I’ve mentioned many times before, I think it is so important when you have multiple dogs, to give each of them some one-on-one time. You can take this time to practice obedience skills, get exercise, enjoy the weather, or just cuddle on the couch! Today, though the day started off cold and rainy, it quickly turned into absolute gorgeous weather! So, I decided to take Oscar out for a walk to enjoy the day. He and Lucy are very bonded, and often react to things based off of the other’s reaction, whether it’s dogs nearby, joggers, bikers, etc. It’s important to me that the dogs know how to be independent. It is good for them to have outings on their own, to be confident in their independence. It also strengthens my bond with them, when we have time to be together. I also practice obedience with Oscar throughout our walks, including “sit”, “heal”, “look at me”, “come”, etc.
I enjoy a cold winter day, just as much as I enjoy a hot summer beach day…but if I could live in a place where the weather is 95% of the time exactly like it was today, 60 degrees sun shining with white fluffy clouds in the sky, I would move there in a heartbeat!
Tomorrow will be Lucy’s day to have some one-on-one time, hopefully the weather will be just as lovely! Until next time, have a wonderful day my friends!
