30-day challenge: Take your dog to 30 new places (PetSmart)

Today was the second day of my 30-day challenge to take my dog to 30 new places. Today Ace and I walked to PetSmart, a 3-mile round trip from our apartment. Ace wore his pinch collar today and no backpack. He walked very well, except when he became fixated on a rabbit.

Getting to our final destination was actually more of a new experience for my mutt than the actual store. Normally we walk in residential areas or a park. Today we walked on a busy street filled with businesses and traffic. We were on sidewalks the whole time, with many distractions such as noisy car washes, restaurants and a grocery store.

I made Ace sit before entering the store, and he was a good boy inside, calm and busy inspecting all the products as we walked through a few isles. We even checked out a few cats available for adoption.

I guess this is my free advertisement for PetSmart. It should be paying people like me.

Taking part in this challenge? Let us know how it’s going.
