Successful meet and greet

After a forced month off from our socialization training(sprained ankle for me,broken shoulder for hubby) I took Samson along while hubby went to rehab to stroll around the sidewalks and parking lot of the strip mall.I expected him to be quite anxious around all of the folks coming and going,delivery trucks,and rattling shopping carts.But to my surprise he was totally cool with everything!In fact every person who passed by us on the sidewalk he wanted to bump his muzzle against their leg for a quick sniff.He sat quietly while I talked to one gentleman for several minutes,and was able to focus and carry out all of his basic obedience commands.He was alert and very slightly nervous but overall did a fantastic job today!We've been working for the past five months as often as possible on his reactivity to approaching strangers and I was pretty bummed about having to put things on hold.I'm wondering if he's just developed a closer bond and sence of trust in me while we've been stuck at home playing and training these past weeks.Whatever the reason I am a proud Mom today
