Boaz is now an adult
Boaz is now 2.5 years old and weighs just under 130 pounds. Yes, he has turned into a big boy, even bigger than a normal male Giant Schnauzer. We waited until he was almost two years old before having him neutered so his bone plates would close. The neutering did seem to calm him down a little. He has become nicer around people. Not that he was bad before, but he would sometimes get a little too excited around visitors. Now he calms down pretty quick.
I’ve also begun to let Bo pull me and my wheelchair frequently, especially when I need some help up a slight ramp. He does this very willingly and easily. For now, I’ve been just holding his collar, but I’m going to get a proper harness soon so he can’t be hurt. He walks very fast when pulling me and yet I’ve had little trouble getting him to turn the way I want to go. I take him in Lowe’s and in the tractor supply store and he is great. I’ve taken him in pet stores too, but he does sometimes show a little too much interest in the dog treats. Once, when he was younger and his groomer was at the back of a pet store, I would end up buying a treat he stole every time I took him for grooming. – lol.
