I finally was able to fulfill a long-standing dream of mine, which is to take Bubba to Bonifacio High Street. I’ve always been hesitant to do so because he tends to pee on whatever bush or post he sees, which is typical since he’s a male dog. I’ve always used a poop bucket for him, so that’s never been a problem, but the peeing….well…
Anyway, last Sunday there was a Pet Club event hosted by Hobbes and Landes and I figured it would be the best time to take him. I was a little bit iffy because of the weather but I didn’t wanna dissapoint Bubba because he seemed excited about our trip. So I ended up going and I’m glad I did! He was smitten by this 10 month old lab named Misha! Besides that he got to play around with other dogs and also tried some agility training exercises, although he kinda got a bit nervous at first and had a bout of stage fright!
During the event I got to talk to the obedience and agitlity trainer, Domingo Juan, and he told me that despite Bubba’s age, he can still be trained to get rid of that peeing behavior. One way, he said, was to not feed and limit water intake the day before to the day i take him out. Also, behavior modification can help. I am quite interested in enrolling Bubba in his training classes but he requires 3-4 sessions a week, and I can’t commit to that schedule because of work.
After the tiring exercises, I treated Bubba and my brothers to Fridays. Of course we ordered ribs because of him!!!!
One thing I noticed, however, is despite how massive Bubba looks, he’s tiny compared to purebred labs
