Stanley 2

Amy Gowertz - Wednesday, May 17, 2017
We just wanted to give you an update on how Stanley's doing! In short, he is doing awesome :). He adjusted to life in our home really quickly, and has continued to be a laid back, go with the flow guy. He was initially a bit unsure of our rabbit Lyla, but after a few meet and greets with her, he's gotten used to her!

Stanley loves going on long walks with us, and then settles down for naps when we get home. He is eating the doggie stew we made for him really quickly when we feed him. He also seems to love the kibble we bought him, so we use it for most of his treats!

Today we went down to the Sue Higgins dog park in the south, which is a fully enclosed park. We initially had him on a long leash to work on his recall (he gets easily distracted!), but then we let him off leash for a bit. He was pretty good! He loves meeting dogs and people, but so far hasn't really been into playing with the dogs. We will see if that changes if he meets the right dog.

Stanley sleeps in our bed with us, and thankfully is not an early riser! We keep looking at Stanley and remarking how incredibly lucky we are to have found this dog! He is everything we were looking for in a dog, and has been almost issue-free so far. We absolutely love him!

We have bought Stanley a new harness, so we can return your harness when we see you next! Finally, we have been working on training. He loves his kibble, so it has been pretty easy to hold his attention so far. There's a link below to a video we took yesterday of Stanley sitting on command!

Thank you again for all of your help. We are so happy with our new dog!
