I took Agis to the cabins we spend time at in winters this weekend. Just me and him. (I got up there and saw no essential travel from red zones; well, I was already there).
He had fun running (he weighs around 50lbs and has for the last 5 months) so we've already started). We got up around 3pm on Friday, unpacked, and went for a run on the nearby side road.
Saturday we went running on a backpacking trail, which was fine until I got distracted by an oncoming backpacker, went over on my already sketchy ankle and heard a crack/pop (I have a history of ankle sprains). Walked out, it loosened up, only to get stiff later. I went into a nearby community and bought an ankle sleeve and an ice pack.
He was being so good too, leading (attached to my waist) but not overly pulling. He was good on the hike out too.
However - he didn't want to cross the bridge at the river, and was noticeably upset. Friday night I had to lead him to his food and encourage him to eat (and drink). Friday I had to carry him into the bedroom and Saturday morning I carried him out. Sunday morning after much to-ing and fro-ing he jumped down on his own.
He's been to these cabins before!
But this was his first time being away from the other dogs. Since I'll backpack with just him sometimes, and do winter camping with just him, it was a good lesson I suppose? I felt terrible how he seemed to be so unsure. I tried luring behaviour I wanted with treats, and to keep up with training, but he was too scattered. Had a blast whenever we were outside though.
