How are you doing on our 21-day dog walking and training challenge?
More details on the challenge here.
Overall, it’s been going well for Ace and I. During the week, I tend to walk him first thing in the morning around 6 a.m.
I don’t do this on the weekends though, and then I find it’s harder to make the time for his walk as the day goes on. First thing in the morning is definitely best for me.
This challenge has really helped me focus on training my dog while also being more fun and relaxed. I split the walk up so it’s some of both.
I work with Ace on focused heeling (which he loves) and then time to sniff and be “free” which is also fun for him.
This is much better than that in-between, zombie-type walk where I’m not paying much attention to him. You know?

We are all committing to walking our dogs (various distances) for 21 days in a row. Plus, we’re all working on separate training goals during these walks. You can read more about the challenge here, and I hope you’ll join us for the remaining two weeks.
