TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Barnie is a very young dog who is a little overwhelmed by all the things he’s seeing in his retirement but each time he goes out he gets more and more confident.
Although he was out of his comfort zone on his first time out, he doesn’t pull on the lead. He isn’t interested in other dogs, indeed when a dachshund pup tried to come near him he shied away from it and he backed away from the noisy ducks. He did really well and even when he saw a squirrel he didn’t react, didn’t appear to even notice the rats scuttling around the undergrowth by the lake! Our volunteer who took him out started to wonder if he was actually a greyhound!
By his third visit out our volunteer reported, “The lane was very busy, with cars & several large van’s going too fast, he just calmly walked on.
Barnie walked nicely throughout the walk, no pulling or weaving, just showing interest in everything, as you would expect.
In the field we met a nice man with a Labrador & Jack Russell (both on leads!) Barnie looked & wagged his tail ❤ & we carried on our way.
He seemed most interested in sniffing & trying to have a nibble of the long grass, not too easy when you’re wearing your muzzle.
We stopped in some shade for a little rest & he promptly leaned against me for some fuss & a neck scratch.
He is a lovely dog & an absolute pleasure to walk.”
