Reinforcing the "stay" command

Ozzy and me on Northcott Beach ( North Cornwall ).  We are reinforcing the "stay" command. We start off by playing with the ball.  

When we are nice and relaxed, we start the execise.  The command is "stay" but since I speak French to Ozzy it's "reste".  Not too far at first.

Walking away and increasing the distance.
Ozzy does this really well.

Royal adoption

Living rough just a few weeks ago, from now on a Jack Russell Terrier named Bluebell will be treated like royalty thanks to her new devoted pet parent, Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall.

Just four weeks old when she was rescued from a park, Bluebell was partially bald due to a severe skin problem when she arrived at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. The rescue’s clinic cleared the condition, while her emotional wounds healed thanks to the loving attention she received at the renowned rescue organization, which has provided comfort and care to more than 3.1 million canines and cats since its founding in 1860.

Little Bluebell is currently enjoying her first days with her famous family and playing with her new sister Beth, a one-year-old Jack Russell Terrier who was also adopted by the Duchess from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in August 2011.
