My mutt and I walked downtown for day 29 of our challenge. Ace has been downtown before, but not for a walk. I like parading him around where there are lots of people. He was a good boy, wearing his choke collar and looking up for treats every now and then. Treats have been making a big difference in his heeling. I’ve also been letting him carry a ball in his month sometimes. This makes him more focused, like his has a job to do. It’s the same effect as when he wears a doggie backpack, only it doesn’t leave him as tired.
