Monday Mischief: Double Leash Tango

Two leashes

I have been walking two dogs for so long it is second nature to me. From changing hands behind my back, because someone goes right and then left, or stretching my arms so wide that you would think I was a tree, I have got this down. Yes, those are knots in the lines that you see; I do that on every leash. First, I do that so I can grip the leash lower down at certain intervals when I want to shorten up and, also so that I can drop a leash and step on it without it running right under my foot. A funny thing happens if/when I do drop someone’s lead, they stop and turn around and look at me with a ‘what’s a matter with you’ face. Do you do a leash dance? What’s yours like?

What mischief did you get into today?



This is a blog hop. I hopped it from Snoopy. Check them out for more mischief.

10.24.12 Being At The End Of The Line

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Why is it that most dogs like to walk as far out on the lead as they can? They may not pull or jump, but they like to be at the ‘end of the line.’  Or is it actually at the ‘front of the line?’  Either way, almost any dog that I have had, likes to take the lead as far as they can.  I know that leading is suppose to be my job and  I am sure that many of you animal trainers out there are saying that I am being ‘lead around’ by my dogs (which is probably not a good thing from a leadership stand-point), but sometimes, and usually on our sniffy walks around the neighborhood, I just don’t mind.  Sofie is more of a follower than a leader.  She is off leash 99.9% of the time and usually a bush or 2 back sniffing away.  Louise is a step ahead.  Lulu is on the leash because I just do not trusted that she will not bolt into someone’s yard if she sees a squirrel or other creature.  When is it OK to follow their lead? Am I suppose to keep them tight by my side and at my heel in all situations? But this is the sniffy, go potty, walk, so should I care?.  I don’t mind being at the end of the line – as long as I am the leader.
