Sadie did a much better job walking through the park on Saturday.
I left the treats and clicker at home. She did a little jumping from time to time, but not nearly as bad as Friday. I know it will continue to get better! The park distractions were really helpful!
She loved the water. I let her prance around the stream, but I kept her out of the big pond… I wasn’t prepared for a wet dog. 🙂
I think she is going to love the lake! She almost jumped into the big pond, with all of the water fountains, going for the two ducks. I stopped her just in time!
We met some more dogs and following them really helped her walk normally.
Big Sigh…. it was a truly enjoyable walk!
The Half-Marathon was great! Sadie was alone for almost 5 hours and she did a good job. She still chews her bedding, but it’s not in a destructive way, just more teething. Her bedding is a sheet & towel, so no mess to clean. She was calm & quiet when I came home, no screaming. Yeah!
I rewarded Sadie with an afternoon of backyard play and bully stick chewing. She loved it!
Today & tomorrow we are practicing new commands and tricks. Sadie is in a growth spurt and loves the extra fruit! 😉
