Yesterday we met up with our friend from Got Spots blog and her younger dog, Doc for some training and fun. Doc has shown some limited reactivity so we worked on some BAT and LAT with Shayne and Rio as bait. Doc did lovely and seemed perfectly fine under the circumstances. Anyhow, after the work, we took the dogs for a nice walk through the woods and got to sit and hang out… Shayne did beautifully and only growled twice–one was just an overly arousing moment when Doc got too close (actually bumping into her) while being pet by some strangers and the other was totally justified when Rio and Doc were playing and Rio landed on Shayne. Rio and Doc were quick friends and had a good time playing and socializing!
All the dogs were really good together and seemed to be quick pals which is really nice, especially for Shayne who used to take quite some time to warm up to new dogs!
And… last but NOT least… because Rio is just THAT special… a SILLY photo of him….
