I am just so pleased with Baron's progress! He is doing really well on walks around the local area. We will be starting his new beginner obedience class in a couple of weeks. When we go for a walk and someone else is on the sidewalk I move to the nearest driveway and have him sit quietly by my side and let the person pass. Sometimes it might be a family with a child in a stroller! He sits calmly! Before he would have been so frightened by anyone or anything he had not encountered before. I think he is understanding that he can trust me to protect him! Sometimes the people with the baby in a stroller will stop and say to the child... look at the doggie! I am right next to an elementary school and when the kids go outside to play I take Baron and just sit on the front porch to let him hear and see them from a distance. I think he would be overwhelmed if he was right by the fence seeing them dart about the playground. But, if I try at a distance he seems interested to watch. The attached picture shows how interested he is! I am so proud of him. Especially since he was not brought up with them.
