Bodi went potty as soon as we got home this morning. He was a little anxious being in a new environment so he was a little hesitant to do anything. I took him on a long walk to get any of his nerves out and let him have some play time with me so we could get to know each other. Bodi is such a sweet boy! He did end up pooping but his stool is still watery like you mentioned this morning. We also had our first lesson where we worked on his heel and place. We kept the lesson short since I didn’t want to overwhelm him. He ate a couple of bites of his kibble, I added chicken to sooth his stomach. Overall Bodi is a really good boy and is taking a much needed nap!
