I love taking my dog for her regular walk but tonight she was a pain to walk. She kept pulling and worse … she kept darting onto people’s lawns to grab sticks and branches or other things.
She was startling me when she’d run or dart to grab things. I guess at first I thought she was either startled or being chased so that scared me .. then when I realized that she’d just about pulled me off my feet and scared me just to get a stick behind a metal building .. well, that made me mad.
It was also kind of cold and windy out this evening when I took her out so our walk wasn’t quite as long as I’d planned.
I think one of the problems is that my husband and I have very different styles or rules when walking her .. my husband used to try to be strict with her when walking her but I think he’s slacked off lately or else my dog doesn’t respect his authority (I sound like Cartman from South Park now LOL) so when he’s been walking her for several days and I talk over she just tries pulling me all over the place .. but after I’ve walked her for a few days she walks by my side calmly without pulling .. so nice. Soon enough … I’ll be the only one walking her.
