Kapena finally likes the beach!

Post by DaHawaiianDS » Sun Aug 20, 2017 1:43 am

We took a stroll through the forest to play at the boat ramp behind our house. Some of you might remember my worry that he was so adverse to water, hated the pool, baths, the hose, and rain. I thought it was life's big joke that I named a dog that hates water Kapena which is "Captain" in Hawaiian. But guess what! He just needed to do a little growing! I'm glad we didn't force him, it's great watching him build his confidence! He had a blast digging in the sand, too!

Tell us about yourself: Hi,
Short and sweet here- I'm a father of 2 boys, a carpenter, hunter, runner. We have extensive experience with sled dogs, shepherd mixes, a wolf hybrid, and our current dog a 95# long haired Shiloh Shepherd. I'm looking for a more energetic dog that had the same intelligence and trainability. I'm interested in advice, opinions, and a place to share experiences.

I edited the video we took. Here's a link to it. The pics don't do it justice, he went nuts!

Awesome! I thought your last still shot caught his emotional state pretty well! My Shiloh shep. plows her head under water( like Kapena did to the sand), splashes up, then bites at the splashes! En(now 2) just finally agreed to go in deep enough to get her but wet.
