Last week, Dyls and I reached a crossroads. Did we carry on with puppy class, after being dropped yet again from the Good Citizen Bronze, or did we raise the white flag and give up? Well we decided to carry on as Dylan loves her weekly social gathering - she is after all the most … Continue reading Well that proved ‘em wrong!
The cats made me do it!
I think aliens have abducted Dylan and replaced her with a puppy that looks exactly like her, but is willing, obedient and follows all commands - well almost all. That can be the only explanation for tonight's puppy class. Because Dylan nailed it! And I think it's because I made a mistake on the treat … Continue reading The cats made me do it!
It was all going so well…
Last week Dylan was named puppy of the night- it seemed that nine weeks of tantrums and trials were finally a thing of the past.

Dylan was beyond excited going into puppy class - after all she’s had a week to work out how to … Continue reading Time for a real drink!
Seemed like a good plan!
This week I came up with a cunning plan in readiness for tonight's puppy class. I took Dylan for a walk later than usual, and went confidently to class with a chilled out Welshie trotting sedately beside me. Yay, Dylan's excess energy all burnt off, this will be a good night! Yep took all of … Continue reading Seemed like a good plan!
A Welshie, a Collie, a Cockerpoo and a large gin!
Things we learnt at puppy class tonight.... never underestimate a Welshie! Tonight a show judge was at puppy class with her 6month old collie who was the most trained and well behaved puppy I think I have ever seen! So we line up for the first exercise - sit stay - Dylan and I end … Continue reading A Welshie, a Collie, a Cockerpoo and a large gin!
