Arlington Pet of the Week: Tyler

Arlington’s new Pet of the Week is Tyler, a 2 year old mini Goldendoodle who loves to dig.

Here is what Tyler’s owner had to say about their life together in Arlington:

Tyler is a 2.5 year old, happy go lucky, mini-golden doodle who has lived in dog-friendly Arlington his entire life.   Tyler is passionate about his long morning walks going to the dog park to play, digging holes and rolling around in freshly cut grass.   If Tyler sees a squirrel or bunny while on a walk, he gets very excited and chases; in fact,Tyler loves to play with acorns and thinks he is a squirrel sometimes and wants to climb trees.  Tyler has taken many training classes in Arlington to see what he enjoys and he really enjoys nose work class where he finds hidden hot dogs!  He never turns down cheese, a glob of peanut butter, chicken jerky, or belly rubs.  Tyler enjoys getting dressed up for Halloween and seeing all the dog costumes during the last week of October.

Many Arlingtonians can see Tyler walking on Bluemont Junction trail where he loves to jump on the rocks on the trail and look at people biking and walking.    He gladly accepts compliments and enjoys saying hi to everyone.  He is very attached to his mom and she can’t imagine her life without him anymore.  He particularly loves that she is home all the time during quarantine. Tyler is deeply loved and has brought so much joy and laughter to his family.
