We recently started working with a new trainer. She hasn't met Sparty yet, but based on everything we have described she thinks he might have an anxiety disorder. We're not too sure ourselves. Certain situations stress him out, but you oughta see him when we go on vacation to South Florida to visit family. He eats up it just like a regular old human tourist.
Strolling through historic neighborhoods, smiling about all the pretty colors.
Taking water breaks and time to sniff the flowers.
Laying out on the patio.
Lounging on luxurious beds in the sunroom.
Enjoying leisurely swims, and daintily fetching pine needles.
Followed by more laying out.
We'll keep you updated on his anxiety issues. At least he laps up the good life as much as any normal dog!
