Today was Loki's first trip to the Farmer's Market! It was a wonderful place to socialize him. It is a bit overwhelming, so I wouldn't recommend it as the first place to take a little puppy. But for Loki, it was perfect. He was pet by a few people. One woman even had a doggie treat to give him! It's a great place for Loki to practice his manners. In particular, to be able to pass by people without wanting to sniff each and every person. He's pretty good at passing people and ignoring them. He's not as good at passing other dogs nicely, but he's definitely improving. He'll pass by with a little bit of interest, but not straining with all his might to sniff them.
