Cooper and Gretel had never met before, but that’s ok! Nick and Maureen make sure every outing starts out calm. Before expecting the dogs to settle, Nick and Maureen took a quick walk to burn off excitement. This helps both dogs become familiar with each other without having to meet face to face. Gretel and Cooper both rely on their trainer to take the lead so all they have to do is relax and be good company.
It was the perfect afternoon.
Taking your dog out in public doesn’t mean all the attention has to be on him. Your dog will be more than happy to be by your side and hang out while you relax if you have the right leadership, rules, and boundaries in place. Keep an eye out for our upcoming October Social Outings classes with some special stops at local breweries!
