Another fun blog post this week. Capturing ‘ a day in the life’
At the moment, a daily routine with Spud consists of getting him used to lots of different things and training.
We usually start the day on average at 6/7am, sometimes earlier. He has his breakfast, and after he’s finished goes back to sleep until Bailey comes down.
The day before I had taken these photos we did our first off lead walking and had puppy socialisation in the evening, so lots for him to take in. Knowing he doesn’t go too crazy off lead I let him ‘off ‘as soon as it was safe (I have a long line trailing behind just in case on the cycle track but in fields he’s completely free as I know he’s ok)
The track is a great place for him to meet new dogs and people and he was introduced to two 18month Boxers who were bigger than he expected but he handled it really well after initially trying to hide. I’m always appreciative of people stopping to talk to him, with or without dogs.
Next I went to do some recall training, and a few ‘leave it’s’. He’s doing really well and even found a tennis ball, so win – win for him!
One thing he didn’t expect was the noise Geese make.. A tractor had crossed the river and sent two Geese who were resting flying. I thought they were going to come and get us, and I think Spud did too!
Once home, he had a rest and time for lunch. Another great opportunity for training as he is learning to wait after his bowl is placed.
My niece was here so I expected him to be hyped up, but he was good and took himself off to sleep when he wanted to. Afternoons I make sure he gets as much sleep as he can if he’s had a busy morning, and if needed, we play games or learn tricks in the evening to keep his mind busy.
After that it’s bed time for a well deserved proper sleep!
Next up we have Little White Dog Pet Photography – Sioux Falls, SD
