  • Dogs fighting . . . friend or show?

    The longer we keep dogs, the more we realise how little we know about them. Especially their behaviour. If you keep a number of dogs together, there will inevitably be the odd disagreement but where possible, we try to remain calm and allow the dogs to sort out their pack hierarchy by themselves. We’ve learned […]

  • Sometimes you notice something special!

    When it comes to toys for dogs and sheepdog puppies, we’re convinced that soft plastic flower pots are the best (certainly for value) but a toy monkey can be great fun too! Mel’s pup Ezra (left) feels the cloth monkey is his, but Gwen’s offspring Imogen, Toad and Headingley are convinced he’s mistaken. Allowing puppies […]

Of course, how you train a dog is very important but there are things that you can’t really train for; things that money can’t buy either.

  • News Roundup – Puppies, DVDs and Training Courses

    Puppies everywhere!Mel’s pups are having a wonderful time now. They’re into absolutely everything and making lots of noise.

  • Puppies Playtime

    Mel’s puppies are now spending their days outside on the lawn – weather permitting. It’s hard to believe they’ll be five weeks old tomorrow! Mel’s beginning to weary of their demands (until there’s puppy food around) and spends much of her time on her bench above the puppies’ bedroom, well out of the way We’ve […]

  • At last – the Spring weather tempts us to linger outside!

    The last couple of weeks of dry weather have been a welcome relief after an unremittingly wet February. Of course, after spending the early part of the year worrying about wet ground and losing our grazing in a sea of mud, we’re now worried that the dry spell has stunted the grass growth!
