Well it's been a while since my last puppy diary. At long last I'm now in my new job which means pup training is no longer just for the early morning and late evening. So I've been over the past few weeks almost back to basics with her on some areas. Trying to improve her heel and calm her down a hit when we're out and about. That's done nicely, so today I set about laying a good track for her.
I admit we're a bit behind on this. One thing and another just meant we couldn't spend as much
I've just come back from visiting my parents who have moved back to the family's ancestral hometown in Yorkshire (I'm very jealous!) I managed to take the pup out to a lot of new environments and she even found her first pheasant. I also had fun in Dalby Forest boring the wife with stops every few minutes to look for slots where paths and rides intersect. I managed almost by accident to spot a couple of roe a long way off through my binoculars, but they didn't hang around in the open

I haven't done a puppy diary for a while now, so this is just a quick update really. We're at the stage now where it's mostly just building on things already learnt, she's still too young for anything advanced and although she's mastering the basics well I'd like to get this stuff nailed before moving on.
So, it's been more of the same. Now that she's big enough for a walk down to the local playing fields I've been taking her down there a few times a week (nice early starts
