Re: Why do you walk your dog?
Wow, I put my enjoyment and am currently the only one to do so. The dog comes along at my pace. My pace is rather slow and the dog enjoys being with me.
I would rather they do not sniff and all, but sometimes they do. Then I stop, let them relieve themselves and clean it up.
If I do not, they tend to be more anxious to press on or whatever, I feel a relieved dog is a little is a more relaxed dog.
And the dogs with lots of energy, I make run up the stairs and check the doors up town. This is fun. It is fun to watch them "work" and for them to come running back to me.
I did not get dogs because I wanted to save them, or because I wanted to give them a great life. I got dogs because I wanted the dogs. If I do not enjoy the walk, then I will not be likely to continue to walk with my dogs.
The dogs love to be with me. That sounds like I am God's gift to dogs, but it is true. Yes, on occasion they may like to sniff a few spots, but they are so happy to be going with me, they do not really care if I take charge of the walk. If I have one tag along, it is happier than I am about it whatever I do.
