Willow passed her first 6 week course of "Puppy new recruits" gundog training. (YAY!)

The course runs for dogs 6 months- 1year old. We practiced heel work on lead and off lead, recall with distractions, sit/stay, good puppy manners around people and dogs, we also started recall to a whistle and touched on retrieving.

Here are some photographs courtesy of www.riverlilyworkingdogs.co.uk

Enjoying the very cold and damp weather


Willow looking very grown; up where did my puppy go?


Going out for a retrieve


Group shot after our assesment


You may even notice in the last photo...I have been out and bought a green coat!!!!! (My whistle is dayglow pink to even it out and the flowery wellies are here to stay)

I really cant begin to say how positive our experience has been, Abbi and Jon are wonderful trainers and really paitent (particually with little Miss too-much-energy-for-her-own-good-and-likes-to-do-an-impression-of-a-kangaroo)

We cant wait to start puppy cadets in a few weeks.

Green jacket - you yuppy sell out!!!

In going for a retrieve you can see in Willows face and body language she is loving it
Well done
Quite jealous I never followed up my missus wishes to take Judy GDT when she was a pup

Keep up the good work

Brill. Well done. We start this weekend with Willoughby. At twenty months he is a late starter so I have no idea what he will make of it.
I borrowed some green wellies but will have to make do with my usual dog walking gear which is a mixture of what keeps me warm and dry.

You are both doing brilliantly Claire and it is great that you enjoy it so much. Dis guest trainer days are fantastic and a real learning experience for us all. Make sure you get booked on if you can.
