Yes we’re building up to leaving him but he’s not yet ready to be shut in the crate for any length of time (and a Kong or chew only keeps him occupied for 5 mins or so at the moment) and he is not yet 9 weeks so too little to leave - frequent toileting, destruction etc. He’ll have care when I’m back at work and will work on building to leave him. Leaving them too quickly can trigger separation anxiety (my sister’s dog has it) and desensitising him to me leaving him is best done gradually to avoid it. We’re not yet up to enough time for a run but will get there :-)

Got a session with a trainer today hopefully online. Get us on track with the training. :-)

My daughter has to leave the radio on (normally Radio 4) when my grand puppy is left on his own. It seems to keep him happy 😊.
Pen, I’m not suggesting this as a solution for you. It just makes me smile to think of Odgar listening to the Archers and Woman’s Hour.

They are all so different Ellie didn’t give a hoot at being left but Bailey learnt from. Caffrey to be stressed at being left. We only had 2 weeks at home with ours when we got them then it was work. Grateful Ellie is so independent. It is like having kids, although with children you at least get 9 months off.

Enjoy him he sounds a little diamond.

We also leave radio or tv on when we are not home. Caffrey used to have Cartoon Network on I’m sure it’s where he learnt the mischief he was famous for.

well I got over the 900m mark for the end of November so 98m to do this month.

Hope you're all plodding on and keeping well. Hope little Albie continues to keep you amused and busy Pen.

Well done GC. I’m sure that you’ll achieve 1000.

I managed my highest monthly total since January 2019 in November, which leaves me 33 miles to reach my revised 2020 target of 300.
It’s been greatly assisted by being furloughed, so I’ve had more opportunity this month to run.
(During the earlier five furlough month furlough we were advised not to go out at all, although I did a bit!)

Got something to say?

*EDIT* in the current situation we are not entering races but I think we can still log any plans we may have over the coming months, whether it is learning a new skill, ticking jobs off a list, moving house(!), doing alternative exercise, aiming for training hours instead of miles, writing to family & friends, finding inventive ways to be together virtually or even entering virus races please fill in the planner and I’ll update this thread and keep our little social group going to share our goals.

Everyone is welcome, whether you don't want to set an official target or you may be aiming further but still want to pop by for a chat/offer some words of wisdom or just because the door is always open and kettle is on.

If you update the race planner after I've updated the header drop me an fmail or a reminder (or 2) on the thread so I know to update. Thanks
