Saturday was day 18 of my 30-day challenge to walk Ace every day. He has been doing a lot better this week. I have been walking him for about 10 minutes, then he runs off-leash before walking 10 more minutes.
I use bits of cheese as a reward for good heeling. He has been sitting well and really watching me to see what to do. It makes a difference when I act really excited and really get into what we’re doing. When I start to get bored, he is bored too. I have to take a break from my challenge, because I am in California on vacation.
Ace is staying with my parents in Wisconsin. He gets to run and play in a big yard all week with two other dogs! Lucky Ace.
