Each day when I walk Kobe, my goal is to avoid seeing other dogs. Today, I wasn't so lucky! We headed up North Tawas Lake Road, which is actually Kobe's favorite route to follow. I tried to go a different direction, but he balked and started giving me a hard time. It was apparent that Kobe had already made up his mind, which way he wanted to go. We had a nice walk and he made a few jaunts out into the weeds, beside the road. The air was pretty cold, but I was dress accordingly. After reaching Tawas Lake, we turned around, then headed back towards home. In the distance I saw an older lady walking a Brittany Spaniel, on the opposite side of the road. I took a deep breath and shortened Kobe's lead, so he had the least amount of control. Once he spotted that dog, Kobe started raring up like a wild horse! I spoke firmly and tightened my grip around his collar. The more I demanded his attention, the less resistance Kobe gave. Soon the lady and her dog were past us, with no bad encounter from Kobe. There's one more hurdle we just made it over! I was so happy to get back home:) Photo:borrowed from Pixabay

it takes a good dog owner to handle a strong dog when they see something they want I have 7 & when I take them for a walk I had BETTER be on my toes, cause it don't take but a sec for one to get crazy to make the other ones go crazy too & they are a hand full.
