    Default Ruggles and I Went Back To Square One

    Ruggles and I have been working on our on leash skills and we are improving, so much that after our walk up Hurricane Creek today I took him downtown and inside the Post Office. I have been putting his harness on plus his necklace (pincher collar). We start out hitched up to the harness; I give him only 6 to 8 inches of leash, tell him "close" if he starts pulling, and switch to the pincher collar when he doesn't listen and keeps pulling. Yesterday and today he stayed in the harness the whole time and there were many distractions like kids playing and other dogs. I am looking forward to the day when we can leave his necklace home!

    @2BullyMama I hope it can be put away soon. I have plenty of links in it so it just gives him a gentle reminder and helps with the steering. Ruggles does want to stay close except when he gets too excited. When it cools off here he's going to doggie day care a couple days a week, too!
