Today we assessed the fun-loving Kona here at The Fort. He is a curious, ten month old, eleven pound, Shih Tzu and Miniature Dachshund Mix. After entering the Little Roll solo, Kona quickly explored his new found territory. With his nose to the ground and his tail wagging excitedly, he checked out our play-toys and all four corners of the play area.
Kona was quite intrigued to meet other canines. Once they arrived on the scene, Kona greeted them, communicating fairly well for a young canine, albeit rambunctiously lol... Because he is an adolescent dog, Kona, is still learning how to meet, greet, and communicate properly. As the little-dog-pack grew in size, Kona bounced and fluttered from dog to dog, attempting to engage in play. Although he never did end up doing much one on one play, he did burn off some energy by socializing a lot. Kona is welcome to attend Fort Fido. We believe he will become even more comfortable here, and possibly engage in that dyadic (one on one) play, in a future visit. Good work this morning Kona!
Take it easy,
