I would like some fun, unusual, prefferably free things to do with my dog. I am taking a dog trainers course in april (learning to be a dog trainer) and he sent us a package and suggested making sure the dogs were well socialized and conditioned (it's a fairly strenuos course). Stryder (my yr and 7 month old mini poodle) is a very friendly dog to both people and dogs and isn't a big chicken about most things. I used to dog groom and once he had all his shots he came with me everyday so he got some socialization there with other dogs at the shop and the groomers and stuff so he deffinately isn't unsocialized and scared I just really want to make sure he won't react too badly to things once we get to the trainers course. So what are your most fun, creative things to do with your dog to socialize them and condition them? I am planning to bring Stryder to the barn with me to meet the horses and the people there, he gets walks and stuff but what else would be totally unusual and cool to do? Thanks for reading and replying!
