Each and every day a dog impresses me with some aspect of their intelligence. One particular skill that I think they’re very good at is their ability to count the number of treats they’ve been given for a particular task – or the lack of them 😉 You see dogs aren’t so different to us.
This question should really sit alongside questions such as “How long is a piece of string?” 😉 Perhaps the question isn’t just “When’s the right time?” but more, what other factors are involved in making the decision. Financial – can I afford the best food, training, insurance and veterinary care for this new puppy or
Personally speaking I like nothing better than a cuddle with one of my dogs on the sofa at the end of a long day 🙂 But I can see why people don’t always let their dogs join them on the sofa – and I respect their reasons for doing so. It’s all about personal preference.
I’m sure local dog owners will agree with me in saying that this hill fort that overlooks the village of Yatton, is a lovely place to walk your dog. I have always accessed the hill via the car park at the bottom of the hill which is at the end of Henley Lane (see image below).
This is one of my favourite woods to walk the dogs in, as there is so much to explore – plus the great disabled track around the woods is perfect for both children’s buggy’s and wheelchairs/ disability scooters alike. The woods are beautiful at every season in the year, and the changing landscape makes it such

Are you or is someone you know looking for a new young dog for gun dog or agility work? Remi is a 9 month old, high energy, intelligent and biddable medium sized dog. She has not yet been spayed, but she is microchipped and up to date with her vaccinations. I would require her future owner
The KCAI Career Zone in Partnership with PRO PLAN had a very successful second year at Crufts 2014, with positive acclaim from delegates and peers on the informative seminars and learning opportunities offered. 2015 will see informative and thought provoking lectures from esteemed guests, covering a variety of topics that will interest all who work
This is one of my favourite exercises to teach, and by far the most useful on a daily basis. A dog that understands to get on it’s bed in the face of distractions, is a nice, easy dog to live with. By teaching our dogs this simple cue, we can reward them for doing what
We all want a happy dog don’t we? Seeing them content makes us happy and they’re less likely to cause us unnecessary stress and anxiety if all is well in their world. But I know from the people I meet through private consultations and home visits that living with a dog isn’t always the wonderful experience that they
For some reason my family have always referred to this particular walk as Belmont Hill woods. But so that you are able to find and enjoy these amazing woods, I am using the better known and accurate name of Ashton Hill Woods instead 😉 This is a lovely walk to tramp around, with a range
I’ve found the dogs I’ve lived with and worked with to be some of my best teachers. The biggest and most important lesson they’ve shared with me, is just how the devil is in the detail 🙂 You see dogs notice EVERYTHING and they respond accordingly. Sometimes with maddening results. But they’re not being difficult, they’ve
