And so as I sit here I can honestly say we have turned things around on another dog. Wilf, a lovely Working Cocker Spaniel, arrived somewhat misguided. But it quickly became evident this youngster didn't have a bad bone in his body - just highly charged and with no manners or commands.
Rachel has worked frequently with him and it's all starting to pay off - no more long line and no more lead. Well done Rachel - and well done Wilf !
On arrival, Bear thought it was great fun to jump onto his hind legs and put his front feet on my shoulders ! At 5-ft 3 - on a good day - this was something I didn't completely agree with and felt lesson one should concentrate on this. I'm pleased to say that we're now onto lesson 2 !!
Paul captured this beautiful heroine in our garden just a few days ago as it endeavoured to find something to eat.
