It’s hard to believe that my time with Chop is so close to ending of course we Still haven’t found him a home but that Should be no problem since his house Manners are perfect [Music] Knowing that chop is leaving soon it’s Hard for me to resist taking just a few More opportunities to squeeze in a Training session with inertia here and There too especially when it comes to Listening to me around other dogs so While this might look like a training Session for chop at first glance i’m Also still staying focused on inertia Too to help her understand that she Needs to be calm and patient while i Work with other dogs They’re both doing pretty well so far if You’ve ever tried this yourself though You’ll probably agree that inertia is Making it look pretty easy it can take a Lot of practice to teach dogs how to Patiently wait their turn while other Dogs are present i don’t even know where I would be with chop without bark and Super chewer boxes i get one of each of These boxes shipped to me every single Month so i always have a fresh set of Premium toys and really good quality Treats any time i need them if your dog Is anything like inertia they’re Instantly interested in whatever it is That’s in that box these are the treats

I’m using they seem to be doing the Trick i predict this will be a nurse’s Favorite toy i wouldn’t have even known That inertia loved dangly toys unless They had sent this to me so i love that It allows me to discover new things that I would never think of barkbox makes These really original plush toys but Chop on the other hand is definitely More of a super chewer box dog super Chewers for dogs who need tougher toys It’s a day spa theme look at this so This gives them kind of the feel of a Plush toy but it’s extra tough Underneath and even if the cloth goes Away You still have a pretty cool toy you get Treats in both boxes and then you also Get really good chews for your dog as Well all of you can get a free bark box Or a free super tour box or even both When you sign up for a multi-month plan But you’ll have to use my special links And i’m gonna have those in the Description below and i’m happy to Report that chop and inertia seem to be Doing extremely well when it comes to Sharing their toys these days too every Time i think that chop and inertia’s Relationship is as good as it can get They just get even cuter and more Comfortable with one another as Inertia’s dad seeing them interact like This means so much to me i may have

Helped chop with a lot of things but i Will owe him forever for helping me show Inertia how to be more confident around Bigger dogs this is a really interesting Example inertia gets a little annoyed With chop but watch how he responds well Easy that might be enough Yeah she’s a little annoyed yeah but Then So he de-escalates And that’s exactly what i want to see Especially from chop chop is a pretty Big dog who has Kind of a high probability of Accidentally irritating other dogs in The future i mean just due to his size And just his overall energy if nothing Else so to me i think it’s going to be Very important that chop know how to Take a measured correction like that From other dogs and that he take it the Right way without escalating things and Not only did he not escalate things he Actually backed off he laid on his back As if to say sorry i didn’t mean to not All dogs will respond exactly like chop Did and that’s okay so i’m really hoping That we can find him a home with another Playful friendly dog like inertia that He can interact with all of the time a Little while ago we put together a video We posted it on social to really try to Cast a decent sized net in order to find Chop a fantastic home we’re looking for

A really specific type of home for chop I mean he is such an incredible dog but For him to really thrive he’s going to Need someone super committed and Passionate who can keep up with him and Give him the active life that he Deserves and ideally a dog friend who Matches his playstyle too I’m a little discouraged because we have Been struggling to find The ideal home for chop because we Really want him to go to the best place Possible but yeah it’s surprising Because when george’s series went up i Mean there were so many people who Wanted george do you know what i mean Once the youtube series premiered and i Know that’s going to be the case with Chop there’s going to be so many people Who’d be like i’d take that dog in a Second all the more reason to follow us On instagram that is the only place i Talk about that’s where we announce These dogs months ahead of time before They ever make it to youtube so just fyi If you think You might uh want one of our future dogs Follow us there we’ll make it happen He’s amazing look at him It’s been raining pretty heavy all day So he hasn’t had a ton of exercise today But It’s good to know he can chill out On days like this i mean street dog to

House dog legitimately look at him yeah He has so much love and i mean he’s just Such a big heart man it’s amazing We got an email from some potential Adopters that finally sounded like they Could be exactly the family that we’re Looking for they check all the right Boxes i mean they have a fenced yard Great references they also do a lot of Traveling and adventuring which Would be incredible i would love to see Chop out there in the snow maybe Skijoring and steven is he does like Biking in all seasons of force biking i Don’t even know what to call it but yeah It’s like adventure biking and i think Chop would love that he’s like a hex Athlete or like i don’t know he just i Mean this guy does everything i want This to work out i think that they’re Great i really want it to work they also Want a playmate for their other dog Shuggie yeah who loves other dogs and i Would love to see chop end up in a home With another dog that likes to play like He does but first i want steven and Sarah to meet chop and see how they like Them we invited them over so that we Could spend some time together and get To know one another i wanted to make Sure that sarah and steven had as much Time as they wanted with chop i mean This really is a huge decision for Everyone involved and so far i’d say

That chop really seems to like them Everything is going well so far so i Think we should take things outside i’ve Got to say the more time that we spend Together the better i’m feeling about These guys I’m really seeing the potential for chop To have an unbelievable life with sarah And stephen and then it was time for Shuggie their dog to meet chop and i’m Thinking this is gonna go pretty Smoothly chop loves dogs he’s been Hitting it off great with inertia i mean His biggest problem is that he loves Dogs so much so they got their dog Shuggie out of the car and we let the Dogs investigate one another through our Fence first they seem pretty interested In one another and look at those play Bowels after a couple of minutes of this We decided to let shuggy through the Fence shuggie ran in and was really Excited to meet everyone but chop really Wanted to interact with shuggy to say The least then it felt like to me a Nightmare scenario unfolded Here we are in the final stages of this Series and i felt like in that moment Every bit of training i had done with Him was meaningless And even though he didn’t bite shuggie And no harm was done obviously there are Things that could have been done better Here and i think we all need to learn

From this and look i want to be the First one to take responsibility here Anytime something like this happens it Is on me i’m the one in charge and the One who should be teaching chop not to Interact with another dog like that First and foremost i shouldn’t have had Shuggy in a position to not see chop Approaching her i really think that chop Just got way too over excited ran right Over shuggie thinking that he could play However he wanted i think that he just Was unsure i don’t think he was like Feeling vicious or anything you know From what i know of him i don’t i agree With you now i know some of you might be Quick to say that the reason we saw chop Behave like this is because we haven’t Been allowing him to interact in public Very much with other dogs but remember That is by design because there’s a time And there’s a place to interact with Dogs and in public while on leash is not The ideal place to do that so i was kind Of shaken up by this because i really Really wanted to work with these people If they want him if they determine this Is the right dog for them because you Can tell they are two people who are Going to give their life to this dog and Commit to training him and just loving Him and everything you want for in a Family at this point i’m basically Expecting them just to be like bye i’m

Gone yeah thanks right thanks probably Not gonna work out whatever your scary Dog but i’m gonna move on but sarah and Steven stayed to talk with us about what Had happened and they agreed with our Analysis that shuggy was definitely Startled by chop’s less than polite Greeting and that it may have just been A poor first impression and at this Point we really took some time to Reevaluate and determine whether it was Appropriate or even fair to the dogs to Try again and we decided to go about it Differently and give the dogs another Shot once they had a chance to calm down This time we moved much slower and gave Them even more time to get to know each Other through the fence first and this Is much more of what i was expecting That’s a look i’ve seen chop give Inertia a thousand times when he really Wants to play with her this time we put A muzzle on chop to be extra safe and we Brought chuggy into the yard again but We made sure to give her a minute to get Her bearings this time because they were Both looking happy and ready to play we Let them give it a go and this is the Chop i expected to see they did well for Several minutes even though chop was a Little distracted by his muzzle since he And chuggy seemed so much more relaxed And both of them seemed really Comfortable i decided to take off chop’s

Muzzle and just like that they were like A match made in heaven so while things Could have gone smoother this was Definitely a good recovery and look it Doesn’t necessarily go this smoothly Every time in many cases i wouldn’t even Attempt another interaction after an Introduction like this at least not on The same day but every case is different And in this particular instance for the Reasons i mentioned earlier i thought it Was okay to try again in the end they Got along so well but i know from Experience having had a dog who’s been In altercations before that is the one Thing you remember about that day and i Am just really afraid that we may have Messed this up for chop i really want This to work i would sincerely Feel quite guilty if he misses out on a Home like this Because i didn’t prepare him to behave Correctly So we did hear from sarah and stephen And after thinking it over they really Want to adopt chop if it’s best for chop And shaggy as much as we think they’re Great and as much as we love the fact That they love chop what matters most is Whether those two dogs are going to get Along so we thought it would be a good Idea to get some more data and see how Chop and chuggy would do together we Still have to do a home check anyway to

Make sure that they have a great place For chop to live we are on our way right Now to go do a home check for chop to See if this place has everything we’re Looking for for his new home so Yeah i know it’s getting real very Quickly here I just really want to do the right thing For this dog they live near this awesome Park Yeah this is one of the reasons that i Also was excited about these people I mean not that you have to live near a Park to get a dog-like chop but it’s Certainly a plus so i think it’s Really cool here i think he’s gonna do Great here you can see how he can really Run they’ll have to do some on lead Training for a while as he gets Acclimated everything looked fantastic At sarah in steven’s house this is Definitely a new interesting place for Chop and he’s immediately interested in Lots of different things that are at Head level for him i think he’s going to Need a reminder on how to leave things Alone Leave it alone They obviously have an awesome yard for Chop to play in but my biggest concern Is what shuggie will think about him at Their residence we reintroduced them and All i’ve got to say is that chop and Shuggie got along even better than i

Hoped they would it seemed like they Instantly remembered one another and That they were ready to pick right back Up where they left off It’s my favorite thing in the world To watch dogs play After that home check i feel like We’ve just won the lottery in terms of Chops future i think it went super well I love how well he got along with Shuggie it seemed like chop loved the House it seemed like sarah and steven Loved chop they seem awesome Really committed the fence is a little Low out there but they’re instructed and They seem very committed to supervising Him or even having him on lead if Necessary since he was very stable Playing with shuggy their other dog i Would get them in the habit of doing That early in the day and then Let them focus on training one-on-one With chop like in the backyard on a long Lead if necessary with fetch and Obedience and things like that i think It’s gonna work out pretty good yes i Think so too oh i feel so relieved i’m So excited it’s our last night with chop This will be one of their last play Sessions together Today I think he’s come a long way in the last Few weeks I’m happy for him to get as dirty as

Tired as he wants Both of them for that matter Oh god it’s so muddy out here i probably Spoke too soon I mean I was i was going to give him a bath I mean i am going to give him a pound And now i’m gonna have to give it nurse Come on guys here let’s go over here Oh Yeah the yard has gotten totaled we’ve Gotten some rain Look at that see she yelps but she’s Right back in it she doesn’t shut down And go Try to hide or anything her confidence Level Top-notch these days Apparently so Let me see if i can break them up Hey inertia take a break chop come he’s Been getting better about that too been Able to call him off play and chill him Out when he gets too rambunctious it’s So hard to say Goodbye to chop i’m gonna miss him Dearly i always ask myself when i spend Significant time with a dog like this What did i learn from the experience i Feel like chop has taught me how to be More patient he’s reinforced the idea of How loving and genuine dogs are and how Hard they’re willing to try if you just Take the time to show them and be

Patient with them he taught me that i Really like a dog with a floppy ear I do appreciate that what do you guys Feel like you’ve learned From the chop series i mean every dog is Unique in their own way and they just Teach you so much I really want to enjoy every single Minute i can with him we wanted to give Him some fresh air at the park Whoa Please don’t poop on me I gave him a bath you’re gonna have a Good life Sir you’re going to a great place you Know that And now the time has come we’re in the Final moments of our time with Chop right now he’s in the back what are You thinking i feel so emotional i am Thinking about how he’s just starting This like whole lifetime of experiences With this new family and like how they Say your life flashes before your eyes I’m trying to future do that with chop And i feel like it’s gonna be great i Feel so good i’m going to miss them how About you i just really want to go in There i want to focus on them and chop i Really just want to make sure they feel Comfortable and I want to do everything i can To make the transition as smooth as Possible for
