Oops. I suck at life and forgot to blog there for a couple weeks. *whistles innocently*
I have no excuses. I shan't even pretend.
What I want to discuss today though is dogs. Specifically, walking dogs. More precisely, loose-leash-walking dogs. And heck, why don't I just go out and admit that I'm talking about training the Kirbster to LLW.
Kirbs is a terrible walker. We can't take her out on anything but a gentle leader, and even then she's a bossy thang, pulling us down the street. We've taken her to classes, and she's mastered sit, shake and down, but absolutely refuses to be walked nicely. It's to the point where we can't take her on a walk that even goes the length of our block.
So, does anyone have any suggestions for training a dog? I wish we could meander the 'hood like the pups at Two Pitties in the City! I'm always so jealous of their wanderings.
So help a girl out, how do I keep her under control? We've tried treats, reversing direction, stopping, ignoring her and nothing works.
