I think that covid world dogs are a lot like covid world babies: they have their parents with them more, yet weren't able to do certain things that they would otherwise have.
We're going to see a lot more children and dogs with separation anxiety coming up.
Thyri is learning to become social now, but since she was born only a couple of weeks before the first lockdown, she saw only a couple of people with any regularity, and most people were wearing masks.
When she was a little younger, their neighbor would wave to her, and say hi, from a distance, and she'd cry. Thankfully, that's passing as she sees more people.
In fact, she met her first child last week. Ddil's brother from out of state brought along his 11 yo Dd. They both thought that was the best thing ever.
I worried, a year ago, what would happen if I got a new pup to train as a SD. They just weren't able to socialize and get into the public situations that they needed to, the past year.
Well, it's not a lot different for other dogs. Yours began to meet people and such, but Chelsea's career has been sidelined.
Or, they just want to be with mom all the time!
I'm about to update on the dog that I was looking at...spoiler alert, the other people took him.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
