Yesterday it was my sons t-ball practice and I thought it would be great to bring Maverick along to see how well he is around constant distractions. Its a huge park with about 5 t-ball teams, parents and other kids constantly running around, there were also 2 dogs at the park that came after we were already there. I had Maverick on the Starmark, which is a new collar I started using as I always used the prong with him and my other previous dogs. He still walked nice, still sat when I gave the command and also did his down. Although when the other dog came about 30 feet from him and he saw him he sat up and started barking and his hair stood alittle. It didnt seem like an aggressive bark and he didnt break his sit, I turned him around and had him heel in the other direction for a short walk then back again to where we were watching the kids and he was fine. I did notice though he pulls more being on the Starmark then on the prong, and I have to give him a harsher correction then the usual pump. For a 6 month old pup I say he did pretty well and was very social with other people and kids that wanted to see him.
