|Abby evades capture just out of reach in the water|
And now of course she wants to race home!
I've been taking her on a daily walk for years now and we almost always walk at least 40 minutes and usually closer to an hour. (Gotta get my 10,000 steps each day!)
Well, one day a few months back, I thought I'd let her choose our route, figuring she'd take me on a nice long walk. Nope. She took me on this short little walk down to a deadend we'd never turned down before, then straight back home. It took us a measly 20 minutes.
Pretty sure she just wanted to get home and get her cookie.
Now, whenever we're in a hurry, we let her choose the route, and she always takes us on that little 20 minute loop! She'll try to drag me that way pretty much every day.
|Usually, she walks nicely beside me with a loose leash...|

Given the option, would your dog talk you on a long walk or a short one?
