We went on a small hike today up to a cabin that sits on a hill in the forest. Titan and Hilary carried our picnic in their backpacks while Wilder came along just for fun. It’s too warm and humid right now for the dogs to carry out any real work but we nevertheless try to keep them exercised and happy with smaller activities each day. Wilder still gets most of his exercise from playing at home but at this age we also introduce “working walks”, i.e. shorter walks where the focus is on going forward, rather than on stopping to smell everywhere. Today we trained On by, Left/Right and Whoa, and Wilder did really well following these commands – with a little help from his friends

Preventing tangling when walking with three dogs on long lines is not an easy task…

Wilder fell asleep on a soft tuft of moss. For a young puppy even a short hike is a big adventure ;-)
