But our pooches get the most out of controlled challenges, while being set them up for success.
This week for our PEDs walks, we moved to Presque Isle State Park. It's a great place to walk, but with a reactive dog, can be a challenge. There are tons of obstacles - people, bikes, dogs, skateboards.
With tourist season over, we decided to give it a try as this month's location and allow some of reactive dogs to make the venture, possibly for the first time!
How do you challenge your dog?
