With Rachel being away for a few days, it's fallen to me to look after her lovely lad Charlie, to keep him happy and make him forget the temporary separation he's having to endure. But is that sorrowful expression due to his best friend not being with him ...... or the grouch aka me, not wanting to play ball with him for the umpteenth time ??

Now where is Honey ? Our big dog is more than happy to constantly keep an eye on the decorating ..... even if she has to go undercover!

The first photograph says so much more than two dogs playing. It's taken weeks for Dodger (L) and Frankie to be at the stage whereby both can play together without need for a lead, safe in the knowledge that they respond to a recall. Although they've not completed my residential training, such behaviour shows that both these young lads don't have much more to learn. And instrumental in their training has been Rachel who has worked tirelessly with me to turn these two into lovely dogs. Thank you Rachel!

Two weeks ago I met Milo for the first time. When he arrived he was very hyper and unfocused, but that initial lesson and the subsequent training his new owners have put in place are really paying off. Today he was much calmer and I know that with his owners, this rescue lad has really landed on his feet and will have a great life. Well done Milo.

Meet Dodger, a rescue Doberman who's just turned a year old. He's staying for residential training and it's very satisfying that this youngster is now off lead altogether in my field, listening to commands. Now for some open ground work where I have full confidence that he'll not let me down. Well done Dodger !
Chester's back again ....... making everyday feel like a Sunday afternoon ! No need to rush, no panic, no stress ....... just take it easy and relax. Now you know why this beautiful lad has been accepted as a Pets for Therapy dog.
