Milos Z Day 7, yesterday evening. She wasn't in mood for walking, so we played in the backyard and it was nice. This wasn't tough for me, because I walked her before a lot, but never 7 days in a row, so it was exciting.

Milos Z Day 6. We took a walk for about half an hour, and we got caught in the rain! My mother was pissed off because I was sopping wet and in the past two hours I drank, like a litre of tea!
Milos Z Day 5, yesterday. As I said in my "Day 4" post, I was out all day, so I obligated my sister to take Bea for a walk. She told me Bea listened to her and was obedient. She walked her for about half an hour, so I guess it went well.

Milos Z Day 4. I had really tight schedule today, but I managed to take Bea for a walk. It was only about 15 minutes, but I'm glad I endured in challenge on my fourth day. Tomorrow I won't be home all day, but I made sure that my sister will take her for a walk! ;)
S C Day7: Well I just completed the challenge and it took the whole week to train my puppy to walk but I feel like it was a great lesson both of us. I plan on taking her out for walks regularly and now I feel as though I understand her better and what makes her anxious so that I can avoid them (ex: other dogs and routes with other dogs) in the future! Thank you for this great challenge! It gives me time to bond with my puppy and we both get exercise from it!
Milos Z Day 3, today. We were about to take a walk, but there were a lot of stray dogs in the street so I decided not to. Instead, we played in the garden and destroyed it a bit. Grandma was not so happy, but it was ok.

Milos Z Day 2, yesterday. We took a walk to the store. It took us a while because of all the snooping, but it was nice, and people were telling me how beautiful dog I have!

S C Day 5: Yay! This is actually working! After day 1 I thought it would always be a nightmare to walk her but now she's actually enjoying the walk now! I can never seem to make the walk as long as I would like though because we always run into a street dog in which I have to turn around and go back home to avoid a dog fight. But she seems less stressed and has less anxiety about walking now. She stopped nipping at my legs and seems to be a lot happier! I'm going to keep this up!
Milos Z Day 1. I bathed my Beatris! After a long, long winter and cold weather, I finally washed up my dog! She was soooo dirty I can't even describe ti! She likes swimming, but when it comes to bathing, she can't stand it and keeps giving me "the sad look". So, after that, we played in grass, until I got tired and fell down. It was great, and reminded me of time when we were much younger and played all day :)

S C Day 4: Getting better at it. The walk went a little further this time. I noticed she walks better when I look up instead of down at her, keep a strong posture, and keep a tempo with either jingling my keys, snapping my fingers, or patting my hip. If I break this she gets nervous again. I also have trouble with the fact that my neighborhood has a lot of stray dogs loose so I have to watch out for them because yesterday an older dog tried to come after my puppy so I scooped her up and took her home. But she's jumping and nipping at my legs a little less (still does it but less). I also have her sit when we get home before I take the leash off her and then I pet her and say "good girl" and we walk up the stairs together.
S C Day 3: Still having trouble but I want to keep up with this challenge to benefit both me and my dog.
S C Day 2: Walked with my puppy a little bit further this time. She has some serious anxiety about walking. Probably my fault since I didn't train her properly from the start. She has now begun to nip at the back of my legs (which hurts) indicating that she wants to go back home. I hope this gets easier. I think it will in time though. She has a lot of energy so it's nice to get it out through exercise so she's quieter when we get back.
S C Day 1: Walked my puppy, played fetch with her, and went up and down my stair case a few times with both my puppy and my older dog. I can't walk my older dog because she has asthma.

Sherry H Day one. Finally. It's been a looong winter and we haven't gotten out at all. My poor girl, she has, what I think is arthritis, in her hind leg so she gets sore if we do too much. She loves it though but always ends up in pain and sleeping with a heating pad. She's only 7 so it's a bummer that her leg hurts (from an old dog fight injury) because she used to be sooo active and LOOOVES running around like a loony toon, but she pays for it now :'(
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
