Residential Guests

Sophie has just returned home having spent the past few weeks staying with me as a residential training guest. An 11 month old German Shepherd, she was very responsive and a quick learner which has made it a joy to train her.
At different stages of training Paul took over, just to make sure the she would  do the same thing for him as well as for me, which she did. And on collection, Sophie's owner was met by a new, calmer dog who wouldn't run away ! 

Meet Buster, an 18 month old Cavachon (Cavalier King Charles x Bichon Frise).
It took a day or two to see the real dog but now I know I've one cheeky and very affectionate lad living with me. This photograph seems to sum Buster up !
At the moment he's working in my field on the long line but it's only a matter of time before this is removed and he'll have more freedom ..... and I'll be confident that he will return to me on his name or whistle every time he hears it !

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.
