A Peak District mini adventure ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ”

Today we took Amos for his first experience of the Peak District!

We went to a little quarry that was perfect to let Amos have an explore without coming across too many other dogs or people! We only came across two other people the whole time we were there it was bliss!

Amos has been doing really well dealing with distractions and him and Toby are working and training really well together I took them for a โ€œbusyโ€ walk last night to work on distractions with Amos and he did really well – I managed to keep him focussed on me on 11 out of 15 distractions! Which is pretty good going I think!

So as a reward for all their hard work yesterday I thought theyโ€™d like a more peaceful walk today – they had a whale of a time, lots of new things to sniff, Amos had Toby to chase, they did have a little wrestle whilst we were out too which is nice to see as Toby has always been very firm with his โ€œI will not playโ€ rule!

We did some training whilst we were out also – everyday is a school day after all! We practiced waits and positions, Toby did some recall and searches too so it was still a busy walk for them both just in a fun way!

We did have some other distraction work to practice – Amos LOVES fluffy toys so we took some friends out with us to play with whilst we were out!

He had to concentrate on me instead of the fluffy friends for this picture! Which he did a sterling job of! Toby has a solid โ€œleaveโ€ with toys so wasnโ€™t too fussed about having little pals in his back pack which makes a change from his usual official first aid kit duties โ˜บ๏ธ

We then headed home to spend the afternoon doing a spring clean!

Obviously I enlisted the help of the boys – for the purpose of the spring cleaning I re-named them Ginger Kim and Grumpy Aggy (heโ€™s not really grumpy that is just his face) they were on board for helping but only if they stopped every three minutes for a snack – so I powered on without them ๐Ÿ˜‚

For our afternoon walk we went to another new place in a little village about 20 minutes away from us – the aim was to find the mere and walk round but instead we just followed a public footpath through some farmers fields – we didnโ€™t stay out for long as I could see Amos was getting tired and heโ€™s too heavy for me to carry back to the car! ๐Ÿ˜‚

We did get some recall practice in for both boys on our second walk though (Amos stays on lead for his safety and as he is a foster dog) ย but heโ€™s doing very well with his recall training – Toby always wins though heโ€™s a speedy one is ย Toby ๐Ÿ˜‰
