Things have been going pretty well with the dogs. Considering how hyper they all are, we have only had a few, minor accidents. A couple of the dogs have acquired little nicks and scratches here and there. Fortunately, none of the dogs have had any major injuries to their legs or muscles.
We’ve consulted with several leading researchers and have determined that if one of our dogs has injured their leg during their adolescence, that our study could be in jeopardy.
With that in mind, we are juggling how we want to proceed going forward. We know how important it is for all of our dogs to socialize.
Not only do we want them to be well-developed, but we want them to expend all of their energy. These dogs are not meant to be pent up all day and night.
In fact, by exercising the dogs, we’re actually going to be able to get much more accurate results of our booties research.
Think about it – dogs that are in people’s homes aren’t pent up all day. They are running around all crazy. Then their owners decide to go outside and put booties on the dog.
We want our dogs to have a similar growing up experience in order to replicate the real-world scenarios.
We’re really going to have to put our head’s together on this one. I’m sure that we will find a solution!
