On first meeting my residential training guest Sandy, Charlie knew he had to demonstrate who was in charge - and it certainly wasn't the big Retriever, lovely though he is.
And so with a little persuasion here and the odd tug there, order was established.

I think Paul went on a scouting mission to find out where all the mud pools were prior to this lovely lad arriving. And judging by Chester's appearance, it was time well spent !

Needless to say Paul is in his element with another Springer and neither seem bothered about the rain - although this photograph doesn't support that ! George seems to have taken to him which is not surprising, given that the two always walk together and Paul is also continuing with his training while he boards for the week.
