Total Brag

Well, it only took 3 1/2 years, but we have done it – we took a 20 minute walk…wait for it….

ON ONLY INARA’S FLAT COLLAR!!! No training collar of any kind – just her flat collar! I only had to use the leash once to restrain her and that’s because a squirrel darted in front of us about 15′ away, and then dashed up a tree and sat on a low branch talking smack to Inara. She wanted that squirrel, but I convinced her to sit and look at me instead. 

We stayed in the comfort zone of our street, and all the dogs/kids/people that were out and about were a good distance away. But you know what? I don’t care! We took a walk with just a regular collar!  I am totally doing the happy dance right now!

  1. Most excellent! Congratulations! I have to tell you that it takes a lot of hard work to achieve that. I let Quizz ‘spot’, then acknowledge it and we go on our way when we walk. But when he was a puppy, I was soooooo grateful for my training collar. Now, he’s content to keep the back yard free of squirels. 🙂
