Out and about day

I have had a very busy day today. Humum Kate took me and my sisters out for another fab walk.

Then I went Christmas Shopping at ‘”Go Outdoors” It was awesome in there. So much to see, like tents, bikes, clothes and shoes. The lovely staff made me very welcome with some tummy rubs.

I even got to play on a wooden slope there too.

I also got to play up at my Humum’s field today with Gem. We ran hard and fast. I love chasing her.

I also have lost some of my baby teeth now. Gem said she was very pleased about that, but I do still have one of my fangs left.

Its been a lovely out and about day.

Muddy walks and Christmas trees

Today my Humum Kate, took me and my sisters for a woodland walk. I LOVED IT. There were so many things to check out and explore. Once again every time I went back to Kate she gave me a treat.

Kate tried to take a group photo of us all, but I was just so excited for exploring I found it hard to stay still.

But I just about managed it.

Some thing really strange happened at home today too. While I was sleeping and dreaming about my fab walk, this weird tree, with lots of lights and glittery stuff on it appeared . I think the tree is called “Leave it” as that is what my Humum’s say when I go near it. I got lots of treats for sitting still near it, so I think that is what I shall do a lot of rather than try and eat it.

Another Day, Another Puppy Class

It was very misty out today and my Humum Kate took be to a different puppy class this morning, it was outside and a bit chilly. She said it would be good for me to learn in as many different places as possible.

Kate was very pleased with me, as I focused really well on her. Well she still feeds me treats when I look at her, so why wouldn’t I.😁

While we are training, well I call it playing, a horse came by, really close. I wasn’t afraid, and Kate rewarded me with more treats .

I did some great recall work and focusing around the other pups and we finished the puppy class with a noise box. I loved it and wasn’t afraid of the noise. To be fair, It was just like a big food bowl with noisy stuff in it.

I am really liking this thing called “Training”. When can we go again Kate?

My 1st day at Puppy School

Today, my Humum Kate, took me to some where she called Puppy School

Kate has done loads of training with me already, but she said she wanted to see how awesome I was training around other puppies, so we went some where other than The Canine Hub. My humum said the more places I train, the better and I would be also going to another puppy school on Sunday.

I listened really well to our teacher, Laura.

It was great, every time I looked at Kate, she gave me a treat. I was fab at doing sit, down, stands too.

I also smashed walking nicely on my lead, although there was another lovely spaniel girlie pup that I wanted to say hi to.

We finished with a really fun recall game. Laura asked me to demonstrate it.

I really liked puppy school and can’t wait to go next week.

Out and about

My Humum’s took me out to a garden centre today. They said it was to continue my education. I have no idea what they are on about, all I know is that I had a fab time. There was loads of things to explore.

I found a friend that didnt move.

There were loads of Christmas trees, I hope my Humum’s get one for home as it smelt lovely.

I then enjoyed a fuss from the ladies who work there and I gave out kisses.

I was really tired when I got home and had snuggles with Humum Kate.

I hope we go out and about again soon. ❤

Socialisation is FUN

My Humum’s have been working hard getting me to see, meet and sometimes play with other animals and people.

My Humum Kate always wants me to look at her before I am allowed to say Hi, and when I am playing, I get treats for going back to check she is OK. Some times I am not allowed to play. This is what happened when I went for training session to meet some Donkeys and Alpacas. It was ok not playing with them as I got lots of treats for staying calm around them.

I was such a good boy, I got to practise my play with Smartie, another spaniel and my recall back to check that Kate was OK.

I really like this thing called “Socialisation “

Work, Rest and Play

I have been busy over the last few days. I have played with Roxy and Gem at home and I am beginning to understand what the word “Finished” means……Well I think it means, stop jumping on Gem’s head and biting her tail.😂

I have been up to my Humum’s field and did some training on focus, impulse control and taking turns to get treats. I was very good at this game.

Today I went on a walk with Frank. Frank was the biggest dog I have ever seen. He was massive and I was a bit unsure when I first met him. I didn’t need to worry as he was very gentle and I really liked him.

I was very tired after our walk and crashed out on the sofa went I got home.

I don’t know what I like best, Work, Rest or Play. I think I like them all. ❤

The black, tan and chocolate gang

Today has been just the best day ever. My Humum Kate took me for a walk with Roxy and Gem but we also met up with Auntie Mandy and her two dogs, Millie and Oscar. They are known in the park as The Black and Tan Gang. Well now we are known as The Black, Tan and Chocolate Gang. We had such fun. Kate carried me so of the way because she said it was too far for my little legs.

I crashed out as soon as I got home.

I also made an appearance in Kate’s Facebook live. I demonstrated how to walk on a lead and some nose touches too. I was in the dog house a bit as I had a poo in the background while Kate was talking. It’s OK she did laugh about it. But when a puppy has to go, they have to go, and I needed to go 😁

Later in the afternoon I had a fab play time with Gem.

It really has been the bestest day ever.❤

Shopping v Play

Today my Humum’s needed to go shopping, so I went along for the ride. It was a bit scary with all the trollies and cars around, but Humum Kate, played lots of games with me and in the end I was fine. Lots of people wanted to say hi to me, but Kate only let me say hi to a few. Kate was so busy playing with me , she forgot to take any pictures or videos.

I have been playing with Gem, in the house today. She was very patient with me, as I jumped all over her head and then turfed her out of her bed. Gem really does like me. Roxy just stays out of the way, but I will win her over with my puppy eyes.

So shopping or playing?

Playing every day of the week. I am very tired now. Good night all zzzz

Photo time

I slept through the night again last night, which my mum’s were well pleased with. This meant I was full of beans today, so HuMum Kate took me and my sister’s down to the field for a run around. Kate is very pleased with me, so much so that every time I go back to her I get a treat.

Kate tried to take a picture of us all today at the field, but I just wanted to go back to her for another treat.

I moved first 🙂

This afternoon , at home, I got to play around with some cardboard boxes. My HuMum Kate, thinks I need to work a bit more on being confident with new and novel things. I don’t know what she is going on about. I loved the boxes.
