Two dogs was not an option. Last year we took both Banjo and Monte; it went well, but not as enjoyable as it should be, mostly due to the puppy.
The winner was Cooper. He enjoyed the attention from the children and adults, when he wasn't gnawing on sticks.
We have decided to relax our expectations of Monte and let him be a dog, free of any stress for a few months. We have been avoiding his trigger points and letting him run free through the meadow. However, it is not a free-for-all, we do maintain basic obedience on our walks and runs.
