New puppy

Hi everyone,
I hope you are all well,
We have a new dog, she came to us last August, at 8 weeks old, sheís now 11 months and oh my what a shock to the system, at times I felt like giving up....but anyhow thatís not my style and just kept going, it was tough though lol 😆

Now she has matured a little bit and grown up she is an absolute pleasure to own 😊

She is a working bred ESS, docked and parents health tested.
Both her parents work, Her Sire was made up to a field trial champion last Oct.

She is just a happy little dog and always has a wiggly butt! An absolute pleasure to walk, now iíve Sorted the pulling out, and her recall is fab too, and itís lovely walking a non reactive dog.

Thanks Kazz,

I didnít want another SBT after losing Meg.

We called her Lily, Her mother was called Meg, so strange the way it happened, We werenít actually looking for another pup, but Tim just happened to come across this litter, so we contacted her breeder, went to view and the breeder ticked all my boxes and the rest was history :grin Breeder also asked us a lot of questions, where we live, did we have a garden, will she be left on her own etc etc we told him he was welcome to come and see our house and garden 😊

I have a work colleague I walk her with and her two little terriers and we have so many fields here and beautiful walks, iím Currently walking her between 3 and 4 miles a day and she gets a good run either offlead or if itís not safe she will go on her line.
Sheís good with the cats, she wants to play with them and often drops a ball for them

Sheís been really hard work, and extremely frustrating at times, but I guess thats the fun of raising a puppy, and I tried clicker training, had huge success with that

Hi Lynn,
I'm really not a fan of young puppies, I must be a bit of an odd bod
It had been 13 years since I last raised a puppy and it was a bit of a shock to say the least, we weren't going to crate train but after 5 days we decided that we needed one, as we just couldn't watch her 24/7.

Now she's a bit older and responding well, can actually see the work that's gone into her paying off, am I really enjoying her.


I am hoping to do her KC good citizen award and when she's a bit older I would love to do agility with her, well that's the plan anyhow

You are not odd well maybe you are but then I am too as I am not a fan of puppies either. She sounds perfect for you and the family. A couple in my road have an ESS and he is lovely called Hector and he is about 12/13 now. I have met a couple of Welsh Springer Spaniels and have to say I am a fan of those.

Doesn't it make dog walking a pleasure when they are non-reactive?

Sounds like your girl has really found her feet and you have many more years to enjoy each other xx

Thank you
It really does, itís lovely to have her off lead too, and knowing if she sees anyone she doesnít know returns to me and I put her in a sit put her lead on and make her wait until they have passed, then let her go again

Sheís quite timid with dogs and people she doesnít know, so sort of makes recalling her a little easier lol

Hi Sal - Great to see you here again and so pleased you have another dog. They really do enhance our lives.


Keep us posted on developments, also how is your lad I seem to recall we had some discussions about him as well. Hope I've got that right

Thank you,
Hope you are well,
Lily has helped us heal after losing Meg, sheís so enthusiastic, so full of life and full of energy, and so intelligent, I love her to bits, such a special little dog

Luke is doing really well, eventually passed his driving test, and works in a private school in the kitchen, heís not at work at the moment though due to this virus.

I will keep popping in when time allows as I am now in full time work, and nearing the completion of my NVQ in health and social care.
