We start Tuesday morning with an update on Scooter pup
Scooter is doing really well. He is excelling in his puppy foundation class and showing all the other puppies how it’s done. Having got used to the speed that collies learn, I was concerned that it might be hard to train a bedlington. He has proved me wrong and is probably better behaved than the collies. I have to remind myself that he is only 5 months old sometimes. The swimming lessons are paying off as today he has been paddling in the sea and occasionally going just deep enough for all feet to be off the ground, all by himself. Scooter has also discovered gardening! He was very pleased with himself this weekend. Having dug up the 3 dwarf green bean plants and given them a good chew, he brought one in to show me.
I know there are a few bedlingtons in Sussex. It is such a rare treat to bump into one. I really wish they were easier to find so that I could arrange to meet up. I can see why many of you have more than one bedlington. They are fantastic to watch together.
Thanks Sarah, great to hear Scooter is doing so well, and at last is getting used to the water. Bedlingtons are really quick to learn but they switch off very easily. You will find that they get bored with repetitive training, unfortunately they are not as focused as the collies, competing in agility with a bedlington is much more of a challenge.
