't want to hear the word "walk" for an hour or two. What makes me smile is the positioning of her front paws !

Meanwhile Her Highness decided that she would like to try a little goodie I had in my pocket.
Honey's spring is quite remarkable when she wants something, judging by these pics.
Every dog entering the house is bigger than she is, but within a few moments she's introduced herself to them and they soon get to know who the boss is !

"Tell me in one word or less if you like it .....
..... I take it that's a "yes" then !"

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.
