i was walking my 2 at heel on left holding harrys hand on right – felt so smug when lady with cocker spaniel came along pulling like a train 🙂

I was practising recalls with my two, both sitting watching me when a woman with a greyhound came past. She let the greyhound pester my two, it was trying to shove it’s nose up Tam’s bum and taking a chance by getting right in Willow’s face ::) In the end they moved off the spot and she just smiled :-XAugust 5, 2008 at 8:26 pm #67962SuzAndTheDivaMember
Umm lots of people stop to talk to Honey, she will ignore generally unless told to go say hello – even then she will do the whole waggy bum hello then when they bent right over hand out to stroke her……………she walk right off >:D person generally let feeling rather silly!August 5, 2008 at 8:45 pm #67963*Nat*Member

i had something like this the other day
this rough collie desperatlly wanted to sniff Oban and he just wouldnt stand still – hes totally indiffrent to other dogs hes usually so into what ever he is doing he doesnt even notice – but this rough really got on his nerves and he ended up telling it to f**k off.August 15, 2008 at 10:59 am #67965AnonymousGuest
Cass wore her new coat for the first time today & we’ve just been down the high street doing loads on heelwork & obedience, recall etc & even with it written on the dog in plain English we still got followed up the road by some woman distracting us wanting to know what i was training ‘HIM’ for! I give up, i really do give up.
Perhaps i should have said i was training her to bite people who ask stupid fucking questions. roflol Mind you for the best part it did seem to work very well because we were given a wide berth by everyone else. ;D

Bev i got it from
they make high visibility clothing for security services, roadworks, schools, horses etc & they do the dog coat custom made – the vest itself is about £12 & you just add the extras like the reflective strip & writing – they’ll print your own notice on it (within reason).
I was going to have it say ‘Working do not distract’ but then i thought the word ‘Working’ might be misleading because she’s not a working dog & it would make people even more likely to stop us to ask what Cass does for her beer money. LOL
Well it definitely seems to be having the desired effect & was well worth the money to me. People are giving us more space on the high street and they are not (apart from one exception) distracting us. ;DAugust 15, 2008 at 3:16 pm #67970AnonymousGuest
Cass is in ‘Buggering about mode’ at the moment so if i put the coat on she’ll just yank it off – i’ll try and get a photo the weekend.August 15, 2008 at 3:22 pm #67971*Nat*Member
