So i took Achilles to a dog park...
He loved it and i have to admit that i had a good time as well.
Achilles suprisingly played nice with the other dogs no rough housing or tackling. He followed 2 boarder collies around for about 2 hours, chasing them while they chased a ball. Each one of the boarder collies corrected him and achilles knew to back off. He played with a huge/over weight pit-mix and seemed a lil nervous when the dog ran up to fast, he would quickly drop down into submission. Then about after 3 hours at the park a 15week german shepard shows up hyper as achilles usually is and they ran around together but achilles was already drained.
Another positive part was that achilles finally met a kid (<4), im happy it finally happen cause he was rreally scared and freaked out by here. I would tell him its alright and make him sit so she could pet him.
Achilles is still shy of other people though, i thought we were over that already.
As for the dirty parts... The back section of the park was flooded by a broken sprinkler.
Right after he decides to plop down in the mud and right before he does an army crawl.
It was somewhat embarassing having the only dog playing in the mud until achilles got one of the "TRAINED" boarder collies to follow; the owner was not happy.
