Thanks for all the replies!
Another question Jess, is Maya good at recall and did you take her to training classes, oh and another question, will you train our pup when we get her
Maya has a brilliant recall, as good (if not better!!) than any of the labs. She is a total mummys girls so always comes running back if she gets too far ahead with the other dogs! I wouldnt trust her near roads, but then i wouldnt walk any of the dogs offlead near roads, but the beach was ideal!
And yep, send her over I LOVE training puppies!!!
How in the world did you manage the logistics of this? There's got to be more to the story…and a great story it must be....all those labs, pugs, and a Mom that must have been sent from the Gods, plus Maya and Ruby!!!
Tell us more. Please?
Not much to tell!! It just needs a big car and a very tolerant pack of dogs!! Its quite a tight squeeze in the car, but they all just get on with it and go to sleep (the puglets are in a seperate crate cos they annoy all the other dogs by biting them…!!), we're hoping to get a bigger car next year lol But all of the "big" dogs (ie, not the puglets lol) get on great so thats not a problem at all.
And the dogs just dont get stressed in new places. I thought Maya might, but she LOVED it. They just made themselves at home. They had even more attention than when we're at home as they were with us 24/7 and it was a holiday for the dogs mostly, so every day was dog walking and stuff, they loved it.
We rented a two bedroom cottage (very dog friendly, the owners have flatcoat retrievers themselves) and me and my mum each had a bedroom and the dogs were loose in the open plan living/kitchen area. We're hoping to get another trip in before xmas as we enjoyed this one so much, but the owners have just sold the house and holiday cottages so we're keeping fingers crossed they wont have moved out by the time we want to go back!!
