Chasing tails…

Just chasing our tails catching up on the walks from last Friday and yesterday! We had lovely weather both days, sigh…happiness is a sunny dog walk!

Archie and Gena enjoying the rays…Gus doesn’t even look that small next to these guys, and yet I still think of him as a small dog! No idea why…

Blue skies, that’s what we like…

P1210767 P1210769 P1210771

Gus and Booboo know all the secret drinking spots! This big tree collects water right ontop, which the boys know all too well. Look at them cueing politely though! See America, even British dogs know how to cue properly!! 😉

P1210772 P1210775 P1210780

Catch up!!

Sorry for the long pause between posts my lovely followers. It has been a very VERY busy week! Lots to catch you up on!

First up, I had an absolutely fantastic day yesterday at the Victoria Stilwell ‘Inside Your Dogs Mind’ seminar held at Heriot-Watt Watt University. Victoria was an amazingly engaging speaker, warm, funny and clearly passionate about her work. The seminar was very interesting and informative and it was brilliant to hear such a well known trainer speak openly about issues I too am passionately against, such as puppy mills, breed specific legislation and of course harmful punitive training methods.  I would recommend anyone to go and see her when she returns to the UK. If you would like to know more about Victoria and her Positive Training methods please visit her facebook page  https://www.facebook.com/VictoriaStilwell.

I had great company at the seminar also in the form of Miss Abigail from Paws N Pooches and Lorraine at Waggy Walks. Thanks for the great chats ladies! Hope to see you both again soon.

So what else has been happening this week…well our shipment of 42 tennis balls finally arrived, woohoo!!!
