Tuffy went on his very first field trip this past Thursday to the “Paws in the Plaza” event held by Creek Side in Gahanna Ohio. This was a big ordeal for this new puppy. I was kinda worried how he would react to being around so many different dogs. He had never really been that close to other dogs before.
Well one thing I learned quick. Although, He held his own.. OOPs- and We contained the situation. Tuffy did his best to just sit down and get that dog out of his space. But, he snapped back and cleared the space himself . So, off to doggie school Tuffy will go.
That’s another resource I found during this PET FRIENDLY event. Many places are offering dog behavior classes.

Wow What a fun day in the Plaza with “Paws in The Plaza” in Gahanna, Ohio. We had a blast, made some new friends, met some small business owners with stuff that puppys like me enjoy- got some free treats to try- LOT’S OF ATTENTION and opportunity to socialize and become a better pup.
Loads of Resources for pet owners and plenty of opportunities to see how you can help care for pets not as fortunate as yours.
