Ace visited a kids’ baseball game during day four of my 30-day challenge to take my dog to 30 new places.
The boys’ baseball game was distracting to Ace because there were balls flying everywhere and he is a ball nut. He did not reach the excited stage because he was wearing his dog backpack and pinch collar and we were in the middle of a long run.
Over the next few weeks, I will have to start taking him places with just his regular collar and no backpack. I also want to reach the point where he is behaving well regardless of how much exercise he has had. But it’s nice to start out this way, in order to be successful from the start.
