Growing up...

Fly is now 7.5months old, how time has flown!

She's still a mischievous little madam at home, into everything and not scared of anything. She always wants to be with you, doing what you're doing and poking her nose where it doesn't belong. It's also not unusual to find her playing with Jet or Chip...or should I say, wrestling to the death!

Training wise she's doing really well with the clicker and has quite a little repertoire of tricks now, the thing that I need to work on a lot is to get her doing things at a distance as she's very clingy at the moment...but we're getting there.

This week she started foundation agility classes officially, obviously nothing on the equipment but lots of running to toys and wait training etc. On the whole she was very good but we do get distracted by a certain vizsla puppy, she's just too much fun apparently! I won't be around on a Tuesday evening until Christmas now, so I'm not sure what she's going to do.... I will do foundation for both sports at the weekend and will try and find her some private lessons maybe next year, but for now we're just enjoying her being a pup!

Here are some new photos of my very gorgeous girly, thanks to Leanne:

Hydrotherapy and a busy week...

I will put a bit more about Fly and Jet's week on Jet's blog, but she's been one busy puppy! Along with the longest walk she's ever been on in her life (with her best friend Diva!), she also went to hydrotherapy for the first time!

Jet used to go on a regular basis a few winters back, and I wanted to get her into it again as it really helped her fitness levels. I thought little Fly puppy couldn't miss out and she came along to do some too; a little non-weightbearing exercise can't do her any harm. She did 5minutes and was totally unphased, she was a surprisingly strong swimmer.
