My residential training guests

Meet Dolly, a young German Shorthaired Pointer who's a residential guest of mine. She really is a lovely dog and has grown in confidence over the past three weeks. On arrival she wouldn't sit to the command and never have stayed - how things change !
Her willingness to please has made Dolly a real pleasure to work with.

Dolly enjoys a blow dry
Ten month old Sophie arrived only a few days ago for residential training. A German Shepherd, she had started to make her owner's life somewhat of a misery with her antics and behaviour.
Paul, who likes German Shepherds, has been helping me to train her and we agree that she is on her best behaviour with both of us. Sophie's road work, heel work etc. is really good and I think this photo says alot about her. Being early days, she is not off the lead but being trained in our field on a long line which in time will come off when we're confident she will come to the recall every time.

Recent floods have been a welcome relief for some dogs, fed up with walking in continuous rain ! My dog Annie floods them more than most !

Now here's a dog in a hurry ! Paul's 10 month old Working Cocker Sumo is a water babe through and through.
But what's he in a rush for ?

Why the rush Sumo ?

Now this looks interesting. But what's he looking for ?

No snorkel needed

Good grief  - how did he know that was there. He really has a fantastic nose on him when he can smell through water !

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.
