Every day

I'm sorry if I get on your nerves at times, but as Hans is not at home I have to tell someone.

This morning I stopped to talk to a neighbour who was planting pansies in her little bit of garden next to the road.
Motley walked onto the dirt near where she was planting, I just spoke to him as normal "come off please Motley"
My neighbour stood opened mouthed because he did as he was told "he took notice of what you said" itīs just a normal thing for me, but she was obviously amazed.

Then in the house I just said "we haven't cleaned your teeth yet" I went to put water in his mug and came back to find him already waiting on the bed. He is such a lovely little dog, listens and understands no wonder I love him so much.

Every day he does something to make me smile and tell him he's a lovely boy.

That is a lovely story, Jan. Every time we demonstrate that kindness works we gain another convert.

Here on site most of the dogs are walked on lead or only let off for a short while in fenced areas. This leads to them being frustrated and displaying bad behaviour. The owner is then embarrassed and blames the dog. Dogs pick up all this negativity and display more bad behaviour .

I am shattered trying to train the one year old Working Cocker that is Georgia but I know that it Is already paying dividends and she may one day be nearly as good as Motley

Frank, have a word with a vet nurse at your practice. They have all sorts of solutions. One toothpaste is just given to the dog to eat. The advice is usually free
There are other causes of bad breath too. They include diet and exercise and various diseases .

Motley and all our Shelties had head breath even though their teeth were either cleaned by me or not.
Frank you obviously haven't tried hard enough, or maybe too hard.
I used to clean Shades teeth as well, you must make a game of it to start with, doesn't need to be a brush, dog toothpaste though, on a bit of cloth, one tooth today two tomorrow etc., don't force just make a game talking to her all stupid, it takes time, but in the end you get there.

I just thought I would add, you've seen the video of the little cat Itsme, she is not a house cat and I doubt very much if her owner has ever attempted to pick her up, us being us we wanted to hold her because she is such a darling little thing.
First week or so stroking her along the length of her body, then putting our hands around her and under her tummy, then a few days of lifting her 2" off the ground for a few seconds and each day a little higher and a little longer until now we can pick her up and hold her loosely in our arms, she doesn't struggle and now she no longer has her feet stretched out and claws. We still don't hold her for too long, but it will come.
