Childproofing Your Service-Dog-in-Training in Baja

Last night we headed out for dinner at Anamar in Primo Tapia with the year-old Rottweiler puppy in tow.

Normally when we visit, the restaurant is mostly empty, but last night there was a large family group at a table in the back that we didn't notice before going in.

When we entered, we were greeted by shrieks of "Doggie, doggie, doggie!", and then we were swarmed by a group of six children all appearing to be under the age of ten.

I was ready to fling myself down to block the kids from the puppy, but he simply sat down calmly at hubby's side and gazed at the group.

It was as if a glass wall rose up out of the floor between us and them. The kids became quiet, didn't try to touch him and then returned to their table. We had no other interactions at all during dinner.

My Filete Veracruzano (fresh fish filet in a light tomato sauce with bell peppers, capers and green olives) dinner was delicious and hubby had his favorite Garlic Shrimp (al Mojo de Ajo).

  1. Wow, what a GREAT dog!

    Glad to hear you had a lovely dining experience. I hope you gave your four-legged dining companion a few extra pats on the head and some delicious dog-friendly vittles. Stories such as this make my day. :)

      I have suspected for some time that our young lad is an Alpha dog in the making.

      He proved that last night with his composed and controlled manner during the chaos.
