Dylan gets dropped!

Back at puppy class after a weeks break and Dylan was raring to go. Watch out world! After all it's only ten days until the Bronze Good Citizen test. Or is it? Boo was missing tonight - seems she's has started her second season and will miss the test. But Mollie the Cavapoo was back … Continue reading Dylan gets dropped!

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!

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!

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!

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. We were on our way to glory and moving up to the next stage of puppy class to join Dylan's other friends, Eddie the cockerpoo and Martha the miniature Schnauzer, … Continue reading It was all going so well…

And the award goes to….

Something very strange happened this week at puppy class. Dylan as usual couldn’t wait to get there and did a “poor me I am going to play puppy victim” crying in the the car  as we had arrived too early and had to wait it out. Honestly listening to her, anyone would think I put … Continue reading And the award goes to….

Treat ‘em mean, keep ‘em keen!

Aha! The mystery of missing in action Martha the Schnauzer and Eddie the cockerpoo was solved tonight. Much to Dylan’s disgust - and yes it was written all over her face - it was revealed that both her former partners in crime have been moved to the super advanced puppy class. A class that Dyls … Continue reading Treat ‘em mean, keep ‘em keen!

Snow, a BIG surprise and Shiraz! Oh and we find a leading man!

Tonight something surprising happened at puppy class. Nope put away the champagne in anticipation that Dylan, for once, behaved. Those corks can stay corked! We did think class could be cancelled as there’s been snow - and in the soft southern part of the UK - that usually puts a stop to everything. But puppy … Continue reading Snow, a BIG surprise and Shiraz! Oh and we find a leading man!

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!

Oh no! It’s puppy gate!

So Dylan is officially the naughtiest in the class. We have a German shepherd, a spaniel, a cockerpoo, a cavapoo plus of course...Dylan the Welshie. Tonight Dylan slid across the parquet floor again on her arse...trainer told me I wasn’t being firm enough when Dyls wouldn’t do down ...tried to show me how to do … Continue reading Oh no! It’s puppy gate!
