Stosh goes to the mall

The security supervisor at our local mall was nice enough to allow me to bring Stosh to the mall before it opens so we can walk with all the other walkers. Today was our first visit and he did really well! He only barked once at the mannequins in the Victoria's Secret window. I expected him to be well behaved but wasn't sure what kind of reception I'd get from the regular mall walkers- mostly older people and moms with strollers. Everyone seemed to enjoy having him there. I wore my CGC t-shirt so people would know he was fairly well trained and one security guard said it almost brought a tear to his eye to see a dog being trained. That was a surprise! Turns out he worked with rescues and had been with AC so saw some sad situations. All in all, we had a great time, Stosh was exhausted from his big outing and practicing commands out in public. It was definitely worth asking if we could go there, we'll make it a regular training routine!

I was getting desperate with this heat! I'm really glad they said yes- guess it pays to ask.

Well, now see you're going to have to dress like that in order to properly socialize him to semi-nude ladies.
