the joys of Go4aWalk? day #136 ~ Calgary pet photography

the

joys of

Go4aWalk? day #136 . . .

day #136 complete . . . over an hour long dog walk today but back to our own Calgary neighbourhood.  even though it was something familiar to Jake, we changed it up by walking on the opposite side of the street and in a different direction.  since dogs aren’t great generalists even small changes in the usual routines can provide needed mental stimulation.

on the walk we noticed the May long weekend traffic has picked up as everyone prepares for the first long weekend of the camping season.

. . . wishing everyone a safe and relaxing

Victoria Day long

weekend.

the

joys of

Go4aWalk? day #135 . . .

day #135 complete . . . a 4 hour long dog walk today to another new Calgary neighbourhood.  massively high distraction levels with tonnes of traffic, squirrels and bunnies.  we kept things positive to make sure Jake succeeded and gained confidence.  he stayed focused on me and not the distractions.

. . . Jake’s confidence is growing

with each new

challenge.

the joys of Go4aWalk? day #134 ~ Calgary pet photography

the

joys of

Go4aWalk? day #134 . . .

day #134 complete . . . a 45 minute long dog walk today to one of the many natural wetlands in our Calgary neighbourhood.  super high distraction levels with school buses and screaming children but Jake did really well.  he kept looking at me instead of getting fixated and we managed to keep moving.

. . . it’s a wonderful feeling

when your dog

looks to

you.
