❤ How did you find each other?
We found Dexter as a puppy just born at Hideaway Kennels. We fell in love with the mustache and the heart shape on his bum!
❤ How can you tell if your dog wants to go outside or if he’d rather stay indoors?
Dexter always goes to the door and has a certain sound he makes when it is time to go outside.
❤ What are your tips when taking your dog on outdoor adventures?
For him walking I always find as flat and compact of a road or trail I can find. It can have hills but it has to be smooth. We now have a K9 backpack which has totally changed the game for us to take him outside deep in the mountains
❤ Where is your favorite place to go together?
Walks around town in the high country. He loves walking main street but I prefer the back country quiet streets
❤ Does he have any quirk or funny habit?
Yes… he does not think he is disabled. He just moves. He is happy, goofy, and has a lot of antics. He appears like a human most of the time. He is really good at getting his nonverbal point across!
❤ What is the naughtiest thing he has done?
Oh… tons…. He got out of the fence right before the accident… but Daily he is a food thief… he will walk upright right next to the counter and stick out his tongue towards the counter as he walks by.. a moving food thief!
❤ How does he cheer you up when you’re sad?
He becomes velcro. If I have trouble sleeping he insists he is next to me or even makes sure he is somehow snuggled right next to me. If I am okay he is in the other utgroom!
❤ What does FriendshipCollar mean to you?
It is so special and really makes me smile every time I see it.
❤ Dexter's TikTok videos are so fun to watch and he seems to be a natural on camera! Does he know if it's filming time?
Yes… he is a showman. He sees the phone and off he goes. He did that for the 4th of July parade too. He hammed it up! He makes me laugh. He gets this swger strutt!!!
❤ Is there anything else you want to share with us about your bestie?
He has quite the personality for sure!
❤ What are your top tips for dog pawrents on helping their dogs live a happy, healthy life?
Train your dogs for really good manners and every day commands. I did not train him to walk upright but he will come when I call, sit, stay, go to his rug, and do what I say. It is so important to have a dog with manners because it makes life so much easier for everyone involved. Also they need outside time, human contact time, a good diet and water at all times!
❤ And the best thing about having your bestie is....
He makes me so happy and always has a very positive attitude. He makes me know we can do anything we stick our mind to!
