Both of my boys want to chase cows devil.gif

So we did some 'how to be calm and behave around cows' training on our walk.

How to say hello nicely (and not bark at them to make them run Mr Kofi! rolleyes.gif )

He was a bit of a hit and they all wanted to say hello wub.gif

Image

Shilah saying hello and not leaping about smile.gif

Mummy says we must not chase cows angel.gif

And a few other pics from our lovely walk this morning wub.gif

Shy delighted when he spotted a puddle

Aww, they're lovely pictures (as always).

Saffy (our girl GSD) loves other animals- cows especially because they are always so curious lol.gif

lol.gif

Thanks all. flowers.gif That's one of my favourite walks cos it's just under 3 hours and I am unlucky if I meet one dog. wink.gif

The cow training is still a work in progress, Shilah is curious but also skittish and wants to jump about and bark at them and that usually makes the cows skittish which makes Shilah worse. And Kofi has learnt that if barks then they all run stampeding off and that is great fun. So, now we have to do lots of 'leave it' work when we pass cows. rolleyes.gif

There were loose cows in Scotland which we gave a wide berth to, I try and avoid actually walking through a cow field with my two. They are ok on lead but their body language is very interested and seems to make the cows want to come over and investigate yikes.gif It scares me!! The other side of the fence suits me better! tongue.gif

Lovely pics. The boys are doing really well with the cows, I don't think many dogs would do a down stay with curious cows right behind them.
