    Default A trip to Bunnings

    What better way to work through the second fear period with the Poodle Monster than a trip to Bunnings when it's busy .

    We met some idiots at the start who were saying very nasty things about Finn and me (Just because he looks poodly). They thought I couldn't hear them (which I couldn't) but my Mum was standing right behind them listening to every word... Ah well, their loss they're not willing to give Poodles a chance!

    Despite that, we got lots of complements, Finn got lots of cuddles, he was perfectly behaved, no jumping up, no lead pulling, just relaxed. There was a couple of times he was a bit unsure, but a little encouragement and he quickly recovers and re-gains his confidence

    I love walking him around and hearing little kids yell out "Mum look, there's a POODLE!!". All children just love him, it seems kids aren't judgemental like adults can be. Kids just see a happy fluffy dog for what it is instead of listening to stigma they hear about the breed.

    Oh Finn also decided to lay down in a patch of mud in the garden centre. So my freshly washed Poodle had a big brown patch on his hip, lol I really shouldn't be surprised!

    I thought they would! My mum went in first to double check what the rules are with dogs (I haven't muzzle trained Finn so was planning to put him in a trolly if they said he needs to be muzzled). But they said I could walk him in without a muzzle, no problems

    I think it might be because my local bunnings is a fairly small one out in the country.
