Hi Geoff,
Re dogs at the boot sales.
As you know I have an interest in dogs as we have several in the family and my daughter trains full time. I tend to clock dogs wherever I am so I take notice of what is happening at the boot sales as well The dogs that are larger are too big and for small dogs the experience at the start of the sale must be a nightmare, no room to move, dragged around with no thought for who might be treading on them. I have seen dogs winding leads around table legs, dogs eyeing each other up in the aisles while their owners hunt stalls and ignore them. Dogs hung by their leads and dogs pooing whilst being dragged along. On hot days if I am selling I try and remember water and a bowl---because some owners obviously don't realise that dogs need a drink as well. I have twice had a small dog wee on stuff that has been on the ground.
On the plus side boot sales are a great place to socialise a pup and make sure it is capable and happy to mix in public. You don't need to pull the dogs around the sale while it is busy, you can sit and chill and let the dog watch everything and then have a walk round when it gets quieter. Its nice for the dogs to share their owners lives but not at the expense of other people having bad experiences and becoming part of the anti dog brigade.
Would it be a solution to stop dogs coming in for the first hour of the sale? That way the aisles will have cleared a bit and both dogs and humans would be more comfortable and better able to cope.
Personally I either come to socialise a dog and concentrate on that or the dogs stay home and I come to shop, no way can I look for bargains while worrying about what a dog is doing.
Lynn
Thanks Lynn,
Are there any other comments please should we BAN big dogs from the selling area or ALL DOGS? if you give me your opinion and I get it wrong I can then blame you!
Lynn's daughter runs a Dog Obedience & Training business which is highly successful, we took our Nana Moon for training at 3 months old and she is most obedient however she is also 'on guard' at our Car Boot Sales so please adults leave her alone when she is working.
A man came to the car for change the other day at Newquay and Nana Moon was laying across the front of the car half asleep, I said don't touch the dog please, but the stupid twat says 'Oh I never have any problems with these terriers' but would he listen ‘oh no’ and he put his hand in the car to stroke her and the FAT BITCH got him in one go drawing a dash of blood to the top of his fingers and the car rocked with laughter as I said to Mr Twat "I told you not to touch her, she's on guard, she's working, shall I put it in the Accident Book my lover? I What a silly sod! Good Girl Nana Moon, good girl!

Back to my story of Cher the lovely hairdresser friend of CBC and her hippopotamus she bought for two quid's! Well, over the weekend I saw another identical one on an antiques/collectors stall for £16.00 so it seems Cher got an bargain so I apologise for my rudeness darling. x
It's still yucky though? AND, and if the antiques/collector stall were to reduce it to say two quid's then you could have two, its probably the only chance he will get to sell it! Do you want me to ask the dealer for you? Hah! Gotcha!! 3 Cher's hip hip hoorah!

BACK to the DOGS and some of their owners take your turdies HOME! Ta.
