I've noticed that some people don't let their dogs sniff at all while going on walks and also keep a very short leash. I have a hard time with this as Heidi really loves to sniff and I hate to deprive her of the activity she loves so much. It's not that I let her be the leader during the walk, but I do keep the leash a little longer so she can sniff the ground as we're walking and I will occasionally stop and let her sniff if she seems to find something really interesting.
Am I being too wimpy of an owner?How do others handle this? She is a bit of a puller--even with the prong collar.
