30 life lessons by 30.

Well my birthday is Monday, at I’m the big three zero. I feel like I’m hit with a life lesson every week at the moment. 1. Life will keep surprising you: it seems like life will never be predictable. Whether it’s something bad lurking around the corner or something spectacular ready to jump out at... Continue Reading →

5 months old: trains, training and treats

Hazard has had a really busy week as always! She traveled on public transport, she recalled from ducks while off leash and visited lots of new locations. We are still doing training in short bursts and focusing on recall; which is great at the moment but we want to keep it that way! Practice makes... Continue Reading →

Our girl Hazard

I can’t believe she is 14 weeks old! It’s madness. She is growing so fast. She seems to get bigger everyday, she already needs a new harness! She can jump on the sofa now without any help (and makes the most of it). And is even faster at running up the stairs! She is very... Continue Reading →

My swimming was a little bit rubbish, lots of splashing, huffing and... Continue Reading →

Dog training? It’s all fun and games.

We have recently completed a few new training courses with Watercombe dogs and have just started a regular training class with them. It’s turned my training priorities completely upside down! Duke has absolutely loved it! And I have too. The training is all game based. You use games and fun to teach you dog to... Continue Reading →

The old Bucket list.

The “new” Bucket list is getting longer and longer. I have been crossing things off and adding more on. Everything I cross off, every new experience, leads me to find more things to add and more things to try. I started the list in 2017 and it’s brought me a lot of joy. It’s forced...
