I just came back from Dora's walk. She is satisfied and so am I
Unfortunately it was two hours. Maybe 15-20 minutes of it was actually walking. I was using the 'stop when shes pulling' method, which is why it took so long.
I was out with a friend (with the lab pup) and we met loads of older dogs along the way. I emphasize (sp?) older because the second Dora growled at them, they put her into place. Maybe a little stomp of the foot, but she immediately shut up and sniffed them quietly. This evening was a great step for Dora. We met a 10 month cocker spaniel along the way and Kailey (the cocker) started playing with Ollie (the lab pup). Dora just sat and watched, and at one point it looked like she wanted to join in! She sorta leaped towards them, tail wagging, but then they tumbled her way and she jumped back. The older dogs did her wonders... the two other dogs we met on the way werent met by growls, but quiet and very wary sniffs. I'm proud.
But it looks like Dora's developed a habit of pulling on the lead... this time in front - I think shes begining to like walking!Oh, and I'm gonna read over the TOT thing, and try it out tomorow
Well thats enough of an update, I'll leave you these two photos also:
thats me on the right... can you spot Dora?
