First Solo Walk!

Today was a beaut of a day, so Tomodachi had her first solo walk. Now, by walk I mean that it wasn’t her going out to the approved relief area and sniffing, but an actual half-Mile of walking. Took us twenty minutes. I didn’t require much of her since she is just four months old, however we are going to start working heavily on her not pulling. I didn’t attach the leash to the ‘no pull’ part of the harness, but her next solo walk I definitely will. We worked on ‘sit,’ ‘stay,’ ‘watch,’ and ‘walk.’ today. She is still learning and I believe will get better much faster if we do solo walks a couple times a week. After her walk, which included skating on the ice rink that is our roads, she and Nakama decided to have a wrestling match on the bed. Clearly he missed her while she was gone, but they both need to get used to being alone at times since training them together all the time will not work.

WoofTrax and AARF

One of the walking applications I use is WoofTrax and with this application, whenever I take a walk I have a chance of a donation going to AARF. I will talk more about AARF later, but this application is great! Imagine waking and possibly earning a monetary donation to a non-profit! As you can see, we don’t walk far since my puppy is still rather young, but we do go out because both she and Naka love our walks.
