Funnily enough J is a difficult letter for our dog names. It was also a few pages I removed from our baby name books when my kids were born. Teachers will understand that, all in good fun. Any way we do have a few J dogs. There’s Jack and one of my all time favourite names: Jelly bean!

Technically I can also add Flirt to this list. Her show name is Justanoldfashionedgirl – don’t ask how Flirt came from that, but it suits her.

As for commands within reason we can teach our dogs to jump. Now with these big dogs you don’t want then jumping too much as it can damage joints. Also they get heavy quickly and having a 40Kg dog jump on you is not that much fun.

Until next time – have fun!
