I'm motivated! Going to help Gunther release built up energy and get myself in shape by taking him to our local pond that is set up as a rec area for active people. Tomorrow will be my first day and I have to admit I'm a little scared. Even though heeling should be on the left I'm going to have him on my right so he can't lunge at anything he might be tempted to. I'm also going to use the prong and the moving right along method. If I just keep walking like there's nothing to look at he should follow suit. Don't think I'll get much brisk walking in until he learns how to behave on the routes but I have to start somewhere. There really isn't any less populated I can do this in so I have just this. At least there the path is wider than other places and I can move him off into the grass if necessary. I wish there were more places we could go but there aren't. I don't know how you big city people do it! But I guess if your dog grows up with that much activity then it might go smoother.
