This is the time of year when people will be sending their dogs off to be trained up by the professionals, if they haven't done so already, for the start of the shooting season. They do this mainly to resolve issues they have not been able to put right and/or to give their dogs plenty of opportunity to be shoot over as here in south
we do not have the ground or abundance of rabbits that are up north.
I'm meaner to the professionals I know as they have to put up with me :) For while boarding your dogs with a professional, to then get it back now doing all that you ask off it is great for some, for us it would not be so. Jay Jay is our sweetheart and we could never send her away. Plus I feel, for me, the joy is in the partnership I have with our dogs and the achievements we make together
So to hand her over to a professionals would be like cheating on a test and us.
So after our session yesterday with Jay Jay in the field to see what she was like after her few weeks off, we formed a plan of action for her. ....
....The main one being that we will hopefully give her the shooting season she was meant to have last year. A full shooting season (fingers crossed) will give Jay Jay the experience she needs and has yet had because of the barb wire incident she had not long into last year shooting season.We are also going to do some days with a group of people on a friends farm, more in a trialling style than shooting on those days, which will be great and something we will look forward to as the person who owns the place is a wonderful host and friend, plus Gary gets to shoot, bliss.
These days will be a total gem for Jay Jay and I as with me not being a driver the opportunity for Jay Jay to be shoot over are not enough.
We are also hoping to do a fortnightly training session with other people we know, one being an excellent trainer and another being a fab cake maker :)
Then in February we will round it off with a trip up to David Lisett, date yet to be confirmed but Davey has promised to fit us in for our two days with him in Feb, and I will hold it him to it :) DL's input will be much wanted as the pups will be the right age for assessing, and gaining his opinion on what to do with them will be invaluable
So with all that planned I had better get her training underway which will be reviewing the basics and building her confidence, getting her in a calmer state of mind as she is always waiting with heighten anticipation of what is next to come, so much so her brain can't take in the information I'm giving her because she is 6 paces ahead in her mind :)
My task to aid all this,
To get fit, enjoy and to not Panic, 'Don't Panic' he he he

The puppies are thriving and playing well outside with not one blink to the sounds of the outside world.
Jay Jay and the grandparents have sniffed and said hello through the puppy pen fence and soon they will all be able to play with one another. Well, as soon as the young pups are old enough to take the rough and tumble of the adults running away from their sharp puppy teeth.
They have had more visitors, one being Nicky who came over today and played with them whilst trying to the brave their bites and now very sharp teeth :)
We have also started to grate train them, which they make easy as they love falling asleep in their play boxes.
We escaped yesterday for a short while to Tonbridge, to do some training with Chris Burns of Breezeleaf Kennels, A fabulous chap and a good trainer.
We went to shoot ground and trained in pairs as if it was a test, and with Chris, Karl and Gary there, and Sarah with her dog working along side, it was a very good session. You cannot put a value to finding good people to train with and to do so in a small group is such a benefit for dog and handler
