    Well, I did question OH quite hard, but did't get any useful information, so I guess I'll never know!

    A photo from the event. This is the clicker gundog session with Leanne Smith, I am with Bramble who was the youngest dog at just under 5 months old. Leanne was demonstrating clicker training the retrieve from puppy through to older dog. The emphasis for a pup was to have fun! We used long tubular toys( not dummies or tennis balls) and initially C&T when Bramble touched the toy...eventually placing the toy on the ground, then gradually working on a good delivery through C&T. Bramble thought this was great fun!

    Oh that dog...actually I had convinced myself it was a rug as it barely moved! :)

    Isn't it Lisa's Layla? In which case it's an Irish water spaniel and it barely moved because it has a perfectly trained settle. I only wish I could say the same for Charlie....:D

    There certainly was a delightful Irish Water Spaniel there. Not sure of its name though.

    Even though I wasn't there, I think there were two IWS.

    I can't see either the dog's face, or the handler's face! :)
