Hiking instead of Doggy Park...pics
Well Thor turned a year on Nov. 28, and now that he's not a lil puppy anymore he's going thru some changes. He's starting to challenge me or push my buttons to see what he can get away with, but the biggest difference has come when I last took him to the doggy park, he's being more challenging with other dogs, as far as being more aggressive with them, actually growling, fighting with any dog that gets to close to me, and I actually noticed with puppies he is over aggressive with them if they show any passiveness, I got some great advice from a few of you guys on here, and will be taking him hiking more often. I love seeing Thor running at full speed, I don't keep him on a leach when we go hiking, he enjoys running ahead of me or behind me sniffing n just curious about the surroundings. He enjoys jumping in the ponds or in the mudd....as you can see on the pics. Leaving him without a leach is not a problem, we've encountered other folks on the trails, and as long as I can hear them or see them, all I have to do is whistle, or he actually comes to a complete stop, and waits for me. Thor is 13 months now and his weight is 75lbs., but as you can see he's not over weight, I do understand he is still growing up, and will be filling in more as he gets older this year, so I want to keep him in shape.
