Saying "goodbye".

Not many things tug at my heart strings and cause me to reach for the tissues, but dogs are the exception. So you can imagine how I was when it came to saying "goodbye" to two of the three pups I had.
My lads are now living in Kent with fabulous owners who are fully experienced with Clumber Spaniels. It was wonderful to receive this photograph of Bill, having made himself at home !!

Travelling from Cumbria to Kent is a tiring journey !

Running the business means long hours, with early starts and quite late finishes. Paul was on "early" duties recently and was met by this beautiful sunrise.

It's not always raining in Cumbria
Our Chihuahua Honey is never left out of anything - she makes sure of that ! And like all the dogs, travel means riding in the safety of the transit box in our truck.

Meet 9 mth old Sidney, a Dutch Shepherd who has travelled from Portsmouth to stay with me for the next few weeks to be trained. Even at this young age he is a very strong dog, though thankfully the pulling he arrived with is a thing of the past !

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.
