Training: Dog 'Spring Training'
As the weather is warming up, all of a sudden other dogs, people, and drunken guys wearing leis and grabbing at the pooches are everywhere. And this is exciting for our dogs.
They used to remember how to act appropriately, but since we were facing this for much of the winter, they have forgotten:
1) We Treat Every Walk Like a Training Walk
ignoring Juliet barking in the balcony above.
2) We Practice the Tricks we Know Already
3) We Desensitize them to the Action
These are just some things that have worked for us with our dogs. What are some other strategies for keeping your pooches behaved on walks?
