Dominic has developed a real love for hiking with me and the dogs. he LOVES to be the first one going up the trail. He'd prefer to run if i was being honest, but that is just not something i do, so we walk. A few more weeks of the trails at Palmer park (literally 3 blocks from our house) and I'm going to attempt to do a much longer one with him. Hopefully I can round up another adult to come with us just in case.... but the trail I have in mind is pretty heavily traveled.
Anywho. Kumar, our new puppy has anxiety. He throws up in the car within a block, and it took me some serious focusing on it to even get him willing to walk on a leash. I think because of the anxiety he is going to be our best leash walker. He wants to stay very near me and is not interested in running ahead/pulling like Kama.
so we decided we would take Kumar and Kama hiking last Saturday. We did 5 miles in 2 hours. And Kumar didn't throw up (tho he did pee out of anxiety when petted by a stranger and drool a river when we got into the car to head up to the trailhead)
Here are pictures from Kumar's first hike.
