We had a trip to Vancouver Island where she got to ride on the ferry and stay in a home with another dog, both firsts for Ebony. She also got to ride in a small motor boat, which didn’t phase her at all. We’re working hard on being calm around other dogs, exciting people, small animals, etc. and on having her restrain herself from nipping when she’s excited or stressed. She’s learned to “find” a small object that is surrounded with kibble on the floor and poke it with her paw or noise while ignoring the kibble or, more accurately, while being very interested in the kibble but leaving it alone!
