Met up with Marley again on Saturday and we went for a nice walk in the afternoon sun - We met a couple of ladies out hiking and they sooned joined the Marley fan club - within minutes of meeting them he was having his tummy tickled :)

I got to walk the gorgeous Marley today. He is such a handsome fellow with a good dollop of cute too. Every time I see him I just think wow! So as you could guess I am quite a Marley fan. We had a lovely walk but the best bit was sitting down in the shade at the midway point. Marley showed me the staffy-stretch (photo below!) and then came to me for cuddles and wriggles and treats. Marley seemed so much calmer than previous times I have walked him. In the past he has got excited easily and sometimes mouthy but not today, I kept it nice and chilled and Marley responded in a very chilled-out calm manner. He loved the cuddles and fuss. All of which he got in abundance. Impossible not to love this staffy-boy.

It was very muggy yesterday so during my walk with Marley we sat in the field and Marley enjoyed commando crawling along in the damp grass to cool down. I took the opportunity to get some pictures and videos. Lovely boy. :smiley-gen132.gif:

Another lovely walk with Marley today. We stopped on our walk so Marley could cool off and I could get some pictures of the handsome lad and a few cuddles. :smiley-gen132.gif:

Today I had a lovely time with Marley first in the paddock. Marley had a minute of zooming around, but then of course wanted cuddles and people time. Marley is really developing into a a much more confident and chilled out boy from the one I walked back in January.

Then we then headed for a walk. He really enjoyed the long grass that was slightly damp, so lovely and cooling. I am loving getting to spend time with Marley in recent weeks. It has been a total pleasure.

It was very hot on our walk yesterday but as ever Marley was delightful company. We stopped at the pond, Marley loved the cool ground by the pond. He is maturing so much and becoming such a calmer boy. He is good coming out of the kennel and I haven't had him grabbing the leads in such a long time. Marley responds to calm handling. He really is a lovely natured happy boy who loves one on one time with his walkers. I love him to bits! :smiley-gen132.gif:

I had a lovely, if hot, walk with Marley today. He walked past the horses today without issue which is something that has been improving. I think in the past he has been scared and has barked and jumped around a bit but now he has got used to them he is relaxed and not bothered. Getting to know Marley has been a real pleasure. I get the impression he did not know much about the world when he first came to us and has at times got over-stimulated and not known how to deal with things but I really feel he is maturing in outlook. He still has stuff to learn I am sure but with alert handling I think he will make great progress. I have got used to him and can see when he is getting over excited before it becomes a concern and have been able to distract him out of it. He is a sweet dog who tries hard to please and that is why he has so much potential with the right home. I do love this gorgeous staffie-boy.

Marley had a great time zooming around the paddock last week. He has speed but not much accuracy (like many staffies :biggrin.gif: ) so there were a few times when I thought he was going to head right into me, but didn't (maybe then his accuracy is better than I think :D ). After that some much deserved back scratches were in order followed by a nice walk.

Marley much enjoyed his walk with Helen on Saturday, while I walked with Pablo. Pablo is very chilled walking with other dogs so Marley enjoyed walking with him. Two of my fave boys together so it was lovely!

Marley is quite a sensitive little boy, who just excels when being told he's a good boy. I had no lead grabbing today, he tried, was told no, then given lots of praise. If you talk to him calmly, walk him calmly, Marley behaves calmly. I found just letting him do his own thing for 5 minutes, run off some energy but almost ignoring him at the same time worked for me. After that we practiced recall and sit. Marley loved doing this. When ever I told him what a good boy he was, he laid down and showed me his belly for tummy tickles. He also loved having his head stroked, his eyes crinkled up and he gave me the best smiles. Marley was beautifully behaved today.

I have had regular walks with Marley but not posted any updates - sorry Marley :oops:. He continues to become a calm, more mature dog. I have continued to not have any lead grabbing from him. He really is the most lovely boy who would flourish in an experienced forever home. He does have that excitable energy some staffies can have but being able to spot the signs stops him getting OTT. He wants to please and wants to learn. Like Pegmilly has said in her previous post he delights in being told what a good boy he is. I am so impressed with Marley he is learning so much whilst being in a kennel environment which just shows how much potential this boy has.

I would love to see him in an experienced, calm forever home. He could develop and in the process provide so much love and show what a loyal, happy boy he is.

Here are quite a few photos from recent walks , but he is sooo handsome who would object!

Marley came for a sleepover yesterday. We went for a walk at the kennels first then some paddock time and finally a bath. This was a two man job and Pattie from the kennels was my much needed second pair of hands. Marley was not really sure what was going on so kept trying to make a run for it! :D .

Marley travelled really well in the car, curling up on the front seat. To say he was excited when first arriving in the flat would be an understatement! :D He run around like a loon for 5 minutes, then sniffed and investigated everything. It was a bit like having a full grown puppy in the flat. I didn't begrudge Marley any of this as he has not had much time out of kennels in his life so he was bound to be excited. As time wore on he calmed down and had a snooze on the dog bed.

Marley has a cough at the moment so I have been trying to keep him from exerting himself...no easy task, but he has enjoyed spoonfuls of honey to help sooth his throat. He slept on the bed last night and was a lovely snuggly boy.

Marley can get over-excited but I have found it easy to distract him from getting too excited and rewarding him for calm behaviour. If only there were more weekends in the week I would be able to foster this boy regularly too! :smiley-gen132.gif: He has been so chilled out today. My dad popped by for a coffee and Marley gave him a very friendly greeting and after a few minutes for very excited hellos Marley chilled down and went back to enjoying his chew!

Marley is housetrained and goes to toilet quickly on his walks. He is a very affectionate boy who likes cuddles, not overly licky. He listens most of the time! :biggrin.gif: He wants to please and reads people well. He is a higher energy dog who I think would enjoy an active home.
