I have been teaching my son to handle, Gypsy, our 1.5yr old Kelpie. He can get her to sit, shake and fetch. But today He walked Gyspy on lead by himself.
Okay so it was just up and down the hallway with me coaching. But he got her walking at heel most of the time. He is still having a little trouble when he asks her to step off, he tends to pull rather than ask.
Gypsy is not happy about these lessons but she is so gentle and patient and bares with it. And I hope soon I can trust both of them on lead, first in the backyard and later on our walks under supervision ofcourse.
I am so proud of my kids, both Human and dog
Also have you had any special 'First moments' with your kids and dogs?
