while I was away on holiday, I employed a fabulous dog walker. My kids here here and minded the dogs overall, but they are not much on the dog walking front so I hired the dog walker.

Well, she was FABULOUS with the dogs - she could get them to do anything (well, slight exageration, but you get my drift). She offered to come and help me with them, which we did a coupld of times. Really great stuff, no charge for the extra visits, amazing woman.

The dogs now are doing great - but, I find that I can control them MUCH better if I use commands with a South African accent. You guessed it, our wonderful dog walker was South African, so I talk like her and my dogs leap to. Wow. I did it accidently, I just tried to picture the way she did it (she tells me it is a lot about body language) and somehow the words came out with a south african accent.

I hope my dogs are not planning on migrating seeing they understand the language better over there, I would really miss them ......

still giggling

That's very funny Raglet :rotfl:
At least you can do the South African accent :)

I bet it's something in the way your body language changes or your determination shows through...I hope it lasts but you'll still love em if it doesn't!

yes, I think it is the body language too - but once I think my way into the body language, the accent just comes out.

fortunately I seem to be able to manage a few works that sound right. It's hysterical, I was showing the kids tonight and they were astonished !

I wonder which accent I need to get Glen to stop trying to walk faster than I am when we go anywhere new and exciting...

My accent seems fine for everything else...but not that, he's an obsesive collie after all :)
