I’ve had such a good weekend with Billypup.

Yesterday 3 miles off lead 100% recall with distractions such as horses, mountain bikes, other dogs and the dreaded squirrels. This is a massive achievement as 2 months ago she decided recall didn’t apply to her. I came on here for advice at the time.

Today she learnt how to score a goal by putting her ball through a hoop (useful life skill)

Aces! Runpups recall has just returned. A few weeks ago I could have sworn she was deaf.

She had a funny couple hours earlier as had eaten a box of cheese twists. But thankfully now has crashed.

Bless her, returned recall is such a relief isn’t it?

Hope she’s ok after her cheese straws

We learnt roll over the other day, ferret pup now has two useless tricks (shake and roll over - i guess shake could be useful if the vet needed to examine his paws?!)

Ferretpup was very pleased with himself and lots of wagging.

You're not allowed to post about puppies unless you put up photos. It's my the MN law.

You’re absolutely right,smile billypup will be 1 next month so I probably need to start calling her billydog. It’s so lovely to start to see her really respond now

Shake is really useful when they get the lead in a pickle. Well done ferretpup

adalinedog is 11 months and we've been practising recall lately. The last few days it's been 100% perfect - he has recalled around dogs, people, a horse, birds and a stinky dead fish!

I read that as adrenaline pup grin one for the agility ring? He did really well to leave the stinky dead fish, this comes from the author of the stinky sheep skeleton thread!!! We were less good that day.

And ferret pup is beautiful - is she border collie?

Oh he doesn't normally recall - he normally eats it, rolls in it or both hmm

ferretface Mon 14-Jan-19 14:24:16

Yep border collie grin

Well done adalinedog!

Thank you. Much better grin. I had to give my puppy to my DSIS because I'm not well so any pup pics are a bonus
