Mickey continues to function really well in the home and continues to grow in is coping skills outside of the home. He absolutely loves other dogs - polite ones :) - and is safe with cats. He loves to chew on bones and play fetch. One of his favorite activities is playing in water. We taught him how to swim in my family pool and he was jumping in by the end and couldn’t get enough. Mickey is still more reserved when entering a new situation but with reinforcement and support his adjustment period is shorter and shorter. He went to the vet recently with super high value reinforcement (wet dog food in a squeeze tube) and rocked his visit! Walked on the scale, greeted staff, got a blood draw. Super proud of him. He went with his cat friend Chill so that helped :)
We have nicknamed him ‘Moo’ because if he is waiting in his crating he makes a sound like a cow haha. He is truly one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met.
