This weekend my dad and step-mom had a huge party at their new house. They invited family, friends and their neighbors little kids kind of crashed it, altogether there was around 30+ people, including about a dozen kids, and 2 other dogs.
My uncle also brought his 2 new dogs that were around a year old, and OH boy what a meeting they had. As soon as we got there, both his dogs rushed up barking and snarling at us and Faust just about pee'd on himself. Luckily they were on a portable invisible fencing thing, so had to stay in one area. Faust learned very quickly what that area was and gave it a wide berth, since he was allowed offleash after we'd been there about 5 minutes. lol Though I admit he might have pranced his ball past them once or twice when playing fetch. However, when I was inside I guess one of them stole it away from him and he just got up and waited for my Uncle to take it away from them and give it back. (Shows you how well Jay keeps an eye on things.
Some of you might remember Faust's story from when he was a pup and had aggression issues towards strange kids? Well this weekend just proved again how well Behavior Modification works since he was playing fetch with most of the kids there and was quite at ease with all the screaming & shrieking kids there.
I also got many comments on how well behaved Faust was and what a sweet boy he was towards everyone. My Aunt even fell in love with him and was sneaking him food all day. She confided in me that she used to be petrified of all dogs, ESPECIALLY GSDs since she got attacked by one when she was younger. So that was a big step for her.
