Unfortunately Annie couldn’t make it due to the weather.
We did some tracking training and introduced the dogs to person searching. Person searching is where the dog is sent to search for criminals or vulnerable missing persons and the dog will bark to notify the handler that he has found someone. This is introduced with the dog on a lead chasing the person ie the helper and the dog barks on reaching the helper and is rewarded with a toy.
Pictured above is Puppy walker Paul and his dog Arry looking very mature and impressive for a dog not quite 7 months old in the early stages of person searching.
We then held a fun competition on an indoor agility course incorporating various obstacles and ramps with penalties for missing obstacles or not completing them properly. It was a joint tie between Argo and Arry who both completed the course with no penalty points.
I received a text from Angie on Christmas day to say the diamond had duly arrived in his latest Poo. For the full story visit the BBC news Dog swallows £18,000 wedding ring.
Xmas at our house with the B litter was hectic mainly because of the atrocious weather meant we couldn’t get them outside and had to give them the run of the house to give them something to do.
