Happy Training Thursday! Hope you’re keeping warm and active despite the cold.
As I work with Lucky to socialize and experience new things, I’m always goal setting to work on a specific aspect such as toy drive or a love of people. I took her to a new park and she was so nervous. When we first arrived, she was alert and curious, but also cautious. It took her a little longer to get into playing and she played with less enthusiasm than our normal park. I need to bring her to more new places in her socialization training. Upon further reflection, she also wanders further on our usual hiking spots compared to new ones. Lesson learned for hopeful SAR handler.
