I've just been out with Bailey for about an hour now.
I decided to go in to the park, gave him some water and a guy came over to me (I'm presuming he's a behaviorist) and asked if it was alright to walk along with me as he was trying to socialize an 11 year old dog, I think it was a jack russell cross. There were other dogs there who he tried it out with, but with Bailey the most.

Well anyway, the owners have been scared to walk him, so he's helping them

Well he also helped me a bit with training Bailey to walk to heel.
I let him walk around the park with both dogs, helped introduce the jack russell to Bailey with a muzzle on and then without.

And then I also let him walk the dogs down this very long street which is near my house. And Bailey for the first time in his life just walked by his side.

A friend of the owners was there and she's training to be (____________) I can't actually remember what she said, but I swear it began with a B lol.

And she wants to use Bailey as a case study in October and will do three treatments on him and in return has said the guy can do more training with us.

result!! wtg.

i always try and let mine socialise with pups as often as i can.

but a couple of days ago i took him to a different park cos of the rain, let him off as usual and a guy with a spaniel told me to put him on lead as his (off lead) spaniel was nervous of other dogs.

i politely said ........ off mate , put yours on and pay the price for an undersocialised dog.

i immediately recalled mine and he came to me so i could show him how a pup compared to his mature dog.

i was absolutely fuming.

he didnt have a lead with him as his house backed on to the park so he was illegal anyway lol.

i was getting angrier and angrier the more i thought about it so i went before i cound say anything more.

Ohh wow, I would have been angry too, your dog is the one that's well socialised and trained, you have every right to keep your dog off lead if you know it will do no harm to other dogs.

What a very irresponsible owner that guy must be.

I've had a letter this morning from Jo, who was there with the trainer at the park.

She is training to be a Canine Bowen Therapist.

The Bowen Technique is a gentle, non-invasive, light-touch, holistic modality that promotes healing, pain relief, and general body rebalancing. It aims to support and boost the natural healing capabilities of the body.

Well anyway, Bailey is healthy, but she needs to practice on a variety of dogs to gain experience. This will happen in October, but we need my Vet to give the go ahead and say he's healthy and sign a form, which I can get done in September when he goes for a check up and his booster, so may be able to start it a litter earlier.
