    Kennel Club Working Gundog Certificate on Game

    Congratulations to Bramble, and of course my lovely wife. Bramble has come home exhausted (2nd shoot in a week don't you know!) and OH is obviously shattered. To the point that I wonder who had to run and collect the birds:rofl: - but seriously - I am SO proud. Bramble - WGCD and WGCG -...

    Otter's Journey....

    Well, I'm not a snitch but... Stoli is Bensons kitten. Having been trained himself, Benson assured us, (As only dogs can), he knew how to educate the young cat. It hasn't gone quite to plan, and we now just have another miscreant on our hands!:facepalm:

    30 days of Canine Science

    I'm a little behind on my updates - but Day 2 was Low arousal luring. Well - I was worried. The principle (I think) of low arousal lurig is to establish S.....L...O...W steady movements, with the lure JUST above the victim (Sorry - trainee dog) nose. Why was I worried. Labradors. Obviously...

    30 days of Canine Science

    So - day 1 was 'down', 'drop down' and 'fold down'. As alluded to by my lovely wife @Beanwood I did have some challenges..... 'Down' was a given as "You're all trainers, so will be using this in your classes already.". :sweat::run: So - let's try this out. Subject A: Bramble is brilliant at...

    30 days of Canine Science

    Well - I signed up for it! Fanbois on the FB page aside - it's day 1, and has the potential to be quite interesting. I've yet to see a demonstration of the science, but it's certainly watchable.

    Otter's Journey....

    Otter's Journey....

    Saturday 10th August - Day 11 Post Op OK, so today's the day - from 05:45 @Beanwood is away for 36 hours and has left ME in charge!! No worry It's ONLY a 4 month old puppy (That's been on crate rest following surgery for the last 11 days), and three lovely labs. How hard can it be? Oh my...

    Harley’s health journey

    I'm sorry to hear Harley isn't on top form. Hopefully she'll make some improvements with the treatment you're helping her with. BTW, I'm sure the definition of Catastrophe in Wikipedia would involve Benson after he's been left alone for 5 minutes!! :tail::dug::cwl:

    Otter's Journey....

    So, when we asked him (Andy Moore) how many he'd done - zero, OK - how about seen - still zero. But it's OK , because he knows the (Italian) guy who wrote up the paper on the procedure, and he speaks quite good English... Er - OK so is this experimental? He pondered that one for a second, and...

    Otter's Journey....

    I can cover the 'angles' if anyone is interested :wink: In summary the slope of the Tibial Plateau is currently (Usually) 20 degrees. By inserting a screw through the higher end of the growth plate (At the front) and thereby stopping the 'height' of the front increasing, the rear part will grow...

    Otter's Puppy Log

    Love her as much as I do - this is NOT happening :headbang: We already have a King Size - and with clever old Benson, we BOTH end up sleeping right on the edge. It's a 6 foot bed I'm going for next.

    Paws Trading

    I'm not sure you lot are a good influence on @Beanwood, who also appears to be able to spend what little money I have just how SHE likes...:facepalm:

    A bit of fun!

    Actually I originally said 'Dangerous when cornered' (Nobody messes with my wife!!). The real problem - there are SO MANY warnings that are applicable to @Beanwood !! ......:)
