I had the pleasure of walking Hooch Sunday and again today. Hooch is becoming quite the grown up boy now. He was well behaved on both of his walks. Hooch loves the sights, smells and sounds of the woods. Further afield he continues to investigate the new smells along the way, never pulling. Passing other walkers out with their dogs doesn't phase Hooch in the slightest, he calmly walks by without any fuss. Hooch enjoys having a good roll in the grass. Gorgeous boy love4.gif xx

Hooch was fab on Friday, we enjoyed a lovely walk with him :D

He’s getting cheeky on his return, the sun was out so Hooch decided sunbathing was better than going back to his kennel ! Real sweetie enjoyed tummy tickles from myself, Charlie and Clare at the kennels - he loved it thumbs.gif

Started taking Hooch into one of the small paddocks after work to get a run around. He loves interacting with the dog in the other paddock and run drills along the fence.
Often very cheeky to get back in, running away but once caught has a cuddle and goes back in.
At first he’d have moments of over excitement but found squirting alittle water on him from a bottle discourages it and now he rarely does his leapy grabby show, if he does I just show him the water bottle and give him a ‘behave’ look!
He’s such a lovely darling boy, so pleased he’s learning to control his energy and enjoy his time out of kennels.

I walked Hooch Pooch for the first time with Ros, what a handsome boy, and very friendly. We had a lovely walk, being so young Hooch is very alert to his surroundings, and always on the lookout for wildlife :smiley-dance017.gif: He was not not impressed to be going back to his kennel, thankfully Ros was on hand to take him back. :smiley-bounce016.gi:

We had our usual Sunday walk with Hoochie boy today.

He really is a very good boy on his walks. He LOVES to explore the world with his nose. He sniffs everything and we like to indulge him and stop quite often for him as he gets such pleasure from the smells away from kennels.

He is also very good and relaxed these days when it comes to getting affection and cuddles. He loves to roll over and show his belly ready for rubs. We call it ‘tummy time’.

Today we passed a family with two young boys. The approximately six year old boy asked if he could stroke our dog. We know Hooch well enough these days to know that he can receive some affection without becoming completely over excited or over stimulated like he would have when he arrived with us. Or becoming too ‘curious’ with his mouth.

He did us proud. He calmly accepted the strokes from the boys and then did his usual roll over and declared it was tummy time! So it was then belly rubs too.

We decided to quit while we were ahead and before he got excited, but there was no indication he would. He really is maturing a lot with us.

I should also add (keep forgetting to post) that he was good as gold on our charity walk with all the other kennel dogs out too.

Hooch does get a bit fizzy sometimes and over excited, so he isn’t the perfect article yet, but credit where it’s due:
- He is beautifully calm on walks
- He is bullet proof with other dogs (including those off lead), he isn’t that fussed about them and carries on with his business
- He is good with people and confidently meets strangers and takes affection sensibly.

He really is coming along well. I am super proud of him.
Well done my boy!

Today may have been mine and Hooch’s last paddock time after work as the clock change this weekend.
He’s so good now, always wants a cuddle, often stretching to lightly stand stand up against me for a cuddle.
Great to see him get the chance to hooly round before dinner and bed.
Hooch seems to have grown out of his juvenile naughty behaviour and it’s a lovely little gent.
