Ace is already 5 years old and I haven’t been consistent with his training so I’m afraid he is pretty set in his ways. That being said I felt like a fugitive running from the cops yesterday.

“Quick Ace! This way!” Hides among the bushes until they pass by.

While it was a little funny to me at the time I do know it would be less stressful for Ace if he were more accustomed to seeing other dogs without freaking out. Anytime he barks or tries nipping at one I get anxious and it only makes matters worse.

When I do take him to the dog park he refuses to play and just stay next to me the whole time. I’m afraid I’m the cause of these behaviors and I don’t know what else to do about it. Oh well! better luck today I hope.
