So for the first time since I've had her, Tia played with another dog! We have bumped into the owner a few times who walks two on-lead Ambull/Mastiff/Bulldog mixes and two off-lead French Bulldogs who are very friendly - and walking across the field with him talking about dogs, Tia decided to play with one of the Frenchies! Bounding around, chasing each other (as much as her lead would allow them to at least), lots of play-bows and tail wagging - it was really lovely to see! I had been curious if she would be playful with other dogs given the opportunity as she is so playful with me and the answer is obviously "yes!" (when they are trying to play with her)

Also wanted to say that my cousin came to visit - due to horrendous weather we had to introduce them to one another in the hallway rather than go for a walk first but with some food and strokes Tia was quickly climbing all over Jonia trying to kiss her and play. She stayed for a few days with no issues whatsoever. Jonia is dog-savvy having been around dogs all her life and I think Tia picked up on this right away as they got along like a house on fire :D Jonia also thought I should say that Tia has the softest belly she's ever stroked !!

Loving having a friend either side of her in the pub

In the next few days I'll do another short video of her to show all the tricks she has learned (she's so clever!!!) love4.gif

I had a lovely walk with Tia this morning. Mostly I let Tia choose where to go and it was great to see her striding out confidently in front making decisions as to where to go. Her growing confidence has allowed me to see a little stubbornness too. A couple of times I had to ask Tia to go a different way to one she chose and while she did communicate her protest, with a little encouragement she was soon following me again. She passed several men moving wheelie bins and kids on bikes with no problem at all. She was also happy to accept some fuss from a male admirer back at the kennels. Good girl Tia. xx

I met Tia for the first time today and I wasn’t sure what to expect as from reading her thread I could see she might be a bit nervous or reluctant to go out.

I started off sitting on the floor and giving her a couple of sausages and strokes under the chin. She was happy to have her harness and leads put on and off we went.

We went off up round the woods and she walked well on the lead, she occasionally looked back at me but was happy to go on.

We had a lovely walk I was so pleased she looked liked she was enjoying it, I have made a new friend. love4.gif

Another lovely walk with Tia yesterday. She really does relax out on our walks and is delightful company.

I had another lovely chilled out walk with Tia this morning. A couple of times we disagreed on which way to go, sometimes Tia won, sometimes me. Bless her, she only wants to extend her walk and be out for longer and who can blame her.
Here she is having a little protest because she didn't want to go back. love4.gif With gentle persuasion she was soon up and trotting along by my side again.

Tia was a super star this morning sharing her walk with new girl, Luna. Tia as always was beautifully behaved, communicating politely with little Luna. Tia is always much more confident with a canine companion by her side.

As promised, here is a video of Tia showing off all her tricks! She is a really quick learner and responded very well to clicker training. You can see in the video how happy these training sessions made her (look at that tail!!).
You can also see how hard she concentrates when giving paw - the trick she found hardest to grasp - she has that really strong stare on, looking for my instruction, keen for the click/reward, and mostly even stops wagging her tail to pay better attention!
Watch to the final video for some very cute ears and a soppy expression love4.gif

Tia made another new friend today, the handsome Billy. In the first video we pass a group of people and you can see Tia's nerves kick in but she waits calmly while they pass. If she is walking with another dog she likes to stay close to them and will always check where they are if they get behind, then she will wait for them to catch up.

Gorgeous Tia has come home with me for an overnight stay, she’s such a babe, Tia has stayed with me before and straight away knew where she was love4.gif

Travelled wonderfully on the way home from the kennels, keen to get in the front door ! Good girl, straight outside for wee-wees, Tia’s house training is amazing, she is perfect :D

Then it was dinner time, Tia hasn’t understood why she’d not got her dinner at the kennels but I think she’s happy now, happy for a late dinner in return for home life, Tia LOVES home life, the change in her is instant the moment she’s away from the kennels, kennels make Tia sad, home life makes Tia very happy woo.gif]
Her tail hasn’t stopped wagging and she has wanted cuddles galore :smiley-gen132.gif: bighug.gif

Some zoomies too, first on and off the sofa and then around the garden !!! She’s been so excited to be here bless xxx
