Thanks for understanding.
Just a quick question ...
How do you know your dogs' limits? Were they pushed ?
And if so, would I be wrong to assume that you would never push them again.
Could we both agree that I've now learned about Kira's limit with regard to parties?
After all, I did learn that dog parks are off limits, and I now avoid them.
Carmen, I completely understand and don't disagree. I'm not arguing any points. I recognize my dogs' shortcomings to the best of my ability.
My point with Doggiedad, was HOW does one know they have a " go everywhere dog"? Many people take their dogs to dog parks, until something happens. Doggiedad seems 100% certain that nothing could happen. Why is he so confident?
Is it genetic? From what I've learned from you and many others, it might be.
Is it the handler or owner? Did I do this to my dog? Seems like a good possibility.
Now to backpedal over the past year, I've done tons of "go everywhere" socializing with Kira. She has no problem going everywhere.
She does have her limits, such as dog parks , and the now obvious loud parties.
My point is how would one determine a dogs' " go everywhere" personality, without actually being out in that situation?
Is this something an average dog owner should be able to determine, without pushing the limits?.
I occasionally meet up with her trainer from her beginner class, and her trainer thinks she's amazing. She would never know Kira's "other side " without actually witnessing it.
