About Me

I enjoy walking, wildlife, and photography. I own 3 working cocker spaniels called Alfie,Keo and Harris.  This is my first experience with working cocker spaniels and i am finding them very lively and interesting little characters with lots of personality. My daughter owns Alfie's half brother Keo , the golden one.  Harris the new pup is delightful and shaping up nicely.  I hope he turns out as great as Alfie and Keo !

Lots of walks in the hills for me !  Never a dull moment !

If you ever fancy meeting for a coffee and doggy chat give me a shout. There are a number if ways to start Gundog training. Eshiels which is in Peebles is starting a beginners class soon.i appreciate that may be a distance. Central Scotland Gundog Clun CSGC will leo occasional training days. Perthshire Gunfig Rescue to occasional training days. I'll give you my email [email protected] as its easier to communicate that way. You might want to google The Gundog Club and order one of their manuals, have a look at the standards on the website to see where your dog is at. Get yourself a Gundog whistle 210.5 or 211. As long as you've got good/excellent recall you can get started with various exercises. Another forum you may find helpful ic Gundog training forum. If you fancy any help just ask. :-) Katy

If you've a rough idea when it's likely to happen time wise I'd be inclined to lead them up, I'd also consider doing it on and off throughout the walk, lead and release in a different order all the time. It's probably a wee bit of the dog being a prat/getting overexcited?and trying it on. I'll not take any offence if you ignore my suggestions. Hopefully you'll get it resolved quickly. Do your dogs work at all at any discipline? I'm in sunny LOL Clydebank - small world!! Good luck sorting your issue! Katy

Do you do same walk all time? Try altering it so neither dog knows where end is. Are they off lead at all during walk? Whereabouts in Glasgow are you..............it's alright I'm not a stalker just wondered if you were close by.
What line are your WCS from?

It might be worth your while asking about this on the forum as there are some behaviourists and trainers who may be able to give advice. I'll say what I'd think about re your situation: when does it happen, is there a common denominator, how long does it last, does the young one take his telling off/is he doing anything untoward in doggy terms? Without knowing the cause/ferocity it's hard to give you advice. I'd try observing their behaviour and if escalating offer a distraction to the dogs to break it up. Hope it's some help to you. Katy

I would love 3! I already have their names chosen but my OH is not having it! I don't think my lap is big enough, as I have a cocker spaniel and a laptop on my knee! We have lots of beaches to choose from here but Hugh prefers the woods and mountains. We're off on holiday again soon so I'll be sure to post photos.

I thought you were based in Scotland by your photos! We're Buckie, Moray. Hugh is our first experience of WCS, chosen for their lively personality, affectionate nature and stamina for the mountains and he hasn't disappointed! He's only 10 months and we've been building up to the big hills - not long to go.

Thanks Audrey, Keep up the good work. The only thing I might mention is that the colour boost in pic appears quite high in the foreground green and in the colour of the dogs coat. I don't know how picky you are with these things? Forgive me. To my eye this is a great cover shot as it stands, but if I were putting it on my wall. I'd tone them down a little so they are more life-like. Fab work.

Hi Audrey, thanks for your kind words. My 2 eldest children are 22 and 20 and the death of the family pet for the last 10 years does seem like the end of an era. Still, you just can't be sad with a working cocker around and Tess is a great comfort. I am also having fun looking at all the puppy websites and planning a companion for her.

Thank you...she is lovely!!

My OH & I have been doing lots of research into the dog which would best suit us and the Cocker seems ideal. We wanted a dog with a fun and lively personality who would also be a loving, loyal family pet.

I am already on a few breeders waiting lists - watch this space :)
