Nantuket was lying in the middle of his kennel when I came to get him. He did not move when I opened the door, but he took a treat from my hand and allowed me to lift him and place him on the floor. In the pen he allowed me to attach a drag leash to him, and he relieved himself. He wandered in the pen and approached me when I called to him. He allowed me to pet him on the head and body, He continued to take treats from me while I was petting him. He was eaay to get back on the rope, and he allowed me to lift him up and return him to his kennel with no issues. Nantuket seems comfortable with being handled, so I believe he can be walked by all staff members.
5/15: Nantuket came to the front of his kennel when I came to get him. He allowed me to put the rope on him and lift him out of his kennel. I attached a drag leash to him in the pen and he explored. He came over to me when I called to him and allowed me to pet his head and body, but he continued wandering once I stopped. He allowed me to place the rope on him and take him back inside with no issues, and he was easy to return to his kennel.
5/17: Nantuket continues to be easy to remove and return to his kennel. He allows all handling, including being lifted, and he solicits attention when anyone approaches him.
5/18: Nantuket greeted me with a soft body, and allowed me to carry him to the pens. Outside, he investigated a few smells, and marks the area. After a few minutes he laid down next to me under a small patch of shade. He was tolerant of all my handling and affection.
5/20-21: Nantuket remains social and accepts all handling. He demonstrated that he knows the “sit” and “down” commands and softly took treats from my hands. I carried him back to his kennel with no issues.
