Here’s a shot from my walk tonight with Lexi. This is right around the corner from our house in Narragansett and I love this view. It was nice and quiet and peaceful out tonight. On our way home we saw our neighbors walking across the street with their poodle, so it presented a perfect opportunity to work on Lexi’s reactiveness. A man had stopped us to ask (and give many compliments) about Lexi, so she was already sitting patiently while I talked to the man and while he pet her. She perked up when she saw our neighbors, but I was able to keep her attention on me instead of the dog pretty easily, with the help of some great treats, of course. She did GREAT – didn’t pull towards the dog, whine, or get worked up at all. It’s a small step, and something we are constantly working on, but I was very happy with how polite she was, with both the man and seeing our poodle neighbor. It was a nice way to end a long day!
