24 Paws of Success
We had an amazing day with the dogs today. We rarely have company, but today a couple of friends came over for dinner. These two friends have met each dog several times individually and not at our home. We weren't worried, but the dogs act different together in their packs and at home then they do when they are alone and out and about.
Since these friends weren't complete strangers, most of the battle was already won, but how would they take to these friends being in their home? They were fantastic. They didn't act any different then if it was just us home. All of the dogs were comfortable and relax and seeing that they had already developed a bond with these friends made all the difference. This made a very relaxing day and eliminated any concerns we might have had with the dogs.
A simple experience that turned out beautifully. We are both so proud of all of the dogs that gives us more confidence in them considering the limited exposure they have had to company in the house. It was a great feeling to be able to trust them not realizing the prep work we had already done was going to pay off so well. We are both pleased with the success and welcome the chance to do it again.
