The day dawned lovely and sunny, but there was a chill on the air.
Our walk this morning was just after 8am so sadly we caught quite a few other dog walkers making it a little hard and a battle of wills at one stage. Eye contact is important when dog training (as confirmed to us yesterday) so Maya not only got told loudly to SIT when she was pulling hard, but I grabbed her face and brought it level to mine staring her right in the eye telling her she would behave. It worked………….. for two minutes.
Who? me?? I’m a good girl!!!
Anyway, we walked along the road down to the clubhouse then back up along the prom, keeping her on my right as suggested yesterday. She is brilliant walking down slopes, and things did improve, so you never know.
We met up with Kela and her owner walking round the block so joined them with Hubby taking Maya (on the right) and me his second stick. It worked out pretty well and we all had a cup of tea, the two dogs sharing the water bowl then lying down quietly each in their own space.
Hubby has done a repair on our gate as they have both dropped so it’s been difficult to line up the bolt to lock it. We have unwelcome visitors to the town again and dogs have been stolen from gardens, cars and from outside shops around this time in the past.
