For the last 6 weeks I've actually been babysitting the family collies for the summer. It's been great having them and I'm sure I'm going to miss them when they leave. I also feel like I know them a lot more, their individual personalities. We've also been trying to train them to walk on the lead better. They have improved loads, they used to pull all the time and it was quite tiring. They aren't as bad now and Megan is usually no problem at all on her own and they both listen to you more...unless they have a ball.
Both are really good off the lead, they never go too far and always come back if you call. The only reason I'd be cautious letting them off the lead is because unfortunately, the two aren't that socialised and often bark at other dogs. Rather then walking them along the canal I'll walk them along an old rail track, much quieter. It's very beautiful at the moment, hedges are thick and loads of wild flowers. I've also seen so many butterflies and bees along there.
My blog is for updates and a little behind the scenes info on my current projects and activities.
