Since Zoe hurt her paw at the park last week, we've been resting her. She seems fine now but I'm not taking any chances and I'm continuing the rest for a few more days. Thanks to everyone who have asked about her!
I spent quite a lot of time this past summer working on separation training with my two dogs so Zoe is happy to stay home and nap while I take Phoenix out. Phoenix is medium to high energy and she really needs an outlet for it. This week we've gone on a few solo adventures and it was so fun to spend some one on one time with her.
One of Phoenix's favorite things to do is play on kid playgrounds. She loves sliding down the slide! So this was a huge reward for her after walking so nicely on a loose leash (at least one of my dogs can!).
After the slide, Phoenix found these little cut outs and she jumped through both of them without being cued. She did it completely on her own! I had to take a video, so the video is set up so you can see.
Phoenix and I had a great time on our adventures and Zoe was fine staying home. I highly recommend spending one on one time with each of your dogs if you have a multi-dog household. It's very eye opening. Phoenix is perfect on leash without her sister influencing her. She didn't care about any of the critters running around and she was really good. It's really fascinating how two dogs walking together can egg each other on and cause problems. I love having a multiple dogs, don't get me wrong but it's nice to get out with just one sometimes!
Happy Fit Dog Friday everyone!
