I actually left the house on my own tonight! I took Chewy for a walk around the block so he wouldn't run away when we were hanging out on the patio tonight. He's getting good about other dogs, thanks mostly to Doc's training. They distract him, but only for a moment, and he doesn't try to face off with them anymore. Doc has been taking him to the dog park and socializing him more. I got the training book and clicker, now I just have to read the book and start training him.
Doc has been feeling funky in the head, and I don't know if I'm contributing to it. So I'm trying to keep everything clean and neat and worry free for him. Mostly I'm trying not to be any trouble for him.
Now I've got to go stage an intervention, Chewy is obsessively licking the blanket again.
