Every now and then when I’m walking dogs, I will just stop, ask them to sit for about 30 seconds and then I will say “walk on”. That is there cue to start walking again. I do this for a couple of reasons: 1. They’re super focused when they’re on the walk and I like to know I can get their attention any time I need it. 2. It’s good to continue to incorporate training into their daily routines. Just as we need to continue to refine our skills, so must dogs.
This always reminds me how important it is for me to pause and reflect on the past week and then think about the next one as I “walk on”.

My favorite quote from the week: “Start being afraid of what could go wrong, and focus on what could go right.” Unknown.
I’d like to point out that dogs make up more than 50% of the pictures in your February Photo-a-Day calendar. Don’t get me wrong I’m not complaining, I think it’s cool. (And, by the way, I’m really good at math.)
