10/7 A minor miracle

I walked Quincy around the block. No big deal. Been done many times before.

But I also walked Cookie around the block. I used the techniques my pal taught me. Cookie pulled on the leash every now and then, but it was nothing compared to the psycho pulling she usually does. Amazing. And then, after a bit she stopped totally stopped pulling and just walked at my side. The exception was when we got to my driveway. Then she got semi-psycho again.

When she pulled I stopped and corrected her. She waited patiently until I started moving again.

Yes, it was a minor miracle. Now I have no excuse to not walk the dogs.

Glad to hear she is adjusting to walking on a leash. It makes all the difference when they know how to walk on a leash and will hopefully make your walks more enjoyable again.
