Today is Sunday 3rd April

After breakfast, we decided to take Maya up on the prom for her walk. My feet are still tender, but I am trying to walk at least twice a day as exercise helps as well as the cold compress.
It’s the first time we’ve both walked her for about a week and we took an extra lead so that we could let her explore the field that runs behind it. We intend to use that for recall training at a later date when there’s no-one else around. Our plan will be to use the long training lead with one of us at each end and Maya on a running lead in between. However, for today, we were concentrating on lead work, socialising with people and dogs alike, and also introducing her to heights as the sea defense wall that runs alongside the beach is quite high, definitely too high for her to jump down from.  She has shown a fascination for walls (as Maggie did always wanting to peer over the top) so today Hubby walked with her a little way on the wall, walked back and then sat on the wall with her.

It has become automatic (well, 90% of the time) for her to sit when we stop, so she looked quite impressive watching people approach. One couple asked if they could take her picture and she was so good for that. She did get over excited at one stage so we made her sit and wait, then as there was no-one around, she was able to focus on us and how we wanted her to respond.
Overall, on a scale of 1 to 10, our walk today was a good high end 8.

This is the beginning of  ‘The Wall’ and the prom dips down as you can see better in the picture on the right.

Have a good day and keep safe everyone.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Looks a little chilly there. Glad Maya is getting better at walking on the lead and with the socialization!
