We just adopted a wonderful, 8 month old Lab mix....Lilly. We have had her just under a week. For the most part she has WONDERFUL manners although she does have a few "boredom" activities that she have started up (digging, ugh). I am attributing this to boredom so I want to find new ways to give her fun.
Currently she sits, we are working on stay. She walks on a leash well and sticks pretty close by at the leashless dog park and comes when called most of the time, with a little more work I'm sure it will be all the time. She doesn't chase the cats, is good with my 15 month old son and is pretty laid back. So I'm thinking I can probably involve her in my daily trips to visit/ride my horse, Cinny but I don't know the best way to introduce barn activities to her.
Cinny, is used to dogs and I ride regularly with my friend who brings her Aussie on trail with us ALL the time. I see no problem with the horse accepting Lilly. I just don't know how to introduce Cin to Lil. I think it would be really great to have her go on trail with us, watch me muck, etc etc and our stable does allow for dogs as long as they stick to you like glue. Does anyone have suggestions on the best way to get these two together without a ton of Drama?
