Snowballs for Sasha and Charlie

The dogs have been making the most of the recent heavy snow, either with me in my fields or with Paul on the local Fells.
"Thanks Sasha !"
But for two dogs, these conditions become somewhat disabling after a short time, due to their coats. Sasha, my Cockerpoo residential training dog and Charlie, my daughter’s Cocker Spaniel, are slowed down by the weight and discomfort of snowballs on their legs.
The photo of Sasha had to be enhanced as she is so very dark, and somewhere underneath all of that hair are two eyes.
Judging by her gesture I can only assume she doesn't like being photographed !
Meanwhile Charlie is oblivious to both Paul and the weather
. Unlike Sasha, he never stops to pick off the snowballs, but just keeps running, albeit slower and slower and with all four legs further and further apart !
"Snowballs ? Where ?"

Meanwhile poor Tasha was somewhat confused about this tree. Does she go and investigate or does she hold back and see if Paul is daft enough to explore ! All I'll say is that this young German Shepherd is no fool !
"Umm ...... this isn't a real tree"
However before the snow arrived there was time for play. With a ball and rope to fetch, the game could still be going on if Paul had allowed it.
"Found It !"
Meanwhile Lewis has enjoyed a holiday with us while his owners are away. The photo really displays how alert this Border Collie is, and his natural ability for rounding up is always evident when out with other dogs.
Lewis on alert - as usual

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.
