It was me!
I did something pretty unusual – I took my girls out without thinking too much. I know there are proper leash training guides, but I decided to go with my guts. We just go out, and I’m learning by doing. And now I’m going wild – I didn’t even come up with proper routines. Ok, there’s one: they’ll always get their beloved dry food afterwards; I want them to look forward to something when they get in.
Well, “they” is an exaggeration. Tessa loves to be outside, Kajsa not so much – she normally chooses to stay inside. I’m not surprised; Kajsa is always more careful than Tessa. As much as I’d love to see Kajsa outside, it’s a great opportunity to have some alone-time with Tessa. Kajsa is quite dominant, and I’m always struggling to give Tessa enough attention. I’ll eventually do some proper leash training with Kajsa, because I think she’d love to be in the garden as well. She just needs some support there, but for now I’m focusing on Tessa.
And no, of course she isn’t always hanging out and looking adorable. She’s exploring every stone, eating grass and annoyed that I don’t let her hunt birds. Oh, and she loves to play with my neighbor’s hula hoop!
