This morning we went on a three mile walk in the park. There's a great walking path through the woods, and the dogs LOVED it. They did better than I expected as far as barking, there were a few barks, but I learned that if I keep them moving they are less likely to bark. I take responsibility for getting them out of the path of people or other dogs, and we're all happy. Plus, by the end they were EXHAUSTED poochies. I'll definitely be going back soon! Great practice for walking on paths with other people and animals.
On another note, they're funny. This was them after we left them in an empty room with their bed for the afternoon.
