The Social Dog – Dog Days of Summer


Alfie’s first day home – March 2014

Alfie is an 8 year old  schnoodle  –  a domestic dog,  a cross between a schnauzer and a poodle. We rescued him in March 2014 from Facebook  – he was posted by his owner and their circumstances changed and they were unable to care for him anymore.

I was reluctant to adopt another pet after loosing my 19-year-old Kitty Ms. Meow back in 2011, and it took me a long time to warm up to the idea of having to go through another loss again.  Alfie had a hard time adjusting in our first few weeks with our schedules – long hours away from home during the day we had to hire a dog walker to help….. Alfie likes to pull his leash and bark.

It was decided  that I take the summer off and spend a great deal of time with Alfie getting him on a daily training routine – he is getting better everyday. He still try’s to pull his way around, but when we give him the freedom to go off leash – he becomes more tuned into following, than leading.

Here is what I learned this Summer

1) Alfie is never late for work – he is up at 5:00 am for breakfast and is ready for his walk.
2) Alfie doesn’t judge – he accepts you as you are, so show your pet kindness and respect.
3) Alfie is loyal – with patience and training, you can teach an old dog new tricks.
4) Alfie is a social dog – he loves people, other dogs and cats too…..
5) Alfie is ready to be on his own during the day.. and for me – time to get back to business.
