From Phil ....
As Dylan came out, he recognised me. Clever boy! I clipped my Cani-cross lead onto his harness and put his metal leads into my backpack. His face lit up when he saw that I was carrying a tennis ball for him which I promptly gave him to carry. Once we got past the narrow passageway to the field, I connected a 10m trail lead and we started playing 'throw the ball 2-3 metres'. From the first throw, I learnt to start running the minute I threw the ball as, if he knocked the ball on 4, 5 or 6 metres, I soon ran out of trail lead which was hilarious.
We walked all the way round and went into a large field where he did lots of sniffing, smelling and cropped some grass.
We proceeded to walk round the woods with the pond and returned to play lots of ball. Dylan went round me 3 times, wrapping the trail lead round me just as I was about to throw the ball; mischievous lad would've floored me, lol. He has a great sense of humour.
When we returned to the kennels, I put down a plastic sheet with a fleece on it, put out the dog biscuits and some water and we had a little picnic. We played a little game of ball; using my knuckles very gently, I tried to nudge the ball out of his mouth. He then dropped it and my hand would creep towards it like a little spider while he watched every movement intently; fantastic. When he went back into the kennels, he looked back at me; awesome!
Dylan loves being told that he is a 'good boy', listens to my constant chatter very politely, lol, adores being outside and engaged in ball play and games such as Sprinkles. I find him a fun guy to take out AND as you can see from the videos, he has the most adorable face. I am SO looking forward to our next excursion.
