Puppies Galore!

Nothing quite as likely to get an awwwwww as 8 squiggly puppies… unless you’re are trying to corral them into a line up? Just finished working on Georgina’s lovely litter and they were a handful to be sure. The photos don’t really show the bedlam, apart from a few?

Eventually we had to get Mum to give them a little feed and then, at last, they began to quieten down. Tula wasn’t too impressed either!

But with full tummies they all started to cooperate… a bit anyway!

At last, the job was done and everyone was happy. I’m sure that the new homes these wonderful little bundles go to will be delighted with the sharp little teeth and needle claws but I’ll be suffering the wounds for a while.

Going to miss these lovely pups but I hope their new owners will think of bringing them back so I can see what wonderful dogs they have grown up into.


More Smelly dogs!

Sorry, couldn’t resist but I have just spent another fascinating day with Georgie Armstrong at one of her K9 Scent Training workshops. This venue was yet another test for both dogs and owners as it was a Transport Yard and an environment the dogs would not be familiar with.

Georgie chose spots amongst huge vehicles, cargo containers and other industrial areas that were available to her. It certainly put the dogs and their handlers through their paces and by the end of the day, a hot one, everyone was looking a little tired!

From my point of view, it was another great opportunity to capture images of working scent dogs and I enjoyed every moment. Some of the images I got were funny…

and others showed just how hard the handler and dog teams were working.

All in all, another brilliant day and I can thoroughly recommend all that K9 Brain Training do to help you keep your dogs brains working and senses honed!
