I looked after Russell for 11 days in August. We did regular things like trips to the grocery store, walks around the neighbourhood, and household chores such as mowing the lawn and vacuuming.
He showed very little fear of my gas mower or the vacuum, although at times he would try to bite the vacuum… I think he thought it was a fun game!
I took him once to the off-leash park and he did really well. He had good recall even when he was distracted and having fun playing with other dogs.
I also took him on a bus ride from Calgary to Red Deer. This was a new experience for him, and he seemed a little stressed at first, but settled well once we got going steady on the highway.
