Crag Pup

Filed under: Climbing, Dogs — Tags: , , — Miriam @ 9:00 am

There are people who believe that bringing a dog to a climbing area is a bad thing. Dogs get in the way, dogs trample the gear, dogs chew on ropes.

Maybe it’s a sign that we did something right in his socialization that our dog just finds a cool spot and lies down.  And if rope should fall on him during the rapel, well why would that be cause to move. Or rope being pulled up in a way that its rubbing against his face, well I guess the rope wants him to tilt his head slightly.

Cooper with the rope

The comment we heard the most was that he doesn’t make a very good rope bag (a bag we put on the ground to protect the rope from mud and dirt). Maybe in time he will be big enough.

  3. That’s because you were smart enough to get an unadulterated Poodle. Poodles rock.

    • We have just been so happy with him. People are always telling us their poodle horror stories and we see none of those behaviors from him. I feel like every time we meet people hiking, rock climbing or going to the beach we are participating in some sort of poodle public re-education program. Because people seem to think that the reason that labradoodles and goldendoodles are popular is because there must be something wrong with the poodles.

  4. Wow, what a good dog you have. Maybe if I could find one as mellow as yours I’d consider.
    Thanks for stopping by and saying hi.
