This won't be until the end of March, so I have quite a bit of time to prepare =3
He's never really been on a tie out
, but he's chewed through a leash before when he was tethered to my brother (brother wasn't paying attention...:facepalm
. We were thinking about getting a stake and chain for him.
This will be tent camping for us, but we have a HUGE 10 person tent with 3 partitions, plus we're taking his crate. When we've gone on overnighters before, as long as he has his crate, he sleeps fine. The campsite shouldn't be terribly crowded, and we have a black 'wall' that will surround it, so other people walking by shouldn't bother him much. As for hanging out, I think as long as he's with me, he'll be great. he likes to greet people, be pet and all that stuff. When he's alone, I'm thinking about putting him in his crate in the tent
with the window open so he's not watching everything and will be able to calm down.
He's a little hyper in crowds, which is why I got the prong. He loves people so much xD He can be iffy with dogs, but it's not all the time, which is why I'm considering a muzzle.
I'm hoping he'll do great!! I wonder if setting up the tent in a yard somewhere and just sleeping in it with him a couple nights would work...
Haha, i'm worried about the over stimulation as well, though I think with a few nap times/calm times, he'll adjust okay. He's been a trooper about everything else we've thrown at him (moving, shooting, horses, 3 hour car rides, random over night trips, Thanksgiving with 30 people, staying at my parents house, etc). Crossing my fingers this won't be any different!!
