Beautiful little Pixie

Meet Pixie, my little 8 week old Cocker Spaniel puppy.
Pixie is into everything and the fact that she comes from Working lines means that she's only going to become nosier and faster with it !
As the only person who feeds her, lets her out and hugs her (!), the bond is already developing as I hear the patter of small paws following me around the house !

Pixie's first day - and looking a little startled by all the attention !

Marley stayed with us for almost a month while his owners were enjoying the Australian summer. He is great company to have around and would regularly wander into my office in the evening, just to check on what I was doing before returning to his bed !

Lulu is the divas diva ! Not content with her ample bed, I would find her curled up and comfortable on my chair !

It's not every day that we have a Ralph come to stay and even rarer for a Jug to be with us. But this Jack Russell x Pug was wonderful company and a real character. 

Serious Ralph

And the fun Ralph, which we usually saw !

Meet a Serra da Estrela Mountain dog

This morning I met Bluto, a 7mth old Serra da Estrela mountain dog. Seven months and still growing ! He came for my sheep chasing course, but ended up leaving without every seeing a fluffy white creature. Instead, he left with more respect for his owner than when he first arrived. Seeing this young but powerful dog climb out of the car, oblivious to his owner, showed me he had no regard for him whatsoever. On the basis that no successful training will happen unless there is respect, I went about showing the owner how to achieve this. Once he'd mastered it, he left to practice the lesson in his home environment. But this won't be the last I see of Bluto - don't forget, I still have to make him know what he can and can't do when confronted by sheep. Janet

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

Fran Ardley the Gun Dog Trainer

While Rachel is a trainer and partner in Cumbria Dog Training, my other daughter is a professional in gun dog trainer. Fran has been training dogs for owners from all over  the UK, as well as being asked to judge dogs in in the very male world of trialling. Not bad for a young lady still in her 20's ! Paul's six month old Working Cocker Spaniel Ella loves riding in the cars. She has tremendous spring in her skinny legs and gets into the back of the Hilux with little effort. It's a different story when it's time to leave. She's been trained never to jump out but to be patient and wait for her owner to pick her up, thereby preventing injuries ..... and vets bills !! When are we going to be there Dad ? Boarding dogs Charlie and his brother Alfie are staying with me for a few days, and as can be seen, a ball is something that creates a real bond. These two young dogs are lovely characters. Is this the cool way to carry a ball ? Scarlett, a yo
