Because Blue has a few problems out walking, I tried a new techniqe which involved carrying his water bottle and when he was distracted or his focus was on something else it helped him re-focus on my commands.

Challenges today were
  • Free running dogs
  • People crossing his path
  • Someone sat in a shelter minding their own business
  • Skateboarders in the park
But his biggest test was the escaping cat from the bushes.

The bottle was used just once, (the incident with the cat), Blue went from calm to balistic back to calm in two seconds flat.

I do hope this is the start of trouble free walks, today was an absolute pleasure walking him through the park and surrounding streets.
