I know what you mean..... Jack is amazing when it comes to monitoring me especially if we are in a strange place, his eyes never leave me. If he gets out of sight on a walk when he is free he comes back to check on me. Eigg did that as well. I think it's a characteristic of a 24X7 dog.....

I couldn't resist posting this photo of my cousin's Labrador, Merlin. Those eyes follow you around the room!

Jack does the same. He loves eye contact and takes more notice of body language than spoken commands. That's the big difference between them and cats who don't usually like eye contact...... They see it as aggressive.

Did any of you see the American bloke gentling the Dartmoor Pony on a recent episode of Victorian Farm. Fascinating and all about body language......

I went a couple of times to see Monty Roberts doing demonstrations of his "join up" method of training horses when he was touring this country introducing his technique over 25 years ago. Wonderful to see how it works.

Is that who I was watching? He was good and his methods definitely worked.

Another American called Mike Branch apparently but using the same methods. That took a bit of Googling, it was Edwardian Farm!

I've watched and enjoyed all of them but it's a few years ago now.

It's the time of year when dogs do a lot of grooming and scratching. Always a bit of a toss up whether it's dry skin or fleas. I shall give Jack a flea treatment just in case even though I see no signs.....
