I was asked to give some updates in my last thread about Stu (scared of the great outdoors). Well the only thing he is scared of now are the big trucks. We have been going on walks mon through thrus up on the walk paths above our apartments. I have not yet brought him back to the dog park because he is now barking at other dogs on the path and humans as well. I make sure he knows not to bark, by telling him to hush. It seems to work, he is almost going all the time outside, but sometimes still uses his pads. I think I'm going to give him another week or two before i take the pads away. He had inproved a lot though over the last few weeks, still working on it though.
