Let's take Jackson to the beach very early - the tide will be right out so even if there are dogs we can avoid them. Very excited J after car ride, Avoided a couple of dogs en route and then hooray -the beach. Sadly although there were only half a dozen dogs all on the horizon, it was all too much. We managed a quick dash to the sea and back with Jackson yelping for the first 50 yards not just at dogs but everything. So back we came. There is an up side, we met a lovely elderly chap who asked if he was a rescue!! He made a half hearted attempt to greet Jackson and I backed off and Jackson was fine while he said he was off to a rescue centre on Monday to look for a dog. Cheery farewell "Don't worry he'll settle down".
Not all bad- he was more relaxed in car on the way home than he's ever been, even lay down for a bit. Third good thing, more time to do ironing ( and mooch on PF!) Fourthly, cheap petrol from Morrisons with voucher.

At least there were a few positive points. You should have gone and got yourself a load of chocolate to snuggle on the sofa with while watching some Sunday afternoon movies :D

You got something positive - its a start! We've tried many things with Bodhi that have had to last less than time than we would like but always try and come away with "at least he didn't do <insert relevant inappropriate behaviour here>"

We had a great walk with Bess this morning, but most of that was us being vigilant. She had some good off lead runs and came back to the whistle each time I tried! Wouldn't trust her though if there were distractions such as birds, dogs or people in sight!

We put her on the lead whenever we saw people or dogs, and so avoided any incidents. Worse thing was people stopping to admire her as in working on her ignoring them. Got better when she was covered in stinking mud for obvious reasons!

So we came back quite pleased with her, but I feel for you as so often when we go to a place with people and dogs it can so easily be a disaster!

Yep the insert relevant was " lunge and spin"
