I think we’ve broken her!

After tonight, I think our poor trainer has finally admitted defeat! And strangely it wasn't just down to Dylan- though of course, the little monster did pull quite a few moves out of the bag! Literally! Following last week when we were told Dylan wasn't ready to take her Bronze Good Citizen, the trainer had … Continue reading I think we’ve broken her!

Dylan’s revenge!

Dyls was up for it tonight. We went for long walk in the woods in the afternoon and worked on our strategy. Me: Dyls it's not long to the Good Citizen exam, we have to step up our game. Dyls: Yeah whatever, ooh is that a squirrel. I could have that! OK, maybe I was … Continue reading Dylan’s revenge!

Oh sss…sausages!

We've been practising. After last weeks news that we have been entered for our Bronze Good Citizen award, Dyls and I are on a mission. So it was with determined optimism we went into puppy class. Dylan as usual had to do her meet and greet with everyone. Not just the pupsters in her class, … Continue reading Oh sss…sausages!

It’s getting serious!

Puppy class took a serious turn in more ways than one tonight. So as usual Dyls bounced into class. Lots of playing and jumping with Boo. She even decided to spare the time to play with Boycie the feisty pug. Her latest crush Aslan the Leonburger is in holiday, but undeterred Dyls turned her attention … Continue reading It’s getting serious!

Normal service is resumed!

And so we are back at puppy class. After almost ten weeks relaxing in France, it was time to get back to business and for Dyls to start the journey towards the Good Citizen Bronze award. Ok stop laughing at the back, and the front and sides - let's try and be positive! I spoke … Continue reading Normal service is resumed!

France has been hit by storm Dylan!

So it's been nearly three weeks since I took Dylan out of school (aka puppy class) early and we headed to France for the summer. And what a few weeks it's been! Thanks to her Welshie cousins, Harley and Wiglet, Dyls is getting quite an education - a bit like a French finishing school in … Continue reading France has been hit by storm Dylan!

Going out with a bang!

Maybe Dylan knew it was our last puppy class for a while because, like a veteran performer doing a farewell gig, Dylan decided to replay all her greatest hits tonight! As usual Dylan did a meet and greet round the room and we settled down with the cavapoos Molly and Boo. Well, not exactly settled, … Continue reading Going out with a bang!

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!

Oh no, not the ferret!

Well it was a fun night again at puppy class - but at least I didn't end up in the broom cupboard - result! The trainer met us at the door. Instead of the mad fur blur stampede into class - usually led by Dylan (no surprise there)- we had to line up, our puppies … Continue reading Oh no, not the ferret!

And we are back… in the broom cupboard!

And so after six long weeks we were back. The return to puppy class... and the irony wasn’t lost on me that it also happened to be Dylan Thomas day - the writer that Dyls is named after. It might have been Mr Thomas’s day - but the night belonged to Dylan. So we arrived, … Continue reading And we are back… in the broom cupboard!
