Bowyer came camping with us in Jasper national park for 5 days. Who knew that pretty much every campsite would have at least one dog?! He met a ton of other dogs and started to show progress in learning to say ‘hello’ to them and then disengage/re-engage with me. Bowyer also took in the Canada Day parade in Jasper, and was a really good boy despite the sirens, noisemakers, tossed candy, and many barking, excitable dogs around him. Currently Bowyer is learning the difference between “heel” and “side.” We’re also working on improving his placement and commands from a distance.
