Did your dog turn out like you thought he would?
It’s important to let dogs be who they are.
My dog Remy is still young, and I’m not entirely sure who he is yet but I know he’s very sweet, loves all people and dogs and is in the middle of the pack as far as assertiveness.
And his energy is explosive! My senior pets and I are shocked by it.
When I committed to getting a weimaraner puppy, I knew Remy would be my running and hiking buddy but I also imaged him as obedient, an agility dog and capable of visiting coffee shops and restaurants.
He may still be able to do those things in time but my focus with him is shifting to adventure.
Running, hiking, beach visits, camping, backpacking, perhaps hunting.
If we do obedience work, great. If we do agility, even better. I’m not sure he has the focus for those things. We will see.
Remy is a really great dog. We’ve had him off leash already on a trail walk and it was good to see he checked in with us, kept track of us.
I’m glad he’s growing up. We can go running soon. He can wear a dog backpack soon.
He’s becoming the dog he’s meant to be.
