Sebastian embarrased me at the vet
My wonderful little boy was a terror at the vets office. At 21 wks, he's been there a few time due to arriving full of worms, and getting into things.
The vets office is use to seeing me with my very well behaved group of goldens and he wasn't quite as good on this visit. For some reason we started out with car issues. Granted he's gone on rides with me before and was getting good at sitting nicely in the back. This time, he whined all the way there. When we go to the vets, he decided he was big enough not to wait for me to help him down. He was lucky I had a hold of the leash.
Inside the vets office, he was happy to meet and greet everybody (people wise). This happened to be the time of the morning it was busy in there with a lot of dogs coming in. Little butt started growling and barking at all the company. They had to put us in a room because they were afraid he would start a fight with the growling. Even in the room he was growling at them. Didn't mind all the people, he just didn't like their dogs.
Now, this wasn't the first time he's been around other dogs. I have another golden and he constantly plays with my daughters dog who lives on my property along with visiting the neighbors dogs. The other dogs were a happy, friendly group. Guess my rotten boy was a little scared with so many new dogs in a small place. The vet's office couldn't believe my boy was acting like that since all my others have always been so well trained.
Guess that means more socializing in areas with "stranger" dogs. Not sure if it was because of the small waiting room or if he was just being a snot.
