It was their turn to go for a walk together this morning 🙂
We vary who goes off lead (they can’t go off lead together yet – Kasper’s fault, he’s still learning not to be OTT or grumpy with her!!) so today Pixie went off lead with her longline dragging, and Kasper stayed on his longline.
I am really starting to work on Pixie’s recall now, and a positive association with her name being called and coming towards the person.
Hopefully you can see how great she is getting at this; when we first got her, recall to her meant someone was angry with her and she was going to be punished.
Video of them on the field with Pixie off lead, and walking back both on lead.
I also managed to take some photos of Pixie wearing her new nervous harness outdoors on a walk.
We were hanging about in this carpark a good few minutes as there was a child of about 8 who kept looking back at our dogs, walked around the corner, but didn’t pass through the gate. We knew he was hiding just around the corner, most likely in the hopes of greeting our dogs, which was NOT happening, so we hung about a minute or two then my partner went to ask him to move along politely and said our dogs weren’t friendly 🙂
So now Pixie has a nervous harness, a nervous lead, a sleeve that says ‘KEEP YOUR DISTANCE’ and a sleeve that says ‘IN TRAINING’!
After the excitement of the walk, Pixie decided to lie on my lap in a very ladylike manner bwahaha 😀
