Well what happened to spring!?

British summer time has officially started, but we are all waiting for the kick start of the spring?

This has had a knock on affect to all things including nature and the dogs. The girls have been late coming in season due to the lack of sunshine and extreme weather conditions for this time of year.

Summer is the warmest of the four temperate seasons, between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, culture, and tradition, but when it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.

We have started our summer group Gundog training sessions on Sunday's. We do retrievers one week then spaniels and HPR's the next week. We work on obedience on and off lead, sit and stay, retrieving and steadiness, all dogs have to work using the distraction of the other dogs and owners.
