I had to take Eddi to the vet for vaccinations today, he's been 4 times already, the last time just before Christmas, when he barked - alot. Today, he didn't bark, he whimpered and trembled, but he didn't bark. He didn't snap or growl when the needle went in.(So proud of him) On the second walk, there are two dogs always behind a gate, if the gate is closed, I can pass, sometimes, like today they hear us from behind their house and they barked. Eddi always barks at them if they bark first. I brought him down the riverbank, told him to find the sausage and he barked once. Not long after, he looked back from where we'd come, I could tell by his face that he's seen something, I looked back and there was a large Husky about 60 metres away, I said 'let's go' another ploy I use, then a bit later 'find it', for the sausage, he looked back a few times but didn't bark. We finish the day on a high!!!! (I started a new thread because credit where credit is due. Yay may dog).
