    Oh yes you will, and to prove it you are going to just have to come down here for a visit with me.

    Ah, what sort of training can't be completed successfully in that time? I'm lost...seriously.

    reliable recalls?
    walking perfectly on the lead
    chewing


    remember that pups have two growth periods where they become belligerent and forget everything for a few weeks - at around 8 and 18 months

    I am not doubting your abilities at all - and I look forward to my tassie holiday to make sure I do need to take those lessons

    Start saving woman, cause you're on.
    Walking perfectly on the lead, no problems. When stopping doing full heel circle to left thigh and sitting for next command - no problem.

    Reliable recall not a problem. One thing I mightn't have got done by them is a drop from a run. Will see, she's lazy at times so will probably like to lie down instead. Lol.

    See you near Christmas time, Occy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If anyone can do it DA. I'm sure you can.

    Well done for making a decision DA, that's always the hardest part. Now you have to stop yourself looking at the rescue sites 'just in case'. Not an easy task.

    So that'll make 2 fabulous Christmas presents in a row ( Although I know Inca was a bit of a belated present.)

    Yes, two. Your Charlie and Bella can run rings around their legs and confuse the daylights out of them. Unless mine sit down, of course. Ouch. Oh what fun. Finally someone in Tassie!

    And then of course Occy WILL be coming down for a visit. PMSL.

    Thanks TKay. Um, am I missing something here? How long does it take others to train their dog to perform correct heeling in public, sit, stay, recall, drop, stand?

    Aw come on, seriously???
