Sunny is continuing to do well! He went on his first boat ride a few weekends ago with two other dogs (both girls) and had a great time! He loved being on the boat, especially as there were lots of snacks being passed around!
He also got to try out swimming after the boat ride, which he wasn’t a big fan of. We think he might do better once the water warms up and he can see some other dogs out swimming around!
Sunny has been playing outside with the two girl dogs that he has come to know well. He will chase after them trying to keep up while they play fetch, but never seems to be fast enough to get to the ball first seeing as they are border collies he is racing! After a while he usually goes to lay down in the yard and watches them run. We still haven’t been having very successful interactions with male dogs but he has been doing well with females.
Sunny can be dog reactive so he will need a fenced in yard or a home out in the country on a few acres. He should be the only dog with no cats in the home.
