I just woke up and my two dogs are sitting in the floor staring at me to DO SOMETHING. I don't wanna. Got to meet the family for easter church and it's raining outside so we can't even walk. The last 3 days were spent hiking and then at an agility trial for 2 of them. They should be pooped. But no. They're bored and want me to DO SOMETHING with them.

I can't read their minds. I gave them bully sticks but that seems like it wasn't enough. Maybe they're just so used to getting out early the last few days that they're waiting for me to start getting their stuff ready.

If I have to go somewhere during the day and the dogs have to stay in for a few hours, Bear (the JRT) has problems seedling at night if he doesn't get played with during the day and / or has to stay inside ... WTF, dog, even my high energy cattle dogs are ok with that if it happens but a 15 year old JRT isn't???

Bit of gushing about my awesome dog.

We were visited family in Indiana these past few days and I cannot be more proud of how Abrams behaved himself. (Besides not knowing how to react in a multi-level house with a ton of people and other dogs.)

12 hour car ride north? He did great, even if he did bark at people at gas stations. First night in an unfamiliar location, after said car drive and no exericse? Perfect. He fell right asleep in his portable crate, that he had NEVER been exposed to before, without any fuss. He didn't care about the cats, he didn't care about the multiple dogs, and for the first time in his entire life he was able to be around Chloe without her trying to kill him because he actually respected her when she told him off. He was thrown into a lot of different situations - staying in a kennel outdoors in an unfamiliar area, staying in my car in busy parking lots while we ate out, a strange house he had never been in before and then had to sleep at, going from one place to another without Cynder, being off leash in unfamiliar areas - and he just took everything in stride. No anxiety, no nervousness, just, "Okay, sweet, what's next?!" On the trip back home he just dozed the entire time and when we stopped at gas stations or rest stops he didn't bark at anyone or anything. Got out, calmly did his business when asked, and went right back into the car and fell asleep.

I was so proud of him. <3 I love having a dog that takes everything in stride. I haven't had a dog like that since Blackie.

My travelling buddy on the way home:

Squashies is such a good boy. Hung out with the neighbors a little bit this afternoon in the yards (we have a gate in the fence between our backyards) and he is still so polite with other dogs. Their daughter has a little cocker mix who was a little overwhelmed by him, and after trying to engage her in play he left her alone after her polite but firm doggie NO THANK YOU. (And just paced around the yards from person to person for a while, lol.)

Reiterating that Abrams is awesome. He just played with bubbles that my mom bought him, and had his very own Easter Egg hunt in the backyard. He'd find an egg, take it, cracked it open, eat the treats in it, then (begrudgingly) give me the egg and go find another!

I love my dog.

One of my neighbors recently got a new dog. She has decided that Jubel is the devil and must die. They met twice briefly when she first came home. Nothing has happened between them other than a brief exchange of dirty looks that led to a quick snark from her. They don't come anywhere near each other now.

Jubel is fine, couldn't care less about seeing her. She on the other hand goes ballistic lunging, barking, and snarling seeing him from a far distance. I've tried talking to my neighbor about LAT and my willingness to work with her on training so Lucy can see Jubel without losing her mind. She seemed receptive but don't know if she'll actually follow through. I hope she does. They don't have to like each other but I really don't want to risk Lucy getting out and attacking Jubel. I've seen them leave their front door open with the storm door closed. She's a big strong dog, I don't trust that storm door to contain her. Plus they have kids, I'd guess the youngest is 9-10, don't trust them not to let her slip out if she sees Jubel.

Really hoping this doesn't end badly.

Do you have a reason to be concerned? Doesn't sound like anything other than reactivity if all that happened upon a meet was a snark. Sounds unlikely she would approach him willingly with that sort of intro. Def not out for blood, anyway.

Training would of course make it more pleasant, but even if a dog isn't reacting it could still be very aggressive and attack a dog if it were to get loose. Some of the most seemingly pleasant dogs can do the most damage when you least expect it.

Hope it works out! The stress alone is enough to drive you crazy.

Since moving back in with my parents, Rigby has been showing some concerning DA, especially when it comes to working for food.

Because the All About Pets Show was such a huge event for us, I signed her up for another round of beginner obedience a month before just to get her used to working around dogs comfortably.

Yesterday she was in a great mood. No snarkiness, not even a sideways glance at another dog. She was even sort of sociable with a few dogs which was really nice. It was just great to see her in a more relaxed state.

I am so proud of her!

Gosh, I love having such a stable dog. New dogs in the house all weekend, lots of calamity, long car trips and visiting the parents for the first time and he hasn't skipped a beat. <3

I'm sure there are people that watched who figure I just made a lucky guess, but I know her subtleties from Nose Work.

I don't think we'll get any qualifying legs in Novice, because she is so not into those tunnels, but right now I am just happy to see her working at something new and want her to have fun despite the fact that other dogs exist.

Sports that accommodate reactive dogs = win. Our first ribbon and first title.
Congrats!
