    We do obedience and agility (not trialling agility yet as we only just started - a goal for the new year though). And all the social things we can - going to cafes, markets, doggy social days etc.

    We attend lots of promo walks with our GAP grey. Sometimes we can end up with 25-30 greys on a walk. Most times it's around 10 - 12. Creates lots of attention from the public and they recieve lots of pats.

    yep I like cafes & markets, farm sales for getting my dogs used to heaps of different types of poeple & pets.
    Mt TM's wont to agility but since having the poodles we are starting to do some training but we lack a good agility or obedience club clodser than an hrs drive away.
    You Beagle is going great from the clip you posted, congrads. Not everyone has the commitment to get even anywhere near where your up to & Beagles are scent driven so you must really have the dogs attention.

    No I don't do greyhound rescue but help promote them as pets.
    I know alot of foster carers so our walks also include foster dogs, exposing them to lots of things, such as bikes, skate boarders, other pets, cows, chickens, roads, bridges, steps, water and cafes. We have also volunteered at the Melb show at the GAP stand.

    Bit of a slacko here.


    Go for long walks and meet the regulars. They call them by name now but never remember mine (or me theirs ). We often stop and talk for ages about anything. If we take a different route, or go in reverse, people notice & comment lol.

    In fact........They basically do what I do....

    Shopping... They love the buthchers best.

    Driving. Scotty hangs head out ute window & bindy sits in the middle giving me advice.

    Fishing,... Bindy loves the water and Scotty chases water dragons, ahhh, sooooo not relaxing.

    Gardening....Forever sticking their faces right where my hands are working.

    Lie on the lounge with the telly......No idea how they learned this skill.

    Eat food.....This is when they are most awake.

    Wait for the postie.... I have learned to keep them out the back when I hear his bike coming.

    Sleeping.....we do this at night time

    Bindy is now 6 years & good with basic obedience, was from pound (3 months)

    Scotty is now 14 & bad at basic obedience, was from pound (12 years)

    What a great thing to do as they really are great pets & can be wonderful couch companions.
