Adventures of Arya

There’s nothing I love more than to go out and about with my family.  I may be young, but I have experienced many places in the great outdoors!  Mom says this will help me feel comfortable with new experiences and people….I LOVE both of those things!  Ever since I was old enough to explore (and properly vaccinated), mom took me anywhere and everywhere that dogs were welcome to go.  I thought you guys might like me to share some of the great adventures I’ve already experienced!

First outing at buzzberry
My very first outing to my favorite hangout, Buzzberry!

My first outing was to Buzzberry Bistro, which is now my absolute favorite hangout.  Mom loves to go for their coffee, and I like to go for the people and, of course, the Buzzbones that they give me every time we visit!  They make homemade, natural treats, and you’ll hear no complaints from me!  They simply rock!

One of my other favorite places to visit is O.H.S.O.  These guys are VERY welcoming to four-legged friends!  I have been to one of their locations twice – once for a pit bull rescue and awareness event!  Their new location even includes an awesome grassy area for dogs to play, AND a custom doggy drinking fountain!  I’ve had some GREAT times meeting lots of dogs and people at O.H.S.O.

One of my most exciting adventures, was when my mom brought me with her to California to stay with her parents!  I was such a good girl in the car for the six hour drive, and I was a very well behaved guest at my grandparent’s house.  I couldn’t begin to tell you about all the fun I had in California!  I got to meet lots of great people who were so kind to me.  My Uncle William loved spending time with me – he and I became fast friends.  I also got to spend time with five year old, Elijah, who played with me, and was so much fun!  He got to walk me at the mall, and I was so good with my leash manners!

We also got to go to the beach, and I wasn’t sure what to think about that!  The ocean was a little scary, but I REALLY liked watching the sea gulls, and seeing all the people and dogs passing us by.  We even stopped for some fish and chips on the way home!

Another great way mom gets me out and about is through training.  I went to a group puppy class with my awesome trainer, Brenda, at Awesome Mannered Canines.  I got to make some great two and four-legged friends, as well as learn all my basic commands – and some more advanced things too!  Besides training classes, mom and I spend a lot of time training together at pet stores, parks, and anywhere with lots of distractions!  I always have a great time working with my mom!  I am currently taking more classes with Brenda so that I can practice all the tasks I need to master in order to pass my Canine Good Citizen test!  My friends, Prada and Penny, join me every Sunday as we work on more advanced tasks – we’ve all been working hard on our extended down-stays!!

I have so much fun going places with my mom, and I strongly recommend that all pet parents get out with their four-legged kids.  Mom says it really helps build the bond between us…..I agree!  We have so much fun, and I love making friends with everyone we meet.  I have already learned how to behave when I am out and about, and that really helps me show people that pit bulls can be great members of the community, too!

Thank you for stopping by, and please continue to show support for pit bull education and awareness!

Love and licks,

Arya
