Monty followed the girls, Tilly and Keisha out on their walk today. He was excited to see them going ahead of him. No barking or growling from Monty, just enthusiasm to keep up with them. We kept a respectable distance today but I have no doubt he would have greeted politely if allowed, as his body language was friendly and very relaxed. He walked very calmly behind them, having to stop and sniff everywhere they did but then keen to catch up again. The girls headed off for a shorter walk and I fully expected Monty to try and follow them but Monty knows the longer route and he marched off on his own, clearly keen to be going for a much longer walk today. We went Monty's way as we were in no hurry to get back. Such a bright boy! Many positive experiences for Monty today including seeing 2 dogs walking past while he was in the paddock, and after acknowledging their presence, he was able to come away and focus back on our game of ball.

Monty's socialisation is coming along in leaps and bounds.(but not literally!) Monty shared a lovely, relaxed, long walk with Missie(walking with Stuart) and Roxy (walking with Hilbre) this morning. He was relaxed from the off and all 3 dogs behaved perfectly around each other. Monty had one very brief excitable, bouncy moment when Missie was having a roll and he thought he would join in, but I steered him away and he calmed again immediately. It is important that Monty stays calm around other dogs to keep all the experience positive for Monty and the other dogs and Monty is learning to control his youthful energy and enthusiam while gaining in confidence in social situations with other dogs.

Monty had a lot of excess energy this morning and bounced out of his kennel ready for adventure. We had planned to join Codi for a walk and Monty was delighted to see him and was well behaved with Codi from the off. We respectfully gave Codi his space for the first few minutes while Monty calmed himself, as I was sure Codi did not want to be bounced on by a Tigger dog, although Codi seemed to enjoy Monty's company and took it all in his stride. Codi was cool, calm and collected and seemed very relaxed with Monty so after a while we let the boys walk together if they wanted. It was interesting because Monty liked being in front and was busy investigating all sorts of smells. Codi was happy to follow but kept an eye on him and if he thought Monty had sniffed out something interesting he trotted over to have a look. Clearly Codi is a clever dog, letting Monty do all the work and only joining in if he felt it was worth the effort! 0002.gif] A lovely walk was had by all.

It's been a while since Monty and I shared a walk on our own as we have been concentrating on having social walks. I realised how much more relaxed and confident Monty is walking with a canine companion rather than on his own. He was relying heavily on me this morning to help with his confidence, a job done so much better by another dog. Despite lacking in confidence Monty coped extremely well when we had to pass an escaped horse, firstly on the road and then twice when it cantered down the bridle path past us. Good boy Monty. xx

Monty had a lovely walk yesterday with Geoff, joining in with Buster and Anne, and Frankie and me. Monty loved walking with the other dogs. He was very bouncy and excited to start with but settled very quickly. He was very interested in making friends with Buster and Frankie, and Buster was so good at helping Monty, showing him gently how to socialise politely. Geoff reports Monty was an easy walk and a delight, and he definitely enjoyed walking in the company of the other dogs. He was happy to have the mud wiped off his legs afterwards and was very gentle in accepting his treats. A lovely young lad who needs to be in a home learning lots of different skills, he’s enthusiastic and quick to learn xx

Jake and Beth walked Monty today accompanied by Terry walking Troy. Monty was unsettled to begin with but totally understandable. He’d never met Jake, Beth or Troy before and was just a little overwhelmed. After a while, Monty did settle, enjoying his walk and making new friends. He came back a happy boy. Terry walks at 100mph, Jake and Beth walk for miles - i should imagine Monty will be sleeping very well tonight. Xx

I took Monty to the paddock this morning to stretch his legs and boy did he run and run and run. Monty has lots of energy and was delighted at the chance to have his freedom to run, explore and play. He is so connected and responsive but he is a mucky pup and does get himself rather muddy.

Monty was fizzing with excitement and energy as I entered his kennel this morning. However once he saw his best mate, Timmy Tim he relaxed quickly and was very chilled on his walk.
