So far, our walking group has been fortunate to have found beautiful, less-traveled routes for all our walks. Even when we've met an off-leash dog or two, we've had relative success. Until this week. We found a beautiful little neighborhood with light traffic and a good view. When we tested the area before selecting it and also when we walked it two weeks ago, it seemed to be a great route. This week, however, all the dogs were out.
Granted, their owners were right there, but that didn't stop them from walking right up to our group. With a few "yellow dogs" in the group, this is not only stressful for our walkers, but does not set our dogs up for success. Unfortunately, we've found the first walk route that just hasn't worked out!
