Playdates 💙🐾
.
This past week Finn got to enjoy two playdates. The first one was with Charlie, one of his brothers. They always love to see each other and they are still so close! I guess that’s because they got to see each other every week since September. It’s soo nice to see the two of them grow up together. The other playdate was with Kenai (@tollertrails). That was the first time we got to see each other but the two boys were perfectly fine together and there was no sign of stress at any point. I hope we manage to meet again soon and maybe also train a little bit together! 🥰

6 weeks old 👶🏼
.
Sorry we are so inactive lately I just have so much to do with work, applications and Finn.. 😅 But today is #tbt and that is easy cause we have about a million pics of Finn from that time before he even was with us. Finn has always been such a clown that his breeder had a hard time taking pics of him on the table because he just wouldn’t stand still and she was scared he would jump off of it. So that’s him the only one of his siblings being photographed on the ground so he doesn’t hurt himself.. but how could anyone be mad at this little smiling fluffball?! 💙 Love you little munchkin! And we couldn’t have gotten any better dog!

Bye Bye 😢
.
Time flies! This time Aila stayed 5 weeks with us and that’s already over! She is not the only one being sad that she leaves us now.. but as far as I know her she will be overly happy to see my parents again! Especially my mom! We will miss her but I am also quite happy that we don’t have that many doghair in our flat anymore and also that I only have to walk one dog! Because I often had to walk them separately and that just takes up so much time and I always feel like both of them would need more individual attention from me. Finn and I drove to Ulm with Aila and we will stay until Sunday so at least we get to see her a little longer and then again around christmas of course! 💙

Back to Photogenic! 💙
.
Contrary to yesterday’s picture this one shows Finn from his majestic side. It’s crazy how fast he has grown..especially mentioning that he is already way to large for his breed at this age. I also think he doesn’t look like a puppy anymore but really grown up. I guess I have to accept that he isn’t a baby anymore but at least he still loves to cuddle on the sofa and the best thing for him is to lay on top of us as and as close as possible. 🥰

my little calf 🐮
.
I wanted to take pictures of Finn and Aila from underneath and well I am not sure if it shows Finn from his most photogenic side.. I posted this pic in our litter group and everyone said he looks like a little calf on this one. It maybe does look a little like a calf but I also think it shows Finn‘s nature.. he is so curious and wants to discover everything! He is funny as hell and makes us laugh each and every day! And he always looks after me and that obviously also includes checking after me when I am laying on the ground in the middle of nowhere. 😅
Finn is amazing and I don’t care if he sometimes looks stupid while being himself 💙

My Besties 💙
.
The dogs have spend some lazy days lately. I don’t feel like they have a problem with lazy days though. Of course we still take them out for a longer walk so they are tired at home. I am glad that they get along most of the time and also seem to enjoy the time with each other once in a while! Aila does need her space sometimes and Finn learns to give it to her. They are the best!

Family Day 😁
.
Today wasn’t really the best weather in munich. So we spend most of the time on the sofa. The other day we tried to take a „family“ picture to send to Finn‘s breeder on her birthday. It was more difficult than we expected because Finn wasn’t really in photographing mood.. Swipe to see the outtakes! 😂

Active Aila 🥰
.
As I told you just yesterday Aila really flourished the last few weeks. Many of you wanted to see the video about her being active again and she is even able to run!! 😍 I love how happy she looks while running. Finn thinks that her new active self means that they can now play together but that won’t happen. But she actually also is more interested in other dogs again. My baby girl! 🥰

Hoch die Hände, Wochenende!! 🎉 [Hands up it’s the weekend!!]
.
This will be our last weekend with Aila. My parents will be back next week and then we have to give her back to them. 🥺 I love how happy she is with us and especially how active she has become! I am sure it helped her to have a young dog around and also our regular long walks off leash so she could really flourish and enjoy life! 🥰 She also gained self-confidence when being around Finn and actually tells him off when he is too crazy and rude to her which is something I have never seen her do before.

Sun means Fun! 🤪
.
This is his absolute favorite toy! I actually wanted this as a toy that he can have for his own but he gets soo obsessed with this stuffed animal that he can’t stop and goes crazy after a while. So we only give it to him in small doses..As you can see he has a lot of fun with it and hopefully his exaggerated excitement calms down one day and we can give it to him for good. Tollers are easily excited and tend to be too hyped up sometimes. In order to prevent that he goes crazy we have certain rules for playing with him but also for our every day life. We don’t do any fetching, meaning we don’t throw things currently because we don’t want him to start with the so called „toller scream“. This is a high pitching noise that kills your ears when too loud (I am sure that’s true! 🤨). This scream happens when the toller is soo excited and can’t hold back those feelings anymore. Also we try not to push Finn to much with high voices and when going somewhere with many people we tell them to ignore him before he calms down a little himself and then they can pet him and talk to him. From the very beginning we have calmed Finn down in various situations and showed him that he can always relax no matter how exciting life can be. Also when we want to do dummy work he cannot make sounds at all because that would mean we would get disqualified from a working test. A Toller is not like a Golden or Labrador it is its own breed with very different characteristics. I chose the Toller because of its temperament but I knew what I was going for. So don’t get fooled by the nice look and the cute pig nose and inform yourself about the breed when you think you want a Toller. He needs active people that want to work with him in a certain way. Not saying everyone has to do dummy or gundog training. But a Toller needs to be exercised physically AND mentally.

Fall‘s back! 🍁 We thought..

Only 2 days ago we had snow, then yesterday I took my jacket off during my walk with the dogs because it was so sunny and nice and today it’s all grey and cold.. I am glad I took the chance of sunny weather yesterday and took some pictures of my two weirdos!

Happy Half-Birthday!! 🥳
.
Today Finn is exactly 6 months old! It’s crazy how time flies! I remember the day he was born and I received the message from Manu telling me that there is one for me!!! 💙 The longest time began when I had to wait until I first got to see the puppies.. and then already after the first visit I noticed that I lost my heart to Mr. Blue.. I was so scared it would not be him even though I rationally knew I could not know which one fits best to me after only one visit. But then already during our second visit Manu told me that she thinks Mr. Blue would be perfect for us! And now Mr. Blue is a handsome young man making me smile every single day! (Also makes me crazy sometimes but today we stay positive 😅)
I am glad that Finn is part of our little family and I really hope we make him as happy as he makes us! 💙

Heel Work! 🐾
.
Finn hasn’t really had problems with heel work at the beginning. He was so eager to work with me and being close to me is also nothing he dislikes. I wanted to see us during heel work though so I can see whether his butt is turned away from me or if he should be closer to me or anything else that isn’t the way it is supposed to be. I noticed some things that need to be changed but for him only being 6 months old I am totally fine with how far we are right now. As you can see we also work on changing sides and sometimes it is enough when I say the command and sometimes he needs quite some physical help to understand what to do. But I have to admit we haven’t trained side changes that much so I am more than happy how he does it. Also Aila was trying hard to interrupt us at some points and he barely got distracted by her. I also have to try to reward him closer to my leg so he comes closer. But overall I am quite happy with us! 💙 Also I thinks he walks soo cute when heeling!
.
If you notice anything we should do different I am happy to hear/read your advice! 😁

Car-Lover 💙🚘
.
Finn never really had a problem with driving in the car. Normally he is in his box but in certain situations and only for short distances he has to sit in the front. He loves sitting on our laps. I normally don’t like when the windows are open when he is in the front because I am scared he jumps outside.. But for a few meters @kennjynho convinced me to open the window and let Finn experience the airstream. He wasn’t too excited about it but curiosity won.

Winter is coming! ❄️
.
It is freezing in Munich these days. It’s such an up and down in temperature the last 2-3 weeks and you never know how warm or cold it is outside. I love the winter and actually also the cold but only when I wear the right clothes. I can tell the dogs enjoy the colder weather and especially Aila is way more active again. I am glad she is doing better now and has so much fun outside with Finn and me. She actually starts running and jumping again. I was so worried about her in summer that probably nothing makes me as happy as seeing her like this. I really hope she won’t have to suffer like this again. Hopefully the change in diet has helped and the good time lasts.

Winter is coming! ❄️ . It is freezing in Munich these days. It’s such an up and down in temperature the last 2-3 weeks and you never know how warm or cold it is outside. I love the winter and actually also the cold but only when I wear the right clothes. I can tell the dogs enjoy the colder weather and especially Aila is way more active again. I am glad she is doing better now and has so much fun outside with Finn and me. She actually starts running and jumping again. I was so worried about her in summer that probably nothing makes me as happy as seeing her like this. I really hope she won’t have to suffer like this again. Hopefully the change in diet has helped and the good time lasts. . . . . . #winter  #cold  #olddog  #seniordog  #firstdog  #labrador  #labradorretriever  #myblondie  #13yearsold  #notoldyet  #labradorofinstagram  #yellowlab  #pupstagram  #puppy  #dogsonadventures  #weeklyfluff  #bigsister  #barkhappy  #retriever_ig  #retriever  #hund  #bestwoof  #dailybarker  #dogfanaticss  #dogsofinstagram  #dogumented  #munich  #citydog  #dahoam 
Weekend Vibes 💤
.
Something Finn has started to do lately is rub and roll through gras. He hasn’t done that as a pup and maybe started a few weeks ago to really enjoy doing it. I bet it feels great to do it and is kind of like a massage but I guess it isn’t socially accepted to roll and rub through gras as a human being?! 🤔😅 I think being a dog has soo many advantages.. 💙 We wish everyone a great weekend!

Finn is a Retriever 🐾
.
Walking around with an uncommon breed gets you into very interesting conversations. Most people think Finn is an Australien Sheperd. Even people with Aussies often think he is an Aussie. I mean that’s easy to understand. He is about the same size, is really fluffy and has similar markings as brown Aussies. But well he is red. When people ask me what kind of breed he is, I sometimes just say a Canadian Retriever because barely anyone knows what a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is. And why the hell is this name so long! People stop listening after the second or third word.. 😅 And saying he is a Toller doesn’t really help either because people don’t know that’s a breed and in German „Toller“ means greater (good). And let me tell you people look at you really strange if you explain them your dog is great.. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Also explaining that this is the smallest of the Retrievers doesn’t help when Finn is almost the same height as Aila (Labrador Retriever). The funniest encounter though was a person pittying me for being fooled by the breeder because that person said she knew Retrievers and Finn is not a Retriever if I am lucky he maybe is a Retriever mix but for sure not a pure breed Retriever.
Don’t get me wrong I don’t expect people to know about the breed and I am fine with explaining about him. I chose the Toller because of its traits and the work I want to do with my dog. And of course because (in my opinion) Tollers are just so damn pretty. I understand that people want to know about them and ask about the breed.

Trailing 🐾
.
As I told you in one of the last posts we have done a trail lately. I tried my best to film it but it was really hard! 😅 Finn has so much drive when he follows a trail that it is hard to keep up with him. I used one of Finn‘s toys which has real rabbit fur wrapped around at one end and marked the trail by pulling it through the gras from the starting point to the end point. Finn didn’t see me marking the trail so he wouldn’t know where to go and really had to use his nose. You can see at the beginning his nose isn’t near to the ground and thats where he wasn’t as concentrated as later when he really sniffed the ground to find the scent. He twice lost the trail but immediately got back on the trail on his own and followed the right scent. When he finds the toy he is allowed to carry it for a little but but he cannot play with it because later we might do trails with real prey and that is no toy. He carried the toy back to the starting point and that’s where he got quite a few treats. We only do one trail when we train it because I don’t want him to be to hyped up and I don’t want him to be unconcentrated. Trails are so much input for the dogs that one challenges him enough at his age. One of the things we have to train now is that he gives me the dummies and toys in my hand and doesn’t drop them on the ground right before my feet. But we met Manu (@odakotah_nsdtr) today for some training today and I am sure Finn will soon understand what I want from him.
