Hollie Courbet

Post by jcourbet » 26 Jul 2013, 06:54

Hi all

We have not posted for a while. Just a little update on Hollie.

http://s1318.photobucket.com/user/jcourbet/library/


She is doing fantastic, her and our cat "Tichy" get along better now.

Swimming is fantastic, when she came to us she could not swim now she is teaching other dogs!

Glenys was right she is so stubborn, the other day on our afternoon walk she lay down on the path and refused to go any further!

Hollie is now an expert at camping, we went to Ullswater a few weeks ago and camped by the lake she had the time of her life, she is so spoilt.


Does anybody have any ideas how to stop her digging the garden up she is driving my husband mad?

Speak soon

Hollie is gorgeous, I love the set of pictures :1972:
Regarding the digging, you could try the 'Leave it' command and reward her immediately if she stops digging and then distract her with a game. Alternatively, a friend of mine had a digger and was told 'once a digger, always a digger' by a dog trainer. The 'solution' was to allocate an area for digging in the garden. Not ideal really as you'll still get holes but at least they will be confined to one area :shock:
Perhaps someone else will have some advice too. Good luck!

Lovely pictures of Hollie - she is gorgeous :love4:
Sorry, can't give you any advice, as none of mine have been 'diggers' - lots of other vices, but not that one! :rofl: :rofl:

Lovely piccys, thanks for sharing.

I particularly liked the one where she is not moving far from the BBQ or the heat from it either. It looks a bit cool by the way you are dressed. :sm2: :1967:

Can't suggest other than the same as Joanna, that's one problem I don't have. :lol:

Lovely pictures Jen. Hollie is a very loved doggy, that's for sure :love5: :love5:

Our two aren't diggers either. I had one in the past that was, but she seemed to grow out of it.
