We expect so much from our dogs.
- Don’t forage for food
- Greet people calmly
- Remain quiet when the UPS guy arrives at the door
We’re lucky they don’t crack up under the strain.
That’s why I try to give Honey time to walk off-leash every day. Well, not quite off leash. I let her drag it so I can catch hold of her quickly in an emergency.
Here we are walking beside the creek in our neighborhood. The cries in the middle? A cheeky squirrel caught Honey’s eye.
It took a lot of work to teach Honey to look to me when we see a squirrel. Glad to know it has paid off.
Do you have a favorite place to walk your dog off-leash? Or is your best friend a wanderer that needs a fence for safety?
