Odin Starts To Learn He is a Boat Dog

(Boats Chalice & Sickle - posted by Cath)

Odin was allowed out in public on Monday - when his immunisations had taken effect, at 11 weeks old. It was a bit of a shock for him as we took him to a puppy training class. He actually did very well, managing to walk well to heel, and having great fun playing with the other puppies. It is important that he learns how to behave around other dogs, as well as other animals.

On Tuesday we set off from Cheddington with Chalice much later than would have been ideal. For Odin this was another big event - until this point he didn't know that he is a boat dog.

We realise that everything that much of what he sees is completely new to him - boats, ducks.

We picked Sickle up below Grove Lock, where we had left her the previous weekend, after the Linslade Festival, and moved on up to a mooring near to the big Tescos in the middle of Leighton.
