The neglected quartet brothers Elvis, Duke and Gizzy and our German import Qwendi finally get together for their first training session

Since I collected Qwendi from Germany several months ago she has been with me and so she has been getting plenty of training and attention.
However poor old Elvis, Duke and Gizzy have been neglected by me as I have been raising Rubies litter at home and also running the Initial Police dog course. Add to that I have been training Argo on the course and so it was nice to get the brothers and Qwendi together on Sunday 30th November to see how they were all doing.

We met at HQ and we are pictured here getting all the dogs acquainted with each other at the start of our day.

We then made our way up to Exeter City Centre to see how they coped with all the crowds and general mayhem in the build up to Xmas.

They were all excellent and a great example of what good character should be in German Shepherds. You probably know from my blogs how much I love to see good character in the German shepherd.  Regardless of whether our dogs become Police dogs we like our dogs to have a  good character because a dog with good character provided that he/she is given training and guidance is a joy to own and is very much part of the family.

The above picture shows Elvis keen to introduce himself to a Pigeon.
The above shows what a hit the pups are with the public.

After a whistle stop tour of the city centre it was back to my place for the puppy walkers to meet Rubies new pups the C litter.

Then it was on again to Saundercroft farm to see how the pups got on meeting all the farm animals.
We all had a great time at the farm and I would once again like to thank Andi Darby and her mum Jean for making us welcome. Also Thanks to Steve who helped with the photographs and we wish him luck in his quest to become a dog handler.

Here are some pictures of our day on the farm.
Bye for now Paul
