Now that Fawn is fully vaccinated, we're ready for some hiking! I don't do anything heavy in the deep wilderness but I do enjoy casual nature walking and hiking as well as exploring along lakes and beaches.
My question is how to handle other off-leash dogs? I keep Fawn close and away from strange dogs and people. I plan to take her to areas with leash restrictions to cut down on any incidents but people tend to do what they want around here.
My beagle mix is aloof to others dogs, ignores and follows her nose anyway, so this was never an issue but now that Fawn is 40lbs, I can't just hike her under my arm like I have in the past.
