I adopted Kaden from an animal shelter. When i first got him, he was very very timid and quite. He did not bark until about two weeks after I got him. He is a very active dog and i take him to the park, walk him around my neighborhood, and things like that. He never barks when other dogs are around and he doesn’t like when dogs bark at him. If a dog barks at him he will run back to me and wait until we walk away or the dog does. But he does interact with dogs. If he deems the dog acceptable and none- threatening then he will engage. The main issue im having with him is that his nails grow so fast. I have had him for two months and had them trimmed twice and he has an appointment to get then cut again in a week. He loved to play so his nails hinder that sometimes. Training him has been hard ao i would definitely insist to have a professional train your labrabull.
