Marleau is a male Keeshond and my first keeshond guest.
I watched Marleau twice before, for a couple of hours each, for a trial run, and those visits went well. The owners were happy, so they booked a weekend stay for Marleau.
We had a good weekend, but Marleau was very distant and timid. He laid in the entry way most of the time. He wasn’t my typical cuddly doggy guest. I tried to get him to play, but he wasn’t interested.
I had a friend come over to help me do stuff around the house. All the sudden, Marleau’s personality came out and he was happy, excited and playful. It was so great to see. After my friend left, Marleau was a little better with me, but then went back out to the entry way.
I would definitely watch Marleau again!
