Unique Socialization Opp..Hot Air Balloon Launch!

For Father's day, the men got a hot air balloon ride..so of course, I bring the dogs along to watch. Had no idea if they would freak out or what. They were great , were interested in watching, but no nervousness! The collie was a little upset that part of his "pack" was becoming airborne!

The puppy was awesome! I am starting to believe that good breeding does make for better nerves! Check that off our list of things to expose the puppy to!! (If anyone was following my thread on how much to attempt "focus" in distracting situations..we did not attempt it today! )

*future reference, when they use the burner to fill the balloon, distance is wise because it emits a high pitched sound that can hurt a dogs ears*
