There's a great dog park near our house, complete with pond just for the doggies (only open in the warmer months). The boys have always loved going there but I always had trouble with them listening to me. When they went to their trainer's for their last board and train session, we asked her to work on dog park behavior with them. Now they're a pleasure to take there and listen to me when it's time to go or when they (namely Fitzgerald) get a little too rough with a puppy or smaller dog. I recognize people and dogs each time we go but haven't ever really talked to anyone. Not sure if anyone recognizes us. Today someone asked what Fitzgerald's name was--it made me feel like we're being accepted into the park community. A little thing, I know, but it made me proud that we're getting accepted in the "pack!"
